A wrap up has begun……..

And this first Texas winter get-away will come to a finish……for this year. On Wednesday we headed to Mexico, Nuevo Progreso, to be precise. It’s just a short walk on the bridge over the Rio Grande River from the US parking area.

On our previous treks, the streets were totally packed with bargain-seeking US shoppers, this time…not so much!

It was definitely an interesting experience! Not to be repeated til next year.

The barn quilt was finished up later that day. I’m pleased with this one!! IMG_5582


This will be hung when we return, the end of December.

Now……let’s see…..what’s next…………..

    A perfect Barn Quilt. You could make a whole series of them. it will look really good with the window box near by.

    The barn quilt turned out perfectly, didn’t it? I love it. Happy travels!

  3. There was the time I was in my 20’s and decided to drive across the border. In my naïveté I was shocked that none of the street signs were in English! I expected dual language but no. I wasn’t sure I was going to make it back to Texas that day!

    Your barn quilt is great! I love it. Hoping for a safe, uneventful trip north.

  6. I love your barn quilt. You amaze me what you can do with color and a vision, oh, and a design.

    The last few times I was over the border, the streets weren’t as crowded either. With my job I frequently went down for inspections so we usually went across outside of McAllen at Old Progresso. Love the Barn Quilt – whenever you hang it, it’ll be nice.

      The little town settled down after “Winter Texan Appreciation Day” a couple of weeks ago. Our resort is almost empty of those in park models. Almost “spooky”……

    The Barn Quilt is wonderful in it’s simple, clean lines, and beautiful colors. Can’t it’s already time to pack up and head north. Glad you had such a good season in Texas
