Today, I would like to show you another side of myself. I like everything that is handmade. I love handmade gifts even if they are useless knick-knacks. I believe that the best presents are the ones we make. I prepared lots of gifts for Christmas. As I gave them all away I cannot show you any photos of my beaded creations. Using beads, I can make jewellery (necklaces, bracelets) and lots of different animal figures, a Santa Claus, snowmen etc. If you are interested, just take a look at this site where you can find lots of bead patterns. These creations are similar to mine.
I decorate our house with crocheted covers, with a patchwork blanket (which Csilla made), with self-made candles, with pressed leaves created into a picture and with tapestries. A tapestry is a picture which is created by sewing different coloured threads onto a piece of material. I would like to show you some of them. Here they are:
You can see Csilla’s work in the last two photos:
Unfortunately I cannot crochet but my dear late mother crocheted several covers, little bells and angels which I like very much. They are valuable and important to me. They hold some nice sentimental memories for me. They remind me of my Mum.
James Zhih-Cheng Wu, it is very kind of you that you missed entries on Friday and on Saturday. Sorry for the silence over two days. I went to Budapest (capital of Hungary) with my husband on Friday. It was another business trip. I really enjoy these times together with my husband because you know, often we stay so busy that it is hard to find time together to just talk. He travels a great deal and when there is a chance to go with him it is one of the small pleasures of life for me. We can talk in the car and listen to our favourite pieces of music together. Unfortunately, we forgot to take the camera with ourselves, so I cannot show you any photos. It's a shame because Budapest is very beautiful at night.
Ana Paula, it was such a pleasure to help you. I am happy for you.
Ana and Naheed, thank you for the link.
Naheed, I liked your riddles. Do you know the riddle written by Einstein? Are you interested in reading it?
Take care! Best wishes,
