It's me Susan from the Italy trip. It is so good to hear from you. I do not have much of a chance to embroider - work keeps me very busy. Can I give you my personal email address so we can keep in touch. I have found some great stitching websites and rejoined the Embroiderer's Guild. I would love to go on Mary's trip, I have to check out her website for more info.
I have great pictures from Italy - especiallly the embroidery.
