A Bit More of Italy ....

As we travelled through Italy my stitching was never far from me .... I always take canvas work to stitch because it is relatively small and compact and easy to travel with .... also a favourite to stitch .... this was on an Alitalia flight back from Sardinia to Rome .....



Everywhere we went the poppies were out and they were so beautiful .... see the bumblebee on the poppy on the left ?


This beautiful patchwork chair was in a restaurant .... it was a bit too big to pack into my bag and bring home ....


A beautiful sunset and dinner on a pier in Sorrento was very special ...


The street artwork is just divine ....



I think I've had enough limoncello to last me a lifetime .....


We had some great meals along the way ....


Walking down the zig zag pathway in Sorrento to the water ....



The fresh produce was amazing ..... artichokes in abundance ....



Every tile and mosaic was an absolute picture and very inspiring colour wise and quilt wise !!


This feature of tiles was gorgeous ... Sorrento ...


Evening drinks on a patio overlooking Sorrento ....


And then we arrived by ferry in Positano .... my birthday destination ....


 Loved the bright and colourful ceramics .... these were table decorations with succulents .... and the obligatory sparkling mineral water ...






David's first visit to Positano and my first visit when the sun was shining !!


The water was beautiful and the bougainvillea was amazing ....



Beautiful ceramic tile picture of Positano ...


The view out our little restaurant up the road from our accommodation ....


We ventured up into the hills to Ravello where the gardens were beautiful and the town square was just a picture ....   we had planned on doing part of the Walk of the Gods but our knees were suffering already from the number of steps ....


Looking down onto one of the gardens in Ravello .... more embroidery inspiration and the beautiful sea and coast in the background ....


And there are more photos to come !!!
