Intre timp am facut un nou quilt. Din tafta si brocart...
Din pacate mi-a adus foarte multa tristete in suflet...din motive personale.
Meanwhile I made a whole new quilt, from fancy materials.
Unfortunately it brings a lot of sadness in my soul...personal reasons....

Part of it

hand quilting

Another face of a sweet memory.
Cum afara este o canicula in toata puterea cuvintului ma ascund in fotoliu si cos...toata ziua. Am o fata de perna, cu multa dantela, mostenita de la bunica mea, veche-veche , atit de veche incit , chiar daca o tineam in cutia cu amintiri dragi, a devenit fragila pe alocuri si se rupe. Vroiam sa pastrez cumva amintirea bunicii si totodata sa imi las amprenta pe ea in vreun fel...asa incit am ales cea mai buna bucata din ea, am facut-o sandwich si am inceput sa quiltuiesc manual. Nu e o idee buna ?

As outside is an extremely hot weather, I just hide myself in my favorite armchair and I sew... all the day. I have an old pillow cover from my grandmother, which is so old that even kept in my memories box, it began to ripe all over. I would like to keep over time this sweet memory some way and also to put my fingerprint on, I choose to cut out the best part of it, make a sandwich of and began hand quilting... Isn't it a good ideea??

Inca nu e gata... si va ramine doar ce se vede in poza, deci un bloc micut aprox. 15" x 15"... Din cauza tensionarii materialul gindesc sa adaug cumva la bordura dantela crosetata manual care facea parte din vechea fata de perna.... vom vedea rezultatul...
It's not ready will remain what you see in the picture, just a small block,aprox: 15" x 15". Due to the tensioning, the fabric is really suffering. I'm thinking to add somehow in the border a part of the hand-made lace that belong to the old pillow cover...we'll se the result...
