Back from Cozmuel, Mexico

We had a great time with great weather in the 70s. The food was great, all inclusive with drinks and all the meals. My son was more interested playing on the beach and the pools than doing anything else. There were 2 big pools on each side of the resort. The beach is very clear with blue water that you can see the fish. We did a few hours of snorkeling with a boat trip. Right at the resort, there are lot of fish to do snorkeling as well. We are definitely going back to Mexico next year for another round of all inclusive vacation.

2 Finished Biscornu

The first one is from a french designer Tralala. I want to make some mini biscornu this year,
this one turned out very cute. I have just the "perfect button" for it as well. The button really enhances the whole piece. Stitched with 32 light sand Belfast. I added a few pearl beads in the front and on the bottom as well.

I wanted to experiment with the Clover Yo Yo gadgets. I picked the small Flower yo yo and it was very easy to use. The instruction are great. The instruction are in English, French, German and Spanish. I like the rose motif in Kesley's Grandma pitty poo chart, so I just use the chart to come up with this biscornu:

I should have put the design closer instead of so far apart. Here is the side view:

here is the front:

The Keslyn's chart can be found here:
