My trip to Italy 2, Orvieto

I came back from Italy saturday night with my heart full of wonderful memories....
It was such a great experience to be in Orvieto with all those lovely people. Bill and Kristi, who organized this trip, were so enthusiastic and such warm persons, they let you feel at home immediately!

And for me, Sue was the best of all, she was so dedicated, so inspiring with such an eye for the beautiful. I learnt a lot new embellishment stitches. And I am so proud of my work, thanks to Sue, for me it became a real piece of art.

And the whole group were such lovely women. We shared a lot, laughed a lot and worked hard together.
In one word this trip was STUNNING.
If you'll have the chance to go there next year, do sign up immediately. It's worth it.
(I already did !)  

Next coming days I'll show some pictures.
To day the wonderful city of ORVIETO.
But I start with a picture that I found on Sue's blog, the delicious cappuccino, I never drunk one like these before....

The first day we went to the Duome, a beautiful cathedral. In our work everyone was inspired by things they saw that day....

The small alleys are very romantic.

To be continued!

  1. What beautiful mosaics and alleys. I'd love to go to Italy, someday.

  2. I've been following along with your trip on Sue's blog and feeling very envious of you all, looking forward to seeing what you made Baukje..

  3. Wonderful pictures of Ovieto. I just wrote a long comment but it disappeared? Blogger is having trouble these days.

    I studied in Umbria and spent time in Ovieto and loved it also. Aren't those cappuccino's great?

    Hope to see the art piece you created there soon-or maybe you posted it and I missed it?

    Looking forward to seeing more of Ovieto too.

  4. Thanks for sharing your travels. Looking forward to seeing your work
