Small Glimpses of a Very Big Class!

I am still having a dickens of a time trying to get posts to upload to the blog.  Slow hotel wifi -- I can get things posted to facebook, but anything larger than one photo just doesn't go!

So this is a sneak preview of what went on in this morning's A Little Bit Hexie workshop.

Gorgeous hotel, great room for 40 of us to gather and get some English paper piecing in!

This was followed by lunch out on the town -- and a ride over to Pisa to explore the grounds around the leaning tower of Pisa...more photos to follow as I am able to upload them.

It is just amazing being here.

I'm actually sitting outside a restaurant with free wifi thinking it might be better than the hotel wifi -- but from the slow upload speed, I think they are much the same ---

Maybe life is telling me to leave the blogging aside for a bit it will wait.  Just enjoy the quilters, take in every aspect of Italy -- and write later.

But I know me.

I'll keep trying!

Much love from Montecatini Torme!
