Another long weekend

I've not been writing for some days but they have been busy days. I had to go to the dentist and I'll have to come back next week. Sigh! I cheered up when I went shopping with Lore. I bought some clothes for next summer. Yesterday was a holiday here in Italy, so we had another long weekend and we could go for a trip. We went to San Gimignano, 60km far from Florence.
San Gimignano is the town where my grandfather lived and I used to go often when I was a child.

Here are some pictures of the trip in the Tuscan country and in San Gimignano. Unfortunately some pictures are dark...







And here is my purchase in San Gimignano. I fell in love with these hand-painted potteries. In the middle the design represents the Tuscan country.



I've two finishes to share.

I finished my monthly Flip-It.




I finished my monthly Christmas ornament too. I stitched four Santas from the leaflet Old World Santas by Prairie Schooler. I used a piece of Lugana 28ct, Lichen Moss by Silkweaver. I used the whole space, now I've to choose another kind of fabric because I'm going to stitch other Christmas ornaments.
