So what can a girl say it has been an amazing May and few weeks to add on that. Mom and I spent a week in Orvieto... Italy that is! I turned 29 years old in the land of grapes and parmigiana with a special lady named Sue and new friends who I will never forget. I sit here and I am a bit typeless its hard to really express how beautiful and magical a place really is. I think by far this was mom and I's greatest adventure YET.
Can you guess what Sue that I am talking about... yes it is the very talented and lovely Sue Spargo! What a great week of sewing it was. I can't tell you enough how talented the group of ladies that we meant! We each made a project that was special to us from what we had seen and incorporated it into a collage of fibers from wool to cotton. I wish I would have come home with that project done but I guess it will be nice working on it an remembering all the great fun we had.
This is Kori's definition of Italy: Romantic in both setting and the lovey dovey sense, its full of texture the country side really looks like a patchwork, its delicious and well what can I say inviting! I would go back in a heartbeat... to each of you that I have met on our trip you have each shown me that that where ever in the world you are you can find a kindred spirit. I hope that someday our paths will cross again....
P.S. Oh yea when I got home I got engaged! My Joshua asked me to marry him... a blog to come ;o)
