I asked her what she would like to be presented to her in the outstretched hand. No answer. I was just opening my box of old jewelry and junk and what fell out? A milagro (miracle), namely the 'big miracle' ... Our Lady of Guadalupe. Quietly I heard her say, "What else would I want in the outstretched hand if I am Expecting Miracles. That was the end of our conversation!
I worked like a mad woman. I was driven. The jewels are in her head dress. I love them there. There is still more work to be done on her neck/shoulders and the outstretched hand as well as her crown and halo. Who knows what is to come. We made real progress today and I didn't struggle one little bit. Amazing.
|It's difficult to see the jewels. There are rhinestones in her earrings, and down the right side, rosary beads and two medals are in her head dress. So difficult to get a good shot because of the light.|
OK, so I baked some banana bread tonight! A truly amazing event as I have not baked since arriving in Mexico. Mine does not look anything like the 'real thing', which you will find HERE, on Suzeque's blog, along with the recipe and mouth watering photographs which make mine look like a home economics class beginner. ha ha. The thing about this banana bread which is different is that it has coconut in it and an incredible LIME GLAZE drizzled over the top! Here's my version -- now go over and visit Suzeque!
Thanks for the visit. xxoo Donna
