Saying Hello from Rome!

I was trying for almost half an hour to write how I feel and what I saw here in Rome so far, but I couldn’t find the right words. The history, architecture and art in this town is just incredible! So here are some of the photos I took that, sadly, can’t show well enough the beauty of Rome. And I still haven’t been to the Colosseum and Vatican. I have five more days to visit those and some other places, and I can’t wait! 🙂

Throwing a coin in the Trevi Fountain, over my left shoulder, as it should be done. 🙂

Have a nice day! 🙂

This and That and I’m going to Rome!

When you get the chance to travel to one of your dream destinations, what else could be interesting? That’s probably the reason why I took only three photos of my shawls, even though I have a lot finished. I’ve been weaving like crazy, and my back is very painful, but hey, I should be in Rome in a couple of days, so I’ll have a much needed break. 🙂

I’m sorry about the poor photos, but hubby went to Rome a week ago and took the good camera with him.

These shawls look much better than the photos show, they are very soft and warm, and the colors are much more vibrant.

So, the thing is that my husband is currently in Rome on business, and will be there till November 10th. And I got the chance to join him for ten days! I wish I could stay longer, but I have too much work to do. But ten days is great! I am thankful for the opportunity to see Rome. So, I made my self a journal (of course), although a bit in a hurry, but I like how it turned out.

I used different papers for the inside, envelopes, cereal boxes and scrap paper. So there is lots of room for writing, drawing, and pockets for all kinds of things.

I also wanted to show you an ATC I made for the swap at Blue Twig Studio. The theme was “Pink” in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Have a wonderful day! 🙂

Inspired by Autumn

I still don’t like Autumn very much. But this stage, with brown and yellow and red, is amazing! I don’t want to think how it will look when all the leaves fall down and rain makes the ground look more like porridge than a colorful leafy carpet, instead I’m going to enjoy and draw inspiration from these lovely colors.

And here they are, two new shawls:

Same warp, different weft. I like. 🙂
