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...

another table runner : PLUM

Zilele trecute am terminat un nou table runner. Cu un aer de antichitate, m-a cucerit cu totul...In ultimul timp tot ce termin imi place la nebunie...dar viata isi spune cuvintul si l-am scos la vinzare.
Last days I finished this new table runner. With an antique-ish look, I felt in love with it....Lately I'm in love with all I finish....but life has its tribute so I put it on sale.

Unicat. Dimensiuni : 22 inch x 47 inch ( aprox. 56 cm X 121 cm) Fata : bumbac, umplutura : bumbac, spatele flanel alb. Cusut cu masina, quiltuit cu masina.

a new..."thing"

Pentru ca in saptamina aceasta am vopsit citeva bucatele de material, in 3 culori : turcoaz, magenta si verde, azi s-a nascut dintr-o bucatica din acestea un "obiect" nou :
Because last week I dyed some pieces of fabrics in 3 colours : turcoise, magenta and green, today was born , from a piece of those ,a new..."thing" :
Un pic din tehnica "umbrei" amestecata cu tehnica lui Bonnie McCaffery la care am adaugat frunze ucate de macris si de Poinsettia, fire metalice, bucatele de material lucios si alte maruntisuri.
A little shadow technique and a little Bonnie McCaffery technique then adding some dried leveas of oxalis and poinsettia, metalic threads, scraps of shiny fabric and other stuff.
The back of it.
Materialele inainte de la ora aceasta sunt inca necalcate...:( Pai, mai stii ce idei imi vin ??
The dyed fabrics before ironing....hmm,even now there are not ironed yet. :( Well, could I know what ideeas will I have ?

a new table-runner

Un alt table runner s-a nascut...culori "asezate", cuminti, tocmai bune de pus pe o mobila veche...Spatele este din finet alb, ca sa nu alunece pe masa. Dimensiuni : 1,05m x 0,61 m ( 41 inch x 24 inch)
Another table-runner is born...quiet colours, just good to be set on an old furniture...The backing is of white flannel, just good not to slipp on the table. Dimensions: 1,05m x 0,61 m ( 41" x 24" )

Poza nu e tare grozava , scuze... a fost facuta in mijlocul pare ca e ora potrivita de a-mi termina lucrarile...liniste, stele pe cer si doar gindurile mele....
Sorry for the was made in the middle of the seems that this is the appropriate hour to finish all my works...silence, stars on the sky, and just my thoughts...
Detaliu de quilting.
Quilting detail.

Spatele. Imi place la nebunie cum a iesit!!

The back of it.I love it!!
Si un buchet de flori din gradina mea pentru voi toti.
And a flower bouquet from my garden for all of you my visitors...

pentru prietenii nostri

Pentru ca prietenii ( finii ) nostri implinesc doi ani de la casatorie si totodata pentru ca sunt departe de casa, le-am facut un cadou care sa-i "tina" impreuna ;))
Se spune ca intr-o casatorie trebuie sa inveti sa imparti totul cu jumatatea ta, ei bine quiltul are dimensiunea de 1,50m x 2,0 m (cit pentru o persoana). Asa ca vor trebui sa il imparta sau sa doarma imbratisati sub el...o idee buna, nu ? .

Because our friend are celebrating 2 years of marriage and also because they are far away from home, we made a gift that should "hold" them together ;)).
It says that in marriage you must learn to share everything with your half, well...this quilt has 1,50m x 2,0 m ( as for 1 person). They must share it or sleep hugged under it....a good ideea, isn't it ?
