We spent the week in Italy creating a piece that included the images of the area that had the most impart on each one of us. Each one was unique. They included the poppies that filled the countryside, images from local pottery, the mosaics from the Duomo, the local birds and the lush landscape. We also started the embellishment using hand dyed fibers and beads. I was fortunate to have a wonderful group of 12 avid stitchers who took home a lovely piece of Italy as a memento.
I will be returning for my annual visit to Orvieto, Italy in September 2013 to teach again for Kritsi and Bill. More information can be found on their website. www.adventuresinitaly.net
From Orvieto Cathy and I travelled by train to Rome then flew to Sicily where we met up with my parents for a 10 day vacation. More wonderful photographs soon!
