My 9-day trip in Italy was brimming with fabulous food, stunning views and awesome friendship. The last day in the medieval hill top town ended today.
For Hong Kong people, Italy is renowned for shopping but the brilliant Tuscany scenery is my cup of tea.
My friends' medieval house located in the village is artistic
"Portoncello" is the name of the house, from there......
Early sunrise to start a day.......
Beautiful sunset to end the day
That's life of living, tranquility and simplicity
My last day of lunch ended with the typical Italian food in the balcony. My stay in my friend June's house was inspiring and fun, not only I can enjoy their style of living, I was delighted to share the common of interest. We worked together to experiment the fun of Eco printing and wool felting.
We tried the local leaves for Eco printing, some euc, some grapes, rose and oak leaves.
We shared the techniques of nuno felting
Prints and dyes on silk scarf
Prints on paper
Mittens and warmer making and dyeing
Nuno felt shawl with textural surface. June said that it looks like galaxy, planet. I said we name it "Universal".
June you're amazing and artistic. You made such beautiful items. I was so happy we shared the fun and creativity.
Thank you June and Dick, you made my stay in your house so memorable.
Your lovely Vespina was fanatic to warm my bed almost every night before me!
Today I'm leaving for England for another visits then to Holland for a couple of days to meet my admired artists.
