Dupa saptamani de crosetat, ma intorc spre cusut / brodat. Ma bate gandul sa brodez pe tot chenarul de margine modelul inceput, dar ma sperie putin volumul de munca, pentru ca am multe blocuri si proiecte incepute si nu ajung sa lucrez cat as vrea. 

After weeks of making crochet ribbons, I turn to sewing / embroidery. I would like to fill the whole margin with this model, but I am a little afraid of the amount of work required. I have many blocks and many projects started and I don't have time to work as much as I would like.

Lumanari si rugaciuni pentru cei plecati din aceasta lume in catastrofalul cutremur urmat de tsunami in Japonia...

Candlelights and prayers for those departed from our world in the catastrophycal earthquake followed by major tsunami in Japan...


O floare a soarelui, simbol al sperantei*, pentru cei care trebuie acum sa faca fata pierderilor si recostructiei, un mesaj din inima!

A beautiful sunflower, symbol of hope*, for those who are struggling to overcome fear, losses and greaf, a message from the heart!



*Pentru cei care nu stiu, dupa ceva timp de la bombardamentul nuclear de la Hiroshima supravietuitorii au gasit si fotografiat o floare a soarelui crescuta in ceea ce a fost candva o gradina. Privita ca un simbol al renasterii, floarea soarelui a fost de atunci plantata in multe gradini japoneze.

*For those of you who don't know, some time after the nuclear bombing at Hiroshima, a beautiful sunflower was discovered grown in what it used to be someone's garden. Since then, it became a symbol of rebirth and it has been planted in many japanese gardens.

Prima zi de primavara din calendar! Chiar daca ninge inca si e foarte frig, primavara trebuie sa fie pe aproape :-))).

The first day of spring according to the calendar! Even if it's still snowing and it's very cold, spring must be here, somewhere :-))).





Azi ne oferim reciproc martisoare si ne dorim zile insorite. Martisorul este creat prin impletirea unui fir alb (iarna) cu un fir rosu (primavara); in mod traditional, se adauga un banut de argint care se agata de cele doua fire, pentru noroc.

Today we offer to each other "martisoare" and we wish we have sunny days. Martisor is created by weaving a white thread (winter) with a red thread (spring); traditionally, a small silver coin was hanged by the woven threads, for luck.
