Well, if you've been wondering what had happened to me, I've been in Italy for a month!
I just got back and haven't unpacked yet but I wanted to give you a little preview of things to come...
I visited Bologna (needlelace piece from the Collezioni Comunali d’Arte Museum in Bologna):
...Sicily (sign for the Drawn Thread Work Museum in Chiaramonte Gulfi):
...Sardinia (Byssus Museum in Sant'Antioco):
...Parma (Puncetto stand at the Italia Invita Textile Forum 2011):
...and Florence (Palazzo Davanzati Museum and the trapunto quilt reproduction stitched by Silvana Vannini):
It was a needlework-themed holiday and I saw and did so very many lovely things!
Special thanks to Elisabetta for the photos of Bologna and Sicily!
Please be patient while I get myself organized and start to answer all your emails!!
