Am petrecut Sarbatorile Pascale impreuna cu socrii mei si cu un mare grup de rulotisti, intr-o zona frumoasa din Carpati. Am avut vreme excelenta si liniste, am fost inconjurati de mii de pomi infloriti, clopotele din Noaptea de Inviere au creat o atmosfera sacra, am facut o excursie la Vulcanii Noroiosi, intr-un cuvant, a fost o mica vacanta frumoasa, care s-a terminat prea repede :-))).

We spent Easter days with my parents-in-law and with a big group of caravaning passionates in a beautiful Carpathinan area. We had lovely weather and peace, we have been surrounded by thousands of blossomed fruit trees, the Resurrection Bells from a little church created a deep sacred atmosphere, we made a trip to the Mud Volcanoes, in a few words we had a very nice holiday, which ended way too soon :-))).

Sambata si duminica am fost la socrii mei, la casa lor de vacanta, unde ne tinem rulota. Am aerisit, am spalat, am curatat, am sters, pana ce rulota a ajuns sa sclipeasca in razele soarelui :-). Acum suntem gata de prima iesire din acest an si suntem foarte nerabdatori!

Last weekend we were at my parents-in-laws' summer house, where we keep our caravan. We washed and cleaned it until it shined in the sunlight :-) Now we are ready for the first get away this year and we are so anxious about this!

Am facut fotografii superbe in gradina plina de pomi infloriti, iata doar cateva:

We made beautiful pictures in the garden, where the trees are in full blossom:

Ne-am reintalnit cu familia de randunele care isi au cuibul aici:

We meet again with the swallow family that has its nest here: 

Am vazut si un fluture imens, cum n-am mai vazut decat in carti de biologie:

We have also seen an imense butterfly, like we have seen only in biology books:

Doua zile obositoare, dar foarte frumoase!...

Two very busy days, but very beautiful!...

Fac o scurta pauza si va arat ce am lucrat in ultimele zile. Bineinteles, tot croset! :-))) Mai precis, snururi de diverse culori si marimi, care sunt folosite inclusiv in patchwork. Am lucrat pana acum cu bej, rosu inchis, galben deschis si un roz dulce. Am gasit insa si un fir negru de buna calitate, care mi-a dat ceva idei deja ;-). 

I take a short brake and I show you what I made these last few days. Of course, crochet! :-))) I made ribbons of different colors and sizes, ribbons that can be used also in patchwork. I used to work with beige, dark red, light yellow and a sweet pink. I also found a good quality black thread which gave me already some ideas ;-).

Am lucrat si la broderia de pe quilt, dar nu vad pot arata, caci de cate ori incerc sa fotografiez quiltul, camera foto da mesaj de eroare :-(... Pot fotografia orice altceva fara probleme, insa acest quilt nu se lasa fotografiat decat extrem de greu. O fi avand o viata proprie? ;-)

I also worked on the embroidery on my quilt, but I cannot show you anything, because every time I try to take pictures of the quilt, the camera gives an error message :-(... I can take pictures of anything else with no problems whatsoever, but this quilt won't let me photograph it without a big struggle. Might it have a life of its own? ;-)

Se pare ca acolo sus cineva ma iubeste si ma aude :-))), caci am avut parte de cateva zile de munca aproape exclusiv la proiectele incepute si la unele noi totodata. Ma simt extraordinar de bine facand ce imi cere sufletul, fara sa ma tem de greseli (pe care la fac si pe care le si vad!), fara sa ma critic pentru ele, doar bucurandu-ma de ceea ce fac.

Well, it seems that someone up there loves me and hears me :-))), so I got a few days of working almost exclusively on my old as well as on my new projects. I feel great doing what my souls asks me to do, without fear of mistakes (which I do and see also!), without self-blaming for them, just enjoying immensely by doing what I am doing.

 Am cusut acesti ghiocei cu gandul la cineva drag aflat departe ;-).

I have sewn these snowdrops thinking of someone dear from far away ;-).
