30 Day countdown to Colombia

If you've read my blog for any length of time you know I've been collecting dresses to take with me to Colombia next month.  Since my week consisted of work and end of year payroll, W2's, W3, 1099's....... and NO sewing to speak of, I thought I'd post a few photos from the last mission trips. 

I left my heart in Guatemala.

Coming back from the fields with their big machetes.
And then there was Bolivia.
And Peru

 Quilters and friends, far and wide, were generous. 
 I got suitcase number 2 and it all fit perfectly! (really, it did!)
And now I wait. 
Flights were confirmed, 2 bags will be checked for FREE, Colombian pesos ordered. These 30 days will fly by! Thank you all who donated!!!

Have a fantastic weekend!!
