Images of Murano

Design drawings found in a glass blowing factory in Murano, Italy. Murano was wonderfully colourful and exuberant with huge glass flowers, ornaments, jewelery and lights.

Holiday Inspirations

You may be wondering why you haven't heard from me for awhile.
I've just come back from a four week trip which included 9 days in Paris and a Mediterranean Cruise ending in Barcelona.
It was a wonderful time - no cooking or bed making for 4 weeks - heaven.
Every building had motifs and textures in mosaics, tiles and carvings that suggested design ideas. Between my husband and I we took about 700 photos.
I think some of the ones I've posted today will be finding their way into my wool applique. Can't wait to get started.
Hope they inspire you too.
