Elegant Pincushion

Back to you :). Dupa zile de epuizare; Karina e din ce in ce mai dificila , revendica tot mai multa atentie ceea ce ma dezavantajeaza in munca mea . Ma simt epuizata si as vreau tot mai mult timp sa lucrez; ma uit la rafturile cu materiale care asteapta sa fie lucrate ... la cartile pe care trebuie sa le studiez si ma gandesc de unde timp??? Sincer, ma simt frustrata.:(
After days of exhaustion, Karina is increasingly difficult, claiming more attention which disadvantages me in my work. I feel exhausted and I still want more time to work, I look at the shelves with materials waiting to be worked ... the books I have to study and I think where do I get the time from? Frankly, I feel frustrated .:(

Am reusit sa termin pincushion-ul de o saptamana ,insa, cum spuneam, nu am avut timp nici sa respir prea mult dar sa mai scriu pe blog.
Acum sunt intr-o pauza pe care mi-am impus-o sa pot posta ce am de postat.

I managed to finish the pincushion for a week now, but like I said, I have not had any time to breathe or to write the blog.
Now I am in a break so I can post what I need to post.

Un pincushion lucrat cu material sintetic negru- destul de greu de lucrat- brodat cu cotton crem si aplicatie pe margine de cord romanesc crosetat ( tehnica veche pe care eu de-abia acum am invatat-o ). Pe fetele lui am lucrat simboluri japoneze in punct de shashiko( ador shashiko); ia pe alocuri am cusut perle aurii si argintii. In mijlocul pinchusion-ului am cusut un nasture aramiu , model vintage.
Muchiile le-am brodat in nod portughez.
A pincushion worked with synthetic black; quite difficult to work embroidery with cream cotton and application on the edge of Romanian Crocheted cord (old technique that just now I learned it). On its sides I have worked in the Japanese symbol of shashiko (love shashiko); on some respects I sewed on gold and silver pearls. In the middle of the pinchusion I sewed a vintage model copper button.

The edges were embroided in Portuguese node.

Mie imi place tare mult cum arata; e mai deosebit decat cele din fetru chiar daca emai pretentios.
I like it very much how it looks like, it is more special than the ones made from felt even this one is somewhat pretentious.

Punct de shashiko: un evantai

Dotet shashiko: a fan

Un cocor.. Pe margine romanian cord crosetat

A crane .. On the edge romanian crocheted cord

si pincushion-ul intreg

and the whole pincushion

Mi-a facut placere sa-l lucrez mai ales ca am descoperit, incercand atatea tehnici si moduri de lucru, ca imi place sa lucrez proiecte mici , cu detalii, migaloase si cu mai multe tehnici.
Tot astfel mi-am dat seama de ce nu ma pot apuca de un quilt asa usor...nu ma atrage absolut deloc quiltul traditional. Din toate blocurile de quilt pe care le-am vazut pe quiltgalore si nu numai- cu foarte putine exceptii- nimic nu mi-a placut.
It was nice working on it more because I have discovered, trying many techniques and ways of working, as I like to work small projects, with details, very careful and more techniques. The same way I realized why I can not get a quilt so easy ... I'm not attracted of traditional quilt at all. O
f all the blocks of quilt that I have seen quiltgalore site -and not only with very few exceptions-there was nothing I liked

Sunt aproape convinsa ca munca mea se va concentra mai mult pe aplicatii, croset si mai ales broderia sub toate formele ei.
I'm almost convinced that my work will focus more on applique,crochet and especially embroidery in all its forms.

Poate ca va fi si un quilt dar mai mult ca sigur va fi ori un crazy ori un quilt cu aplice. Si poate numai wall hanging..
Maybe it will be a quilt but most likely will be either a crazy or a
quilt with a fold apply. And maybe just hanging wall ..

Apropo de shashiko...superba lucratura ! ma atrage ca un magnet. Am in lucru o perna care va fi terminata azi cu siguranta lucrata in punct de shashiko. O voi posta zilele urmatoare.

Pana atunci..happy stitching tuturor!

Speaking of shashiko ...I love the stitch! Its attracting me as a magnet.
I work on a pillow which will be finished certainly today,
worked in shashiko stitch.I`ll post it next day.

Untill then...happy stitching to everybody!
