Prima parte a noului proiect e gata si imi place foarte mult cum a iesit. Insa oricat am incercat, nu am reusit sa prind ca lumea culorile superbe ale materialelor. In realitate, ceva mai putin galben si mai multe nuante de bej. Mai aproape de realitate sunt culorile din poza a doua. 

A fost uimitor sa constat cat de mult mi-am iesit din mana in pauza lunga din vara asta. Dar am lucrat cu aceeasi pasiune dinainte, ceea ce a fost excelent pentru sufletul meu. 

The first part of the table topper is finished and I like it a lot. But no matter how much I tried, I couldn't get the right colors in the picture. In reality, less yellow and a lot more beiges, earthy nuances of all the used colors. Better look at the second picture, the colors are much more real.

It was amazing to see how much of the working habits and even abilities I lost during the long long pause I took in the summer. But I found myself working with the same passion and dedication, which left me tired but happy and fulfilled.

Am vazut padurile, sunt superb colorate! Cu gandul la ele, ma delectez cu materialele prin care n-am mai umblat de ceva vreme... Ce dor mi-a fost de lucru! Idei, idei... O fata de masa in culorile toamnei ar fi o idee buna, ne-am aminti mereu de frumusetile care ne-au incantat sufletele zilele trecute.

We've seen the forest, it's wonderfully colored! I re-emerse myself in fabrics and try different ideas. Oh, how I missed patchwork and all! I am thinking about a table topper in autumn colors; I would be a good way to remember the beauty we've seen a few days ago. Thinking, thinking...

O vara lunga, fierbinte, extrem de complicata si de dificil de traversat... E deja octombrie si as vrea sa pot privi in urma si sa spun "gata, s-a terminat!". Dar nu simt asta...

A long and very hot summer, extremelly complicated and difficult... It's already October and I wish I could look back and say "ok, it's over now!". But I don't feel it's quite over...

toamna in bloc renovat si izolat termic / autumn in newly renovated block of flats
primele atingeri ale toamnei pe salcami / first autumn touches on accacia tree
Aproape de suflet ne raman copacii care invaluie blocurile de pe aleea pe care locuiesc; fara umbra si energia lor ma intreb daca am fi facut fata acestui an...

Close to our hearts for offering us plenty of shadow and a lot of good energy are the wonderful trees that surrounds every block of flats on our alley. Without them I cannot imagine how we would have coped with this year's stress...

Nu am avut parte de vacanta anul acesta, doar cateva foarte scurte iesiri, din care am adunat mici amintiri, mici cadouri primite, mici intamplari frumoase. 

We had no holiday this year, we had only a few short trips, from which we have some small items that will help us remember them, small gifts, lovely moments.
