Cortona, Italy

We are now in a villa in Cortona in Tuscany .... very much out of the pages of "Under the Tuscan Sun" .....




We are with my sister and her husband and family and some of their friends.  They are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary and I was Wendy's bridesmaid and Pete was Greg's best man!   Such a great way to celebrate!!  That's my sister in orange with her husband Greg and David and I together with Peter and his wife Lisa .... On our way to a beautiful dinner last night !! 





The gardens are full of olive trees and beautiful flowers ....


The wine and food is amazing ....




And the closest I have come to stitching is finding this beautiful old machine in an eye ware shop ...


The sunflowers are amazing too ....


Resting and relaxation are the order of the day .... Although we did walk to the top of the hill today .... one hour uphill... to walk off some of those lovely pastries they do so well here !!
