Printre picaturi, am finalizat un proiect care astepta de multa vreme (click aici ). Citind postarea de atunci, mi-am amintit cat de dificila a fost vara trecuta, asa incat cea din acest an pare sa fi fost chiar suportabila :-))).

Among other things to be done, I managed to finish a project that was long waiting to be done (click here ). Reading again that post made me rememeber how difficult that summer had been, and so this year's summer seems to have been a lot easier than I realized at the time :-))).




Bun, acum la spalat si la calcat frumos :-).

Ok, now to be properly washed and ironed :-).

E gata si a doua casuta, tot in echipa lucrata. E fascinant sa privesti cum copiii iti cresc, se maturizeaza pas cu pas, iar relatia ta cu ei se schimba si ea, incet ;-). 

The second bird house is done, by both my daughter and me. It's fascinating to watch your children growing, getting more mature step by step, while your relationship with them slowly changes ;-).



Inca nu am nici o bordura pentru quiltul de toamna, mai caut...

Still no border for the autumn quilt, still searching for inspiration...

Am terminat prima casuta din cele doua care intra in quiltul de perete pe care il lucrez impreuna cu fiica mea (detalii aici). Tot ce e verde, fara frunze, casuta si chenarul sunt lucrate de fiica mea, florile si frunzele sunt lucrate de mine. Urmeaza a doua casuta. 

I finished the first bird house of the wall hanging quilt I am working on with my daughter (see here). Everything green, except for the leaves, the bird house and the frame are done by my daughter, the flowers and the leaves are my work. The second bird house is in progress.
Cat despre fata de masa in culori de toamna (detalii aici), inca ma framant, caut o bordura care sa-mi placa si, eventual, care sa ma puna sa fac ceva nou ;-). Asa cum am facut si cu broderia din poze: am considerat interesant ca fiica mea sa invete un nou fel de cusatura, drept urmare am renuntat la back stitch (asa cum era prevazut in modelul original) si am invatat-o stem stitch. Iar eu am preferat satin stitch pentru flori si frunze. 

The autumn colored table runner (see here ) is waiting for me to find a border that I like and, hopefully, it will teach me to do something new. I am still searching through my books and magazines for inspiration. I feel it's important to learn new things, and I did the same with my daughter. We gave up the back stitch from the original pattern and I tought her stem stitch and I used satin stitch for leaves and flowers.

Alaltaieri a fost o zi superba! O zi de toamna frumoasa, calda, foarte placuta! M-am lasat inspirata de ea si am legat rapid cateva patrate si dreptunghiuri de panze care aveau aceleasi culori pe care le-am gasit afara, galben solar, marouri si inca ceva verde, exact cum arata acum vegetatia in care blocurile noastre sunt invelite, inca. Pozele sunt departe de a fi reusite insa, caci bateria de la aparatul foto s-a hotarat sa moara un pic, lasandu-mi doar alternativa utilizarii telefonului. Ma bucur foarte mult de fata asta de masa, caci imi lumineaza si imi va lumina casa cand vremea va fi mohorata, asa cum e acum, cu norii gri lipiti acoperisul blocurilor. 

The day before yesterday we had a lovely autumn day, warm, sunny, peacefull day! I let myself inspired and brought together patches of fabrics that had the same lovely colors, warm and light sunny yellow, some browns and some green, just like the gardens of our block of flats have now. The pictures are far for being good, because my camera battery decided it was time for it to die a little, so, until I will replace it, I have no alternative but to use the phone camera. I am so happy for making this table runner, because it's bringing light and warmth to my livingroom and it will continue to do so when the weather will be gloom and the light will be dim, as it is today, when the grey clouds are hanging over the top of the buildings.

Inca un snur crosetat care va impodobi pomul de Craciun. Lucrat printre picaturi, seara, cu gandul la alte si alte modele de decoratiuni. 

Another crochetted ribbon for the Christmas tree, made step by step in the evenings, while thinking of other patterns of decorations.
