Ponovno pravokotni šiv




..., ki je moj najljubši. Večini je najbolj pri srcu peyote, ki je vsestranski in s katerim se da izdelati na stotine motivov. Možnosti za "risanje" s perlami v pravokotnem šivu so manjše, nadvse noro pa je šivanje v plasteh.
Ko vidim navodila za take izdelke, sem vedno navdušena in se jih lotim. So hitro izdelani, ne maram pa vključevati kristalov ali steklenih perl, če se le da. Ponavadi jih zamenjam za kroglice. Tako sem naredila tudi pri tejle lepotici (RAW Beauty iz Bead and Button) in izgleda prav dobro.
Barve so jesenske, oktobrske, v pozdrav mesecu, ko se letnega časa in tempa že privadim. September, vso dirko in šoke povezane z njim, letos raje ignoriram, mogoče bo tako hitreje mimo.
Lep teden,
Kristina

Ten things on the tenth - september

Summer is unfortunately finished and gone are the days I could spend reading. To say goodbye to that wonderful time here are ten quotes from "The Double Comfort Safari Club" by Alexander McCall Smith. I am a huge fan of his books - they are adorable and I read them again and again.

1. ...women of traditional build were fortunate in having comfortable built-in seating arrangements, but that did not mean that they should draw attention to this fact by wearing trousers.

2.He is called Mighty , and he can look at the ground and tell you about all the animals that have passed that way since, oh, five days ago. He reads the ground like a book. If he saw your footprints he would say, Lady of..."
"Of traditional build, " supplied Mma Ramotswe.
"Exactly. Lady of traditional build. She went by here five hours ago. Heading north."

3. She could not imagine Charlie and Fanwell tracking animals through the bush, although she could just see them tracking cars. Four-door saloon, heading south, third gear. Or, more likely, Car full of girls, going that way, two hours ago.

4. But with Mma Potokwani it was different; her look, as Fanwell had once suggested, could stop the Mafikeng train in its tracks, and probably had.

5. Mma Potokwani made a strange sound (...) It was very like the sound, (...) that a she-elephant makes when warning an intruder off her young.

6.Some kind people may not look kind. They may look severe, or strict, or even bossy, as Mma Potokwani sometimes did. But inside them there was a big dam of kindness, as there is inside so many people, like the great dam to the south of Gaborone, ready to release its healing waters.

7. "She is not a nice woman," muttered Mma Makutsi. "I am worried."
"Nonsense!" said Mma Potokwani, not bothering to lower her voice. "She is a melon. That is all."

8.Mma Potokwani seemed to inflate before their eyes. "I am not asking you, Mma," she said to the aunt. " I am telling you."

9.Mma Potokwani moved forward slowly. It was not really like a person moving, thought Mma Ramotswe; it was more a geological movement, the movement of boulders falling slowly down a slope - unstoppable, remorseless, obeying only the rules of gravity and no other.

10.Mma Ramotswe thought about this. Having the right approach to life was a great gift in this life. (...) Do not complain about your life. Do not blame others for things that you have brought upon yourself. Be content with who you are and where you are, and do what ever you can to bring to others such contentment, and joy, and understanding that you have managed to find yourself.

Enjoy the beautiful words and have a nice weekend.

Zavora


Valjčkasta zapestnica me je sredi poletja čisto ustavila. Na sliki je izgledala tako simpatična, ko sem začela šivati, pa se je izkazalo, da vzame veliko časa. Valjček je narejen hitro, potem pa je treba zavozlati in poskriti oba konca niti. Poleg tega mi je šla na živce še barvna kombinacija, saj k moji ljubi bordeau rdeči v zalogi nisem našla drugega kot roza tone. Tretja nevšečnost so neenakomerne perle.
Na nek dober dan sem jo le končala, jo sestavila drugače, kot je v navodilih in prišila pritiskače namesto pritrjene posebne zaponke. To je rahlo popravilo vtis - poleg tega, da sem se sploh pregrizla do konca.
Upam, da jo bom tudi kaj nosila.
Lepe jesenski konec tedna,
Kristina
