I keep finding wonderful little treasures at the convent where we are staying, from artwork to wonderful colors of inspiration.
This morning on our way to finding a good cup of coffee I was already taking pictures of all the iron work and the doors. So much to take in!
I spent the morning with Baukje, Vanelle and Mary at the Museo Archeologico Statale di Orvieto. The museum was very interesting all related to artifacts found in this area. The imagery on many of the pots were wonderful. I can see many quilts in my future especially related to my class here.
All 12 students and two husbands have arrived and Kristi and Bill had a reception for all of us this evening. Bill gave us a little tour of the convent and shared with us this wonderful Fresco which is being renovated on one of the kitchen walls of the convent.
