Hello,my dear friends!
It is really high time to write a serious and long post. There was a lot of crafting in these last two weeks and I had so little time to write….well,to be honest,I wasn’t in the right mood to because I had some tough moments to deal with….nothing serious,just some every day life annoyance….which,in spite of everything,haven’t stopped me from crafting….well,craft became my personal cure for sadness so…. HURRAY!!!!
Where to start….well,let’s talk about sewing!I had a pillow sewing experience and spent a day learning to sew at Rossana’s home!One day my Big man called me and said that we were invited to a birthday party of a friend’s three years old son…. well,as usual….”You already know which present we are going to give them,don’t you,my dear….” Of course, I had no idea what to do !!! For my sake,I was having a downtown walk with Rossana in that moment and we stopped in a U.S. fabric store where I saw some nice pillows….Ross was so kind and offered me her help in making up my idea so I was able to create the following item….
I was very glad that our friends liked the present :) and noticed that my BM is having more and more confidence in my crafting skills….
As you know,I’m always in search of nice items to be used in my every day life and this time I’d like to show you something really sweet….
Nice and so awfully good scented hand made soaps….mmmmmmm…..there was a street market in Berceto two weeks ago….my BM and me went for a walk in village and there was a really beautiful stall appealing to me…full of hand made soaps and run by two nice ladies whose crafting business is called MARYALISA…The nicest thing was to see the two ladies liking my bag and my shawl and me liking their soaps….well,after the exchange of compliments they gave me their leaflet,which I’m jealously keeping, and I gave them my blog address….and of course,I couldn’t leave the stall with no purchase…. :) I was attracted a lot by a little wicker box because I needed a keeper for my sewing and cross stitch needles….so….
Yes…I know….I’m becoming more and more obsessed with these useless things but I can’t help myself,I like them so much indeed….. :P
Yeah,you’ve seen right,I made some progress with my table runner….
There are three more grannies crocheted but this is a project of a slow progress…well,I’m not worried much about it mainly because I understood how to work the fabric and I think that, at the end, it will turn out quite much alike the image I have in my head…I just have to let myself guide by the fabric and the yarn and have to take my time…. :) ….
Is there any sense to write about a jeans trousers mending… well,if you have to deal with a man who always manages to rip them in the most difficult points to mend and you are unable to do it by yourself,then it has…….as usual,I have people around me who are always generous with advices….this time I have to say thanks to my Mum in law…
I know,the mend is quite ugly and very unprofessional but it seems strong which is all that matters to me at the moment…. some machine sewing, some hand sewing and a rag in the inner side…I hope my BM will still wear them for a long time… :P
And now….the last shots of to you well known garment….I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to steal a shot to my BM trying it on yesterday evening but he was already in pants when I asked him to wear it….I have to bring the sweater to my parents in law’s next weekend because I annoyed a lot my Mum in law by asking advices and help and she deserves to see the finished sweater.I’ll try to take some photos then…here are those taken up till now…
I’ll never stop telling that it is thanks to you,fellow bloggers,that I was able to do all that….my passion for crafing grew more and more by reading your great blogs.Thank you so much for being always there and share your life!
