A tiny little gift...

... for great friends who are building a yellow cottage.

It didn´t take me long to put pieces together but I know they´ll make it last...


Frozen dog disdains funny cat

Thought Lua might like a new wrap...

... but she was way too cold to give up her favorite one!


It´s been so cold...

... it´s going to snow, people keep saying, with excitement in their voice. It´s going to snow, like it did before, in 1975.

Certainly hope not! We´re not prepared to it and, under the circumnstances,  I´m sure it wouldn´t be fun at all.

I´m lucky I can stay home. I don´t even look outside!

I work at home mainly, so, I´ve just gotten a bit of extra time and work done. Used a few scraps in small, quick and easy sewing projects.

Thought of a colorful towel to warm up the dining room.
It came out like this.

And something very simple to fit an antique silver tray.

I like the contrast!

Simple pleasures
(like a new look to an old tray),
 great joy!


Take a look!

 The sheep are made of old telephones and wires! 
Pay attention to the paws!
The artist´s name is Jean Luc Cronec. 
His work is being shown at the Frankfurt Museum of Communications. 
Quite an insight, isn´t it?

and a new rug for Lua.

Hope it smells good!


The feminine essence

I´ll be soon addressing or should I rather say sharing a series of talks about identifying, recognizing, enhancing, strengthening and living fully our feminine inner strengh and natural gifts.

At this time, immerse in this theme, I think it appropriate to illustrate this post with a picture of my beloved 20 yr old daughter and our Lua, an 11 yr lady daschund, which complete the regnant circle here at home.

Here they are!

Enjoying each other, as usual!

Creating, recicling, matching colours, imagining new shapes and looks, enjoying making and remaking ... all these are strong characteristics of the feminine nature. Most of us just can´t do without it and those who are, for one reason or another, unable to practice it daily must find their own way to put forward their criative urge in order to survive.

One of the most precious feminine characteristic is our sincere disposition for stimulating, encouraging, sharing and making other people grow/make it better/go on trying harder / evolve / echieve a higher level of expertise / help each other express our talent and get our ideals accomplished .This is something very clear and beautiful in the quilter´s blogsphere.

We´re so lucky we can learn from each other!
