Iata ca din joaca mea cu inimioarele a iesit ceva mai serios: cineva a vazut ce am lucrat si mi-a cerut sa-i fac o fata de masa mai mare, pe care sa o dea cadou prietenei sale, nascuta pe 14 februarie. Dupa trei zile de munca, iata ce a iesit:

From playing with the little red hearts came something more serious: somebody saw them and asked me to make her a table cloth, which she intended to give to her friend as a gift for her birthday, on the 14th of February. After three days of work, this is the result:

Intre timp, o alta joaca prinde contur: omuletii de zapada. Am avut inspiratia sa mai lucrez unul si a iesit o "femeie de zapada":-))), cu palariuta si mantie din lana, ca pentru o doamna cocheta:

Meanwhile, I continue playing with the little snowmen, only it turned out to be a "snow woman" :-))), with hat and wool coat, as for a real lady:

 Mi-a facut o placere deosebita sa o lucrez :-))) Si mi-am amintit si cel de-al doilea model de snur crosetat pe care il lucram cu mare drag acum ceva ani.

It has been a pleasure to make her :-))) And I also remembered how to make the second  ribbon-laced crochet model, which I was making some years ago.

Dupa cateva ore de munca, iata ce am reusit sa fac azi: un om de zapada crosetat, mic, infrigurat dar zambitor. El va pleca departe de casa si si-a pregatit pachetelul pentru drum: ciocolata. Mmm! :-)

After a few hours of work, this is what I managed to make today: a small crochet-made snowman, frozen but smiling. He will leave the house for a lady who lives far away and so he prepared his food for the trip: chocolate. Yummi! :-)

Mi-am amintit zilele trecute de acest model de snur crosetat, pe care il lucram cu mare placere candva. Si ca atunci, l-am lucrat cu mare bucurie, mai ales ca un nou proiect incepe sa prinda contur in mintea mea (bineinteles ca am un quilt neterminat, bineinteles :-) ). Un quilt pentru masa, pe tonuri de bej cald, cu accente rosii dulci, la care cred ca acest snur se va potrivi de minune. Acum, ca am gasit ideea si snurul, pot spune ca mai am nevoie de putin, "doar trei potcoave si calul" si am rezolvat problema noului quilt! :-))))))))))).

I remembered a few days ago this ribbon-lace crochet model, that I was making with great pleasure in the past. And like in those days, I made it with great joy, given the fact that a new project is growing in my mind (of course I still have an unfinished quilt, of course :-) ). It will be a table cloth, made with warm beige tones, with sweet red accents, and I am sure that this ribbon will fit perfectly. Now that I have found the idea and the ribbon, I need only a few things, "just the other three horseshoes and the horse himself"* and I have the new quilt! :-)))))))

* For those of you who don't know, this is a Romanian expression. When someone has a big and difficult task in front of him and he made just a few steps towards that goal, a lot more remaining to be done, his friends are encouraging him: "well, you wanted to have a horse, you have one horseshoe, you have to do a small thing: just get the other three horseshoes and the horse itself and you're done!"

Azi am avut inspiratia de a lucra inimioare, ca intr-o joaca de copii. Mi-a placut ce a iesit si cred ca voi folosi acest servetel decorativ pe masuta unde dimineata ne bem cafeaua in doi.

Today I was inspired to do little hearts, like in a childish game. I like the result and I think I will use this decorative napkin on the little table where the two of us drink our morning coffee.

S-au stins incet clinchetul argintiu al clopoteilor colindatorilor si zarva nebuna a focului de artificii din noaptea dintre ani. Ca de obicei, o anume melancolie ramane in suflet, caci zilele atat de asteptate intregul an trec atat de repede... Pana sa reinceapa viata obisnuita, ne bucuram de zapada, de decoratiile de Craciun inca prezente si incercam sa deslusim in linistea din adancul sufletului prevestiri pentru anul care a inceput. Cu omul drag alaturi, cu capul copilei pe genunchii mei, privim cu ochii mintii la zilele frumoase pe care le-am trait si creionam visatori, in tuse fine, schita zilelor care vor urma. La multi ani!

The silver sound of the carols singers bells and the crazy fury of the fireworks from the night between the years are gone now. As always, a certain melancholy remains in my soul, for the days so waited the whole year past so quickly... Until the usual reality starts again, we enjoy the snow, the Christmas decorations still in place and we try to understand in the silence of our souls predictions for the new year. With the loved man by my side, with my child's head on my knees, we rewind in our minds the beautiful days we lived and we draw, in thin lines, the plans for the days that are about to come. Happy new year!

Va invit la o cafea! :-)
Please have a coffee! :-)
