Am terminat primul bloc, va fi blocul central al fetei de perna! Mai am inca patru, fiecare cu cate o initiala a numelor  bunicilor. 

I finished the first block, the one that will be the central piece! Next to be done, four blocks with the initials of my grandparents.

Am cautat prin diverse arhive modele de initiale care sa-mi placa si care sa se potriveasca modelului central. Si am gasit ceva aici.

I've searched through different archives and I found something I like and I think it will be a match to the central piece, here

Am continuat lucrul si, bineinteles, n-am scapat fara sa fie nevoie sa desfac cate ceva :-))). Ce vedeti in dreapta sus, langa firul lasat lung, trebuie desfacut, ceea ce nu-mi place deloc. Asa ca am inceput un alt fragment de model (mijloc, jos), lasand desfacutul pe mai tarziu.

I continued sewing and, of course, I had moments when I had to undo some parts :-))) (for example, the upper right part). I hate undoing! So I began working on another small part of the pattern, leaving the undoing for later.

Si ninge! Prima ninsoare din iarna asta e deja aici! E foarte frig pentru 25 octombrie, vantul bate furios de doua zile, iar ninsoarea a pus capac!

And it's snowing! The first snow of this winter is already here! It's very cold for this time of the year, the wind is furiously blowing for two days now and, on top of everything, it's snowing!

 Ar fi fost un cadou frumos ninsoarea asta, daca ar fi fost linistita (parintii mei sarbatoresc azi nunta de aur!) / This snow could have been a nice gift if it would have been slow and fairy tale like (my parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary!)

A mai trecut o saptamana, tot nu stiu cand. Am reusit insa, spre surpriza mea :-), sa cos cate ceva. Am gasit in ''arhiva cu bunatati" din computer un model foarte frumos, dar pe care nu mai stiu de unde il am, din pacate. Mi s-a parut cel mai potrivit model pentru acea perna decorativa pe care imi doresc s-o termin pana pe 2 decembrie, perna dedicata amintirii bunicilor mei, care ar fi implinit anul acesta 100 de ani. 

Another week passed by, I still don't know when. But to my complete surprise :-), I managed to sew something. Looking for some cross stitch pattern in the "archive of goodies" on my computer, I found this one (sadly, I don't remember where from), perfect for what I have in mind: a decorative pillow which would honor the memory of my grandparents, who would have turned 100 this year, if they would have been among us today.
