Hard at work

You know, there comes a time in a crafter's life when glory is not complete if one does not have a host of house elves to command. Humble, hard-working elves who make tea and help you in your work and say "gladly, master" to every difficult task you throw at them. And a work day at my house would look like that then:
Stiti, vine o vreme in viata unui artizan cand gloria nu e completa daca nu ai si o gasca de elfi de casa la dispozitia ta. Elfi umili si harnici care fac ceai si te ajuta la lucru si spun "cu placere, stapana" la fiecare treaba dificila pe care le-o arunci in carca. Si o zi de lucru la mine acasa ar arata asa:
Oh, but don't let yourself be fooled! Their seriousness was only for the picture. In fact, it looks like I was left with the dregs of elvendom: a bunch of
Ooo, dar nu va lasati pacaliti! Seriozitatea era doar pentru poza! De fapt, se pare ca eu am ramas cu drojdia societatii elfice: un grup de ajutoare
mocking...
batjocoritoare...
...restless...
...neastamparate...
...insubordinate...
...neascultatoare...
...thieving...
...furacioase...
...helpers who, amidst a lot of glasses of wine, cups of tea, cigarette breaks and cake crumbs, managed to help me create this impressive pile of multicoloured limbs, thus making me a bit less panicky about the looming deadline.
...care, printre o multime de pahare de vin, cani cu ceai, pauze de tigara si faramituri de prajitura, au reusit sa ma ajute la facerea acestei gramezi impresionante de membre multicolore, astfel micsorandu-mi un pic panica legata de termenul limita care se apropie.
What deadline, you say? Well, for those of you who don't know, I have been invited to have a doll exhibition at the local puppet theatre on the 10th of December. And that's not all that far away, is it?
Care termen limita, ziceti? Pai, in caz ca nu stiati, am fost invitata sa am o expozitie de papusi la teatrul de papusi local, pe 10 decembrie. Data care nu e chiar asa de departe, asa-i?

So far, I have the abovementioned multicoloured limbs, and these cuties...
Deocamdata, am mai sus mentionatele membre multicolore, si dragutzelele astea...
...for which I used some of that fabric that is too precious to cut up and too pretty not to use (fellow crafters will know the feeling)
...pentru care am folosit din materialele alea care sunt prea pretioase incat sa le tai si prea frumoase incat sa nu le folosesti (stiti sentimentul)
Nice master:
Stapan de treaba:
Bad master:
Stapan rau:
