updated header and another Sunday

Dupa cum vedeti am updatat imaginea din header-ul blogului...este o imagine actuala. Gazonul s-a format deja pe parcela din dreapta, copacii au mai crescut in ultimul an ( altii au fost plantati in primavara ) probabil in curind vom avea si un gard verde si o poarta de intrare pe terenul nostru. ;)
Rabdare, totul se face cu rabdare....
As you can see I updated my header a today one. The green-grass on the right lane has finally settled, the trees did grow some in the last year ( others where planted in the spring)...and perhaps soon will have a green fence and a gate, too . ;) 
Patience, with patience everything is finally done ....

Intre timp , asa cum spuneam, toamna se furiseaza incet-incet peste frunze ruginite, cu umbre seducatoare , dar din ce in ce mai reci...
Meanwhile, as I told you, autumn is sneaking slowly everywhere....with rusted leaves, with seductive tree shadows increasingly cool....

Ca in fiecare duminica frumoasa, grill-ul este rasfatul nostru personal...dupa o saptamina de munca.
Cineva ma intimpina : 
As in each sunny and pleasant Sunday, grilling is our treat after a hard working week. 
Someone is greeting me :

si oricit o rog sa imi duca cosul nu face altceva decit ca zimbeste...
and everytime I ask her to carry along my basket she responds just with a smile...

pe cind ajung si eu in pavilion totul este deja pregatit . Love. 
when I finally arrive , inside is everything ready . Love. 

intotdeauna toamna ma farmeca cu umbre si culori, cu arome si sunete....
I'm always charmed by the autumn with her shadows and colours, smells and sounds....

pina cind jumatatea mea grill-uieste
untill my DH grills : 

eu am parte de momente de relaxare...mda, acelasi loc preferat, acelasi catel zimbitor...
I am having some relax moments....yes, in the same favourite place, with the same smiling dog near me....

nu v-am spus eu ca intr-adevar zimbeste ? :) un catel minunat....
didn't I tell you that she is really smiling ? :) wonderful dog...

sunetele paharul meu ;)
the sounds of autumn... in my glass ;)

da, acesta este vinul meu favorit
yes, this is my favourite wine

si in final, aceasta este farfuria mea cu bunatati
and finally, this is my plate filled with goodies

bunatati am spus, da ? 
goodies I said, right ? 

apoi cineva pleaca dupa desert....insotit de altcineva :)) da, e cam departe casa....
then someone left for dessert...accompanied by someone-else :)) yes, the house is quite far away....
spre seara umbrele devin din ce in ce mai nevoie de paturica mea albastra ;) mi-a fost dor de ea, moale si pufoasa....
in the evening the shadows become increasingly cool....I need my fave light blue blanket ;) I missed it ...soft and fluffy....

stau pe sezlong cu nasul in flori pina apune soarele
sitting on the chair with my nose among the flowers

 o mica frumusete delicata si foarte parfumata in seara
a small beauty, delicate with heavy fragrance in the late evening

O zi a trecut...urmeaza alta...Rabdare.
A day is gone...another will follow....Patience.

a beautiful meeting

Simbata a fost o zi fost in Satu-Mare  la o intilnire pe tema crosetat-tricotat. 
Am ajuns pe la ora 12, acasa la Csilla ( in stinga imaginii ) unde am intilnit-o pentru prima data pe Kriszta ( in dreapta imaginii ) care este o maestra in materie de crosetat. 
Pe masa bunatati de mincat ( Csilla ne-a rasfatat cu pogace cu brinza ) si bunatati de citit - reviste de crosetat-tricotat, craft. 
Ne-am cadorisit intre noi cu mici lucrusoare hand-made si apoi minutele au inceput sa treaca foarte repede....
Saturday was a lovely day...I was gone in Satu-Mare at a crochet/knitting meeting.
I arrived at Csilla's ( in the left of picture near little girl Lilla) home around 12 o'clock where I met Kriszta for the first time ( right in the image ) . Kriszta is a master in crocheting. 
Csilla spoiled us with goodies to eat : cheese -cookies , and goodies to read : crochet-knit and craft magazines.
We treated each other with small handmade gifts and after that the minutes started to pass quickly...
Dupa citva timp apare si Hajni ( in mijloc ) , verisoara Csillei. La fel ca si Kriszta, Hajni este o mare pasionata de crosetat.
After a while arrived Hajni ( in the middle ) , a cousin of Csilla. She is also a passionate about crochet.

si am inceput sa ne prezentam citeva dintre lucrarile fiecaruia  
and we started to show and tell our works 

Am invatat totodata cum se unesc anumite piese crosetate intre ele....
Iar cum mie mi-a placut tare mult bluza ce o purta Hajni
I also learned how to join certain crocheted pieces.
And as I do like a lot Hajni's blouse

 am luat modelul ...evident conform secolului in care traim : o imagine digitala ;)
I took the pattern in a very modern way : a digital photography ;)

Lilla - fetita Csillei -  a fost personajul plin de viata al zilei, marea pictorita care nu a vrut sa lase pensula din mina nici macar pentru masa de prinz....Nem si nem ! :)) 
Csilla, fiica-ta are deja drumul asigurat in arta ! 
Lilla - Csilla's little girl - was the joy of the day, the great painter who didn't let the brush down nor for lunch time....No and no
Csilla, your daughter is already set on her artistic way !

Iar acest ghem de lina neagra caruia nu i se vad ochii este Maya, catelul familiei , o bijuterie de catel care cu toata blindetea ei a reusit sa bage in sperieti pina la lacrimi doua fetite dragalase dar obosite  ( fetitele mamicilor prea ocupate cu povesti si risete pe o terasa racoroasa intr-o gradina plina de flori ) 
And this black ball of wool of which you can't see the eyes is Maya, the family dog, a sweet and lovely soul that despite her tenderness achieved to terrify till tears two little sweet girls but tired also ( those too busy talking and laughing on a cool porch in a flower garden mamas girls ) 

Apoi Csilla a rasfatat pe toata lumea pentru masa de prinz cu bunatati la grill ....aceasta va fi si ultima poza pentru ca dupa atita poveste si mincare buna ni s-a facut cam somn....Am primit si tratament rapid impotriva somnului : inghetata si cafea-frappe  .....alte povesti, alte risete apoi spre seara am pornit fiecare spre casa ei .....
Am ajuns acasa cu bine , fericita ca am avut o zi atit de frumoasa. 
Multumesc, Csilla ! 
Then Csilla spoiled everybody with lunch  : grilled goodies. 
This will be the last picture because after so much eating and talking we become sleepy... quickly received the treatment for that : ice-cream and caffe-frappe....following some more stories, more laughters.....late in the evening we leave to our homes each of us....
I arrived at home safe and happy that I had such a wonderful day. 
Thank you , Csilla ! 
.P.S. Imi pare rau ca nu am poze si cu mine sa va arat....poate data viitoare :).
P.S. I'm sorry you can't find me too, in the pictures, I was the only photographer....perhaps next time :)

tired Monday

Starea mea de azi ;)
My mood today ;)

In ultimul timp nu ma odihnesc bine....adorm foarte tirziu , spre dimineata si ma trezesc obosita....gindurile umbla aiurea, obosite si obositoare totodata.
Am descoperit - cu mare bucurie - ca , atunci cind ma joc aiurea cu pensula pe pinze, gindesc ! pe cuvint. Sunt libera si usoara si nu gindesc....e o stare de gol si de lumina ma simt atit de bine :). Culoare dupa culoare si descopar cit de repede s-a "umplut" pinza....:)
Azi am pornit intentionat la mizgalit pinze doar asa pentru a ma elibera de ginduri....folosesc bucati "urite" din alte experimente - vopsirea naturala, sau esecuri din primele incercari de stampilare....
Le intzep -pinzele - , pe toata marginea,  cu ace de gamalie pe o foaie mare de polistiren imbracata in nylon si ...lumea e a mea ! :)

Lately I didn't get a proper sleep...I fell asleep very late - in the morning- and I wake up thoughts are disordered, tired...and tiring , too.
I happily discovered that in those moments when I doodle with paints on fabric I don't think! honestly.
I'm free and lightweight and I'm not thinking at emtpy feeling, a lightened empty feeling...and I feel so good :) Colour after colour and soon discover that the fabric is "full"...
Today I started intentionate to doodle on some fabric just for releasing my thoughts...I use "ugly" pieces of fabric , previously used in other experiments like natural dyeing or stamping and decided as failures.
I pin them on a polystyrene sheet covered in nylon and....I own the world ! :)

dupa ce se usuca, le calc  si le...admir (ha-ha )...   nu conteaza CE iese atita timp cit ma simt BINE.... si aceste doua bucati vor deveni in scurt timp carti postale textile. Mixed-media :).

After drying, I iron them and....admire .LOL.Doesn't matter WHAT results as long as I'm feeling GOOD....these two pieces will become shortly fabric postal cards. Mixed-media. :)

Pentru ca Beverley - prietena mea englezoaica - urmeaza sa plece din Romania , si mai ales pentru ca ii place mov-ul  ;), azi i-am pregatit un mic cadou de ramas-bun....O pernita - o stea paper-pieced dupa metoda Carol Doak - si o fotografie de la ultima noastra intilnire de lucru...moment cind i-am facut  brosa mov care se vede in imagine ;). Am pus fotografia intr-o rama cu doar putin decoupage - flori de lavanda.... Mda, iarasi mov :))

Because Beverley - my english friend - is leaving Romania, and also because she like purple, today I prepared her a small farewell gift. A paper-pieced star ( Carol Doak method ) pillow and a picture of her from our last working-meeting...time when I made her that purple brooch that you see in the picture. I made a painted frame with just a little decoupage - some lavender flowers....Yep, purple again :))

Are sa-mi lipseasca....dar cine stie cind , mai incolo in viata, drumurile noastre se vor intersecta din nou....
I'll miss her....who knows when later in life, our roads will intersect again ......

autumn already ??

Se pare ca in gradina toamna se strecoara pe furis....frunza cu frunza...
It seems that here, in the garden , the autumn is sneaking slowly....leaf by leaf...

La fiecare plimbare prin gradina 
At every garden walk

gasesc sub ciresc din ce in ce mai multe frunze aurii...
I found under the cherry tree more and more golden leaves....

si putin mai incolo, din ce in ce mai multe pere aurii  ;)
and a little far away ,more golden pears day by day....

La prima impresie totul e acelasi verde, luxuriant de bogat, verde adinc....dar parfumul toamnei deja se simte in aer...
At the first glance everything seems the same green, deep green...but autumn perfume is already in the air....

Gata cu trec la primit un cadou - surpriza totala! - din partea Mirunei ocazia  onomasticii mele...:)
 In fiecare lucrusor trimis am gasit gindirea unui artist textil...."ceva" ce poate - cu putina imaginatie si putina munca - sa devina "altceva"...
Mi-ai trimis scinteia in dar , Miruna. Multumesc. 
Enough with the garden stuff....I received a totally surprise parcel, from Miruna ...on my name birthday...:)
In every sent thing  I found the thoughts of an textile artist : something" that can become - with little imagination and little work - "something" else...
You sent me the spark, Miruna. Thank you. 

In ultima saptamina am participat la un curs de decoupage pe sticla la magazinul hobby din orasul vecin. Prietena mea, Noemi, mi-a ghidat primii pasi - si pensula deopotriva :)) -  in aceasta directie...e o tehnica minunata, atit de adictiva !
Evident ca am uitat de poze in entuziasmul inceputului :)) , asa ca ...aici deja sunt spre final, la faza de pouf-uire ;) Si da ! folosesc o pensula de la fardul de obraz :)). Ma pot folosi de tot ce am la indemina, nu ? :))
In the last week I take a course in decopatch on glass at the hobby-shop in the neighbour city. My friend, Noemi, guide my first steps - an my brush, too :)) - in this's a wonderful technique, so addictive !
Obviously that I forgot about making pictures at the beginning due to excitement, so here am I at the pouff-ing stage ;)... yes! with a blush brush :)) I can use anything I have on my disposal, isn't it ? :))

Acestea sunt piesele pe care am lucrat - evident inca nefinalizate la aceasta ora....este foarte multa munca migaloasa, dar e atit de placuta si plina de satisfactii !
And these are the pieces that I've worked on - still unfinished yet at this's a lot of minutious work but it's so pleasant and rewarding !
 Va place ?
