CDP Theme Day: Creative Artisan | P for Peruvian

Rich textiles and a handcrafted llama grace my favorite Peruvian restaurant, El Tule, in neighboring Lambertville, just a 20-30 minute drive away. (My first post-work-travel stop, ceviche does wonders:)

All that clever (small) stitching must takes so much patience Lulu but so worth it, looks fantastic..
I tried tapestry once..let's just say it was a fancy that passed quickly :)

Jim said...

Marvellous.

Oh I love Lambertville! Is New Hope still pleasant, or east too busy? Sure hope they don't have a Starbucks! Met Abbie Hoffman on main street.....been to Ringing Rocks? Bowman's Tower?


Aloha

I have a Peruvian restaurant that is a short walk from my place and it is one of my favourite places to eat. They have wonderful hand-crafted pillows scattered about the bench seats and it is nice to see the same craftsmanship in your post.

How colourful! Real folk art.

The fiber art is wonderful, the menu reads like its own art, too. All the ceviche sounds wonderful! How do you choose, and stop at that?!
