San Andres Xecul

San Andres Xecul is a village in the department of Totonoicapan that features beautiful animals embroidered on the collars of its huipiles. You can find everything from birds to farm animals to woodland creatures to jungle animals.

Here are two in-progress and one complete.

As I bumble around trying to sew a straight stitch with my new fandangled sewing machine, I see art work like this and think, "Pffft-well at least I have my writing!" What beautiful intricate design...

Hi Erin,
Can you resend me what I owe you for Peanut's Huilpil (San Lucas Toliman)? I want to pay you today. Thanks!

Whoops, meant to leave you my email to make it easier for you.

The huilpil is absolutely stunning by the way. What a special gift for her!
