Jet Lagged but Happy
In the wee hours of the morning we returned from a two-week vacation in Italy. As many of you know, I was scheduled to teach at the new Abruzzo School of Creative Art in Abruzzo, Italy, later this month. Although a small number of the classes offered at Abruzzo will be running, most (including mine) did not have sufficient registrations. Given how much my husband and I love Italy, we decided to go anyway. This time our travels took us far off the beaten path to the villages and countryside of Umbria, and the villages and gardens of Lazio. Wild poppies were in bloom across Italy when we arrived, and I took the above photo in the olive groves along the winding road to the hilltop town of Terni. Over the next week I will be blogging with photos of the many amazing sites I saw.
While I was on vacation, I learned that my quilt "In the Act", which you have now seen many times, took Second Place in the Infinity Art Gallery's International Fiber Art Show.

That's two awards for "In the Act" within weeks. I am thrilled and honoured to have been chosen.
Stay tuned for some gorgeous photos coming up. Now I need a nap.
