The Pantheon, the Piazza Navona, the Quirinale, the Palazzo Barberini, and Castel Sant’ Angelo. During our four days in Rome we touched base with them all, some for the very first time. Mostly, though, it was a case of revisiting places we’ve enjoyed on past trips, taking in a few more details on a second visit, and reliving happy memories.
In my bag, at the ready for any stitching opportunity, I had pins, needles and a border strip for the Whirligig quilt. More importantly, I was ‘armed’ with a pair of scissors!
Not even a chance to visit the interior of St Peter’s Basilica in Rome could make me surrender my favourite little embroidery scissors. Tell me, quilters, would you?
