90 grams

Cind prietena mea mi-a spus ca imi va trimite mai repede cadoul de ziua mea, am intrebat-o rizind : "-ce e ? "
"- 90 grame " mi-a raspuns....
De cind am cunoscut-o pe Csilla m-a rasfatat an dupa an cu surprize ziua mea, de Craciun , de Paste...asa un suflet mare. Ei bine, dati-mi voie sa va prezint cele 90 grame :D...

When my friend told me that she will send sooner my birthday present I asked her laughing "- what is it ? "
- " 90 grams ", she answered....
I know that since I met her for the first time she spoiled me year after year....birthdays, Christmases, Easters....such a big heart . 
Well, let me introduce you the 90 grams thing  :D...

Ei bine, cred ca inca nu va dati seama despre ce e vorba  ...exceptind ciocolata :))
Well, I think that you don't clearly understand what is it about  - except  the chocolate  :))

Nu-i asa ca e frumoasa ??
lucrata din fir Barka trend  -Limonade cu compozitie  100% bambus o moliciune incredibila si atit de usoara...da, 90 grame, nu v-am spus ? :D
Multumesc , Csilla .
Isn't it a beauty ? 
it is worked in Barka trend - Limonade thread , 100% bamboo ....incredible soft and lighweight. 90 grams, remember ? :D
Thank you , Csilla.

Ei bine, m-am rasfatat putin si singura :D....pentru ca firele mele de brodat aveau un suport "inventat" de mine , pe niste cartoane insirate pe un umeras metalic
Well, I did spoil a little too, by myself....just because all my embroidery threads were hanging in some "invented by me " cardboards stacked on a wire hanger 

Am cumparat o cutie pentru depozitarea lor , marca Prym , precum si o forfecuta metalica Storch ....aveam mare nevoie de ea :D. 
Am o sumedenie de foarfeci, mari si mici, dar mi-am dorit-o nespus pe ACEASTA pentru tatting. ;).

I buyed an embroidery thread box - Prym - and a Storch scissor.....I just needed it :D....
I do have a LOT of scissors but I badly wanted THIS one. For tatting ;).

Acum stau in fata focului si imi aranjez bucuroasa atele in doar o mica problema : nu incap toate intr-o singura cutie :)) 

Now I'm sitting in front of the fire and I'm arranging the threads in my new box. I have just a little problem : they don't fit all in just one :)) 

Si deasemenea astept sa se usuce piesa aceasta....cine a spus ca tatting-ul este usor ?? aici puteti numara aproximativ 280 de ace infipte ....
And I'm also waiting for this piece to dry ....who said that tatting is easy ? you can count here around 280 needles....

Pe data viitoare !
See ya' !

Chocolate Waves

In ultimul timp nu am fost cuminte, m-am dat serios la ciocolata. Sub toate formele : tableta, bomboane, crema....atit de serios incit am transpuns mica mea dragoste subita in :
"Valuri de ciocolata" ....
un alt sal din voal, cu aceleasi 7 benzi plisate pe toata lungimea lui de 2,0m . 
Maro-...ciocolata ;)
il gasiti in magazin

Lately I'm not at all a good girl , I got seriously into chocolate. Any shape : tablet, candy, cream seriously that I transposed my little suddenly love into : 
"Chocolate waves "...
another veil shawl, with the same 7 pleated strips along the lenght . 
Chocolate -...brown. Simple as that . :D

Luna trecuta am participat la un concurs pe forumul Hobby-handmade  cu aceste doua quilturi miniatura . 
Last month I participate in another contest in the Hobby -handmade forum, with these two miniatures quilts.

si am cistigat locul 3 primind aceste minunate piese lucrate de Gaby Erika . Ciocolata a mai ajuns in poza :D
and I won the third place receiving these wonderful pieces worked by GabyErika . The chocolate has not come in the picture :D

Un cadou surpriza din partea sotului meu este aceasta virtelnita, cu o virsta impresionanta de peste 100 ani, virtelnita pe care a lucrat strabunica lui . Mi-a devenit automat foarte draga ....trebuie sa ii fac o baie sanatoasa si sa o pun la lucru....poarta in ea urma anilor multi si a micilor reparatii ...poate o sa-mi spuna o poveste , incet, invirtindu-se....
An unexpected gift form my husband is this thread reel , with an resonable age over 100 years. A reel that belonged to his great-grandmother. Instantly it become very dear to me. I must give it a big scrub and then put it to carries the mark of so many years and of small repairs...maybe it will tell me a story, slowly, spinning....

Acum , de cind cu frigul si cu raceala mea, am nevoie de mincare "de comfort" : o jumatate de pui la cuptor acompaniat de cartofi copti cu mujdei de un pahar de vin alb ;) Chiar comfortabil, nu ? ;)
Now since this cold weather and my cold condition, I need some "comfort" food  : a half of a green farm-chicken grilled on the oven and some baked potatoes with garlic sauce. And a white wine glass ;). Quite comfortable, ha ? ;)

si evident nevoia de un desert la fel de "comfort " ( putina practica inainte de Craciun nu strica niciodata, nu ? ) unde mai pui ca e primul meu cozonac copt in soba cu lemne -de aceea e mai ars :))
and obviously the need of a same "comfort" desert ( a little practice before Christmas doesn't hurt anyone,no ? ) and the important fact is that I bake this roll-cake for the first time in my wood stove...that's why is a little burnt :))

dar gusta nuci si stafide....
but the taste is wonderful ....with walnuts and raisins...

Si cind e frig si nasu-ti curge :D, ce poti sa faci decit sa brodezi mai departe, adincita in fotoliul cald ...
blocul 3 e gata , blocul 4 atacat.
And when it's cold and have a running nose :D, what can one do ? embroider further the SAL project, hidden in the warm armchair...
block 3 ready, block 4 on the go .

La voi cum e, cald ? si ce hobby va place sa faceti cind e frig ? dati-mi niste idei noi....
How's your weather , warm ? and what craft do you mostly like to do when you're chilly ? give me some new ideas...

some of this and some that

Afara e rece si innorat....chiar foarte rece....vreme tocmai buna pentru o ciorba fierbinte de cartofi cu smintina si salata de ceapa cu otet. Foarte gustoasa...
Outside is cloudy and cold....really cold. Just a fine weather for a hot potatoes soup with cream and sour onion salad. Yummy....

Si ceva dulce trebuie, nu ? cornulete umplute cu magiun si simburi de nuca ...ambele productie proprie ;)
Something sweet was also needed, no ? rolls filled with plum jam and nuts ...both from our garden ;)

 coapte, desigur, in soba cu lemne....soba mea fermecata....
the rolls were baked in the wood magic wood stove....

 netavalite prin zahar pentru ca si asa sunt destul de dulci....simple si gustoase ca orice prajitura de casa.
They are simple, un-rolled in powder sugar because they are sweet enough.Simple and tasty as any homemade cookies . 

Ce se poate face cel mai bine in fata focului ? doilea bloc e gata, al treilea acum incepe. Sper ca Mos Craciun sa ma tina minte de fata buna ;)
What can one do better in front of roaring fire ? embroidery. Second block is ready and the third begins. Hopefully Santa will remember me as a good girl ;).

Si daca nu brodez atunci cu siguranta fac tatting.

And if I'm not embroidering then for sure I'm tatting.

si totul miroase superb in casa, datorita Iasomiei de Madagascar care acum infloreste nebuneste....
and everything in my home smells wonderful because of Jasmine of Madagascar that now flourish like crazy...

Pentru mine toamna este frumoasa oricum, insorita sau nu ...e anotimpul meu ;)
For me autumn is nice, sunny or's my season ;).
