Am avut parte de un sfarsit de saptamana foarte placut, chiar daca am si lucrat pe branci :-). Iata ceva fotografii dintr-un mic coltisor de rai, gradina socrilor mei.

We had a very nice weekend, even if we had to work a lot :-). Here are some pictures from a small heaven, the garden of my parents-in-law.


Pomi fructiferi plini de rod: visini, nuci, corcodusi, meri / Fruits bearing trees: sour cherries, nuts, a kind of cherries, apples

Teii sunt in floare si umplu aerul cu parfumul lor, e o nebunie ametitoare!

The lime trees are in full bloom and they fill the air with their perfume, it's madness!


Si din nou imi ies in cale crini, albi, grei de parfum si polen.

I have lillies again, white lillies, emanating heavy, amazing perfume.


Atata frumusete si parfum! Sa aveti o noapte inmiresmata!

So much beauty and so much perfume! May you have a beautiful night!

A venit vacanta de vara si fiica mea are in sfarsit timp sa se ocupe de ceva lucru manual. Si-a propus sa faca un quilt si a inceput cu cateva medalioane. Iata-l pe primul, terminat azi:

The summer holiday just started and my beloved daughter has finally time to do some artwork as she long dreamt about. She wants to make a quilt and she started stiching. Here is the first block:
  

Imediat a trecut la al doilea bloc:
She then quickly started the next block:



Eu? Crosetez ca vantul si ca gandul, caci am doua comenzi care asteapta de ceva vreme.
Me? Crochet, baby, crochet! I have two orders and I have no time to waste :-))).


Doar cateva minute de relaxare intr-o seara calda de vara ;-).
Just a few minutes of relaxation in a warm summer night ;-).

La sfarsitul saptamanii trecute am participat la prima mare intalnire a membrilor clubului rulotistilor din acest an. A avut loc la Bran, langa Brasov si a adunat peste 70 de echipaje din toata tara. Din pacate nu am fotografii, caci a plouat aproape continuu de vineri dimineata pana luni dimineata. Nu a baut insa vantul si nici nu a fost prea frig, asa ca plansul monoton a ploii pe rulota ne-a dat somn bun si relaxare. 

This weekend we went to Bran (near Brasov), where we took part in the first annual meeting of our caravaning club. Over 70 caravans = families came there. Unfortunatelly, I don't have pictures, the rain didn't stop from Friday in the morning untill Monday in the morning. However, it was not too cold and the wind didn't blow at all, so the rain falling on our caravan roof made us relax and sleep very well.

Printre altele, am avut ragazul sa lucrez snururi crosetate, din nou, caci cele lucrate s-au vandut foarte bine ;-). 

Among other activities, I had the time to crochet again, the last pack of ribbons being sold very well ;-).


Duminica ne-am hotarat sa iesim totusi din camping si sa hoinarim un pic. Un prieten ne-a chemat la cabana lui si asa am avut parte de o dupa amiaza plina de frumusete si de veselie, cum rar am trait pana azi :-)))))). Asa am reusit sa avem si ceva poze, caci dupa ce am trecut cateva culmi muntoase, am dat de vreme buna.

On Sunday, we decided to get out of the camping and to walk arround Bran. A good friend called and invited us to come to his cabin, so we went and had some of the best moments we ever had. We even made some pictures, because after we left Bran, we had good weather.

Am terminat fata de masa inceputa de ceva vreme. A fost o placere sa o lucrez, este primul meu proiect de patchwork si quilting finalizat si am invatat multe cu aceasta ocazie. Partea de patchwork este realizata partial la masina, partial de mana, iar matlasarea este facuta in totalitate de mana.

I have finished the table runner I started sometime ago. It has been a pleasure to make it, it is my first finished patchwork and quilting project and I have learned a lot doing this. The patchwork is partialy by machine, partialy by hand, the quilting is made entirely by hand.




Sunt si multe stangacii, dar asta e, sunt la inceput! :-)))

There are mistakes also, but hey!, I am a begginer! :-)))
