Summer / Autumn 3

Precisamente a 1 de Junho lancei-me a outro desafio feito no blogue da Amina – Stitch Floral – um projeto da Trish Burr, ou seja no nosso chamado ponto matiz. Já tinha comprado à Trish Burr um pequeno desenho e decidi comprar também o seu livro com este projeto. Foi bastante díficil concluí-lo pois comecei a ter problemas nas mãos, mais propriamente nas unhas, muito quebradiças! Não conseguia trabalhar nem com lãs nem com sedas. Com as linhas de algodão DMC não ficaria parada, mas também não foi fácil. Só acabei a 12 de Julho.
Just on 1st June I dared to join another challenge on Amina’s blog – Stitch Floral – a project by Trish Burr, that is needlepainting. I had already bought Trish Burr a small drawing and decided to buy her book with this project as well. It was very difficult to complete it because I began to have problems in my nails, very brittle / crisp! I could not work with either wool or silk. With  threads of cotton DMC I’ll go on working, I thought, but it was not easy too. I finished on 12th of July

8 – two desired books for long

Há muito que descobri, através do Pinterest, o sítio  Alabama Chanin, a escola, a loja, os livros de Natalie Chanin e como estava com o curso da Sue Stone, achei oportuno comprar estes dois livros, através do Book Depository
For long I’ve discovered through Pinterest the Alabama Chanin site, the school, the store, the Natalie Chanin books, and how I was with Sue Stone‘s course, I found it convenient to buy these two books through Book Depository.

E a casa ficou um caos, embora muito pouco trabalho com agulhas e linhas fui vendo livros e tentando organizar projetos para o Natal.
And the house was a mess, though very little work with needles and thread I saw books trying to organize projects for Christmas.

14 – after summer new kits from Luzine Heppel

De regresso do Verão resolvi encomendar um kit da querida Luzine Happel, que vem acompanhado com explicações passo-a-passo minuciosas. Faz um trabalho árduo para manter viva a tradição do bordado Schwalm Whitework. Admiro-a imenso. Luzine está sempre pronta a ajudar qualquer dúvida que se tenha. Vão ver os seus trabalhos, a loja, e sigam o blogue que não se vão arrepender, com toda a certeza.
Returning from Summer I ordered a kit from dear Luzine Happel, which comes with detailed step-by-step explanations. She does hard work to keep the Schwalm Whitework embroidery tradition alive. I admire her immensely. Luzine is always ready to help any questions you may have. You have to see her work, the store, and follow her blog you will not regret, for sure.

Amanhã regresso a casa com as netas e os pais vão lá ter – a ver se é desta vez que começo a trabalhar com agulhas e linhas, embora as mãos ainda não estejam completamente bem.
Também quero dizer que nestas três mensagens tenho muitas ligações a pessoas de quem gosto ou cujo trabalho admiro e quero partilhar com quem me lê. O que recebo é a amizade que é recíproca. Bons trabalhos e bom fim de semana.
Tomorrow I’ll be home with my granddaughters and the parents will come there – hoping this time I start working with needles and threads, although the hands are not yet quiet well.
I also want to say that in these last three messages I have many links to people whom I like and enjoy or whose work I admire and I want to share with those who read me. What I receive is reciprocal friendship. Happy stitching and a great weekend.

  1. Beautiful embroidery, Meri, well done! :-)
    I also have a problem with my nails, so I have to cut them very short to keep them from splitting.
    I have also been looking at Luzine’s instruction with kits, and I am very tempted, but it will have to wait for now. May be Father Christmas will remember ;-)
