Back home

Well I'm safely home and I had a great time in Italy. Here is a picture of the Massaria where we were staying.

If you are interested I've put a few more of my photos here. Just click and you will be taken to my webshot album.

We worked very hard sketching and painting, designing and then transfering our observations into stitch. I have three pieces finished one - a 3D 'stone' I haven't taken a photo of yet. There are also three other pieces that I'm working on. They are all samples and quite small. My sketchbook is full of my sketches not all very good I'm afraid. Have you ever tried to sketch and paint a stone - trust me it's difficult!

Welcome back Sheila. It looks like a beautiful place & area to stay. Love your two pieces - such gorgeous, warm autumnal colours. The photo of the tree bark is fab too - can't wait to see what you do with that. :0)

Your samples are wonderful Sheila, and as for the stone, since you are the only one who knows what it looked like you can safely tell everyone youe sketch is perfect ;)
