Tlaquepaque #1

January 13, 2018

Say what !!! (T-lockey-pockey). Yep, that’s the name of this painted canvas. It is an Indian word meaning “the best of everything” and is/was the name of a shopping center of adobe styled buildings in Sedona, AZ. It is surrounded by wrought iron gates, fountains, archways and is shaded by large sycamore trees which gives the feeling of a Mexican village for which it was named. This is a very old canvas so I am not sure if the shopping center still exists in Sedona. I haven’t been there in years. Below is a photo of the real place that was included in the class material.

You may remember that I picked this up in November at my guilds stash sale…it just called to me and I stitched on it until I took Fire and Ice. Now that I am ready for a big project on my floor frame I have made progress. This will be a fun project. I am looking forward to the trees and flowers. Here is where I am as of this afternoon.

    Very pretty. Something like my New Orleans picture I am working on. Houses, gardens, flowers and vines. Enjoy.

    I was actually there not so long ago, and loved it! So many beautiful shops and handmade works. You canvas brings it all back and I will enjoy watching you stitch this unique place. Thank you for sharing.

    Terrific place, although I haven’t been there in years either. Fun canvas, really like your subtle shading on the back wall.
