there were also other beautiful textiles – hand embroidered drapes, hand painted glass, and linen wall panels to name a few.  craft was such a magnificent part of these rooms, from hand carved ceilings and furniture to egg tempra and mural painting.  really worth the tour.

    You should have stopped by the 18th floor to say hello. I work in the Cathedral! Hope that all is well.

    Jaye :)

  2. wow! Thank you for sharing those photos. We visited the Cathedral during a French club field trip. I wasn’t paying as much attention to spinning then, but I remember being blown away by those rooms. Awesome spot!
