spent a really great few, tho very cold, days in Vienna over the New Year, and managed to fit in some museums and exhibitions of Klimt's fabulous paintings. I love The Kiss of course but actually prefer some of his earlier works, society ladies in fabulous chiffony dresses where you feel you could go and touch actual satin bows they were so beautifully painted. A group activity I heard about last year was for members to pick a favourite painting and interpret it in fabrics. A friend had done Van Gogh sunflowers. I quite fancy having a go at a Klimt. Our group Chair's Challenge for this year might be this so I shall have to get my thinking cap on.
