late...summer....too much to do

It seems that I just can not keep in line my blogging... it's summer and despite of it I have so much to do ... still no gardening , the drought is awful this year... all of my raised beds are quite like small deserts... the network water is too expensive, we have no rain this means nothing in the garden... still some raspberries dare to produce day after day to my DH delight... apples and hazelnuts... big , red, crunchy hazelnuts... and that's all from the garden ... this year we'll have to buy the plums for the magiun ( plum-jam without sugar ) ...maybe next week-end we'll find some nice ripe plums for sale ...
Inside.... I love to work at night... it cooler, it's silent ( the traffic is almost reduced ) and by the opened window I hear the crickets and some distant sounds.... it's better at night... working hard, as you can see ;) ...a small surprise for dear friends ....

We manage to set up a new pasta recipe ... a friend bring us some Chorizo dulce ( a sweet spanish sausage ) so this is a gorgeous and so yummy dish : fresh cherry tomatoes, chorizo, garlic, basil and parmesan cheese. Too pity that there are only 2 sausages in the pack, lately you can't find here almost anything good.... 

 Now, scrapbooking.... you know , this love will never fade.... no matter how tired I am , I will scrap a little for my pleasure or for others pleasure. This is entitled : "Following a free spirit ".
  I love trying new techniques, I'm quite excited every time I find out about a new one and I put it on practice.

 And for my pleasure : a coloured pencils digistamp card with lots of amazing digistamp from
 I'm looking forward to make a blue one and a pink one and who knows what follows.... dreams, dreams...

And now a little fabric "something " ... a hair accessory :  

Quickly explanations :  the flowers are from quilling technique, very simple rolls and circles with fringes , but the leaves are a little more..  I outlined them on fabric, 

 painted with fabric paints
 added the veins with puff paint and add some more deep with other green-ish colors
 dry them thoroughly until puff paint "explodes" 
 a little montage on a hair comb with ribbon as base , a little hand sewing 
 and ta-daaa : a big hair accessory with faceted crystal beads and all .
 here's on the dummy head : 

And the last thing before closing today's long post, is my newly hairpin crocheted jacket and yet without buttons (can't find anywhere some cream pearl small round romantic buttons.I ask for too much , do I ? :D ) 

So I repeat the title : late... summer....too much to do .... right ? ;) ( and ...psst! this is not all ;) ;) ) 
Until next time, don't forget : love is everything !

  1. Numai minunatii pe aici! Frunzulita Tomnarella, o reteta noua de paste, un "Free spirit" parca adus din Delta Dunarii, un card dragalas, o podoaba extrem de elaborata, de un albastru cicoare si nu in ultimul rand o jacheta eleganta. Inspiratie, nu gluma!
