Happy Thanksgiving from Canada!

So very much to be thankful for!
(And thank you to Ralph Waldo Emerson for penning the poem which inspired this quilt!)

A Wonderful Holiday

Guess where dear hubby and I were last month!
Here are a few hints...
We visited some beautiful cathedrals,
 and some incredible markets.
 Got a new perspective on "upcycling",
 and watched masterpieces being created in chalk on the streets.
 Climbed almost 500 steps up a bell tower for this view,
 saw lots of buildings in my favourite colors,
 and a boat or two.
 We hiked along the side of a mountain
 to a little town perched on the hillside.
 We saw grapes ready for harvesting
and sampled wonderful wine.
We explored medieval villages
 and more beautiful cathedrals
 and saw views like this around every corner. 
Good bye, beautiful Italy!
We can't wait to go back.
