Oh, the Romance of Rome!
As they say, "All roads lead to Rome", but have you ever been to Rome? It was many moons past for me, but it is a city still etched in my memory. Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum, St. Peter's Basilica, and a shabby pensione that overlooked a courtyard fountain. I was 16, and backpacking across Europe--yes, I had a young, daring spirit even then, not to mention trusting parents, and Rome was--hot. Don't laugh, but that was absolutely one of my most vivid memories. There was a heat wave, and I was carrying an overloaded pack. See how I can bring a romantic travel experience down to a base level?
But this graphic fabric was so perfect as the center for my third plate, and remember what I said about changing colors and palettes? It was a cool pastel after those heavy colors, and maybe I was looking to change some of my memories for the better. Who knows?
My two little Doxie sisters had been very good girls up to this point, but the minute I was done with my work it was time for a run in the yard. The cold didn't stop a game of ball, and some relief for my neck and shoulders after stitching this one down.
See you tomorrow!
Come on, Doxie girls.
Let's go sew.
