Hola! soy Arlette, de Costa Rica, Les contaré un poco acerca de mi, me encantan las manualidades, creo que eso fue debido a que mis dos abuelitas las hacían, y como era tan traviesa, fue una forma de mantenerme tranquila. Una de mis abuelitas Isabel, ya cumplió sus 102 años. Estudié Relaciones Públicas, soy soltera, sin hijos. Imaginense que triste sería la vida sin colores..., mis colores favoritos, son los colores tierra, aunque no tengo alguno en especial que me desagrade, a no ser por los colores chillones o fosforecentes, creo que no "soy compatible" con ellos. Muchas gracias por tomarse el tiempo y visitar mi blog, me gustaría tener muchas amigas!!!. I'm Arlette from Costa Rica, I'll tell you a bit about myself, I love to make crafts. I studied Public Relations, I'm single and don't have kids My fave colours are the brown shades, although I don't dislike any. Thank you for stoping by, please leave me a comment that way I'll know you been here and I'd like to have lots of friends!

I'm working in an apliqued christmas quilt, I need to rush to finish it for christmas, I know I can do it!. I already did the "worst" part:-the applique-, lol. It consists in 9 christmas blocks, it's all decorated with ribbons, buttons, bells, etc. I'll take a closer shoot when's finished.
Christmas' my fave time of the year, we don't have a "white christmas" as many as you do. Ours, is sunny and windy, not too hot or too cold, the weather's just nice, really nice...
We use to eat tamales, it's the typical food for christmas, but you can eat them all year long, the dessert is Queque de Navidad (Christmas Cake), it's a kind of fruitcake, with dehidrated fruits, raisins and rum (you can skip it), it's scrumptious!, hmmmmm.
Have you heard about the Virtual Christmas Quilt Show?, Sew Cal Gal's hosting a parade christmas quilting and having a giveaway, isn't it a great idea?, take a look at her blog, join in, it's worth it!

  16. Love your Christmas Quilt Arlette. I can't wait to see it finished and quilted. The tamales and cake sounds good. I traveled to Mexico quite a bit so I've had the tamales and their milk cake, but your cake sounds really yummy with the fruit, raisins and rum. Yumm.. My mother used to make rum ball cookies that were good.. Have a very Merry Christmas.
