véspera de Natal
Christmas Eve

did not fit in the machine…
não coube na máquina…

thirty shoes from 2 to 80 years
trinta sapatos dos 2 aos 80 anos

acho que nunca tive tanto frio no Natal e final de ano como neste de 2017, e parece que ainda vem aí mais frio, por aqui há muita tosse, espirros, lenços de papel e alguma febre – à espera que passe.
o ano de 2017 foi um ano muito diferente dos anteriores – quanto a manualidades foi quase todo dedicado ao croché para recuperar as mãos, comecei com sedas e algodão até descobrir a Yooladesign e o croché com arame – adorei e recuperei mesmo muito mais depressa a força nas mãos – muitas prendas de natal foram feitas com arame – colares, brincos de várias formas e foram um sucesso
nunca apreciei muito fazer croché, embora haja coisas fabulosas, acho que  não vou abandonar o croché com arame mas tenho muitas saudades do bordado
em 2017 só bordei com a Ana para o air embroidey club estando ainda, desde ontem, a acabar o penúltimo bordado de 2017
para 2018 queria aderir a um desafio (adaptado por mim, para mim…) da ritacor  ao qual aderiu a Dahlia  (conheço a ritacor há muito a Dahlia há menos tempo,  até ver, ambas virtualmente – gosto/identifico-me muito com o que e como escrevem)
preciso de desafios e este vai ser o de 2018 – não vai ser a preto e branco (embora adorasse, mas implicaria não gastar restos) vai ser muito feito à mão e máquina o menos possível – e veremos o resultado
tenham um Bom 2018.
I think I never feel so cold at Christmas and the end of the year, like this one 2017, and it seems that it is still colder next days, here are a lot of coughing, sneezing, tissues and some fever – waiting for it to pass.
the year 2017 was a year very different from the previous ones. As for crafts, almost everything was dedicated to crocheting to recover hands, I started with silks and cotton until I discovered Yooladesign and crochet with wire – I loved and recovered much faster the force in the hands – many Christmas gifts were made with wire – necklaces, earrings of various shapes and were a success
I have never really enjoyed crocheting, although there are fabulous things, I do not think I will abandon the crochet with wire but I miss the embroidery
in 2017 I only stitched with Ana for the air embroidey club, and since yesterday I’m still finishing the penultimate embroidery of 2017
for 2018 I wanted to join a challenge (adapted by me, for me …) of ritacor to which Dahlia joined (I’ve known ritacor for a long time Dahlia for less time, virtually both so far – I like/identify myself a lot with what and how they write)
I need challenges and this is going to be 2018 one – it’s not going to be black and white (although I would love it, but will not use my scraps) will be very handmade and machine as little as possible – and we will see the result
have a Good 2018.

  1. I will be interested to watch your progress, as I am not quite sure I understand the challenge.
    Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog – just a note – the link in your comment doesn’t lead to your blog, it takes me to what looks like an old blog/profile, with no blog attached?
    Have a good week,
    xx
