This and That

 Lily had no fear riding on the back of the bike with either me or her daddy in front.
 College Girl was home all r!ight.
 A leather purse for me!
 There were many museums she went to, she is starting a life list. The assignment was to paint what caught your eye, so bugs it was.
 Other assignments.....
 including a panoramic of Florence.
 It seems I was the easiest to find gifts for....including personalized scissors.  Steph couldn't convey my personal stylized Capricorn symbol,VJ, to the Italian man who did the etching.
 This is the outside cover of the little book shown above.  They learned the marbling on paper from a...master?  Not sure what his 'title' would be, have to ask Steph.
This is a cloth she brought me, hand dyed.  I am looking forward to stitching it to something...or maybe wear it as a scarf like it's intended for.

  1. Hi Vicky, I've gotten impatient waiting for the start of Arlee's class, but at least I've had a smidge of extra time to visit blogs. Love all your family pictures. So often we (stitchers) communicate on Jude's blog or elsewhere in "hidden" ways. Your daughter's artwork is wonderful. I am a new visual artist myself. Have spent most of my life stitching, but now I'm drawing and painting as well. Enjoyed seeing all her work from Italy. I can really relate to the style and her color palette. Love the bugs!
