Update on my talents

Just thought I'd show you a mismatched array of things I have produced in the last month. First of all, I found a calendar- teatowel at a thrift store and loved the image on it,

Ma gandeam sa va arat o colectie haotica de lucruri pe care le-am produs luna asta. In primul rand, un prosop de bucatarie cu calendar pe care l-am gasit la un second si a carui imagine mi-a placut f mult, I bought it, cut it and turned into a little quilt. I'll hang it in my kitchen as soon as I decide upon the location.
...asa ca l-am cumparat si l-am transformat intr-un quiltuletz. O sa-l pun pe perete in bucatarie, imediat ce ma hotarasc unde.
Secondly, I made a gift for my godmother. I knew I wanted to make some jewellery, but that was the only thing I knew for certain. So after drawing about 10 necklace versions, deciding on the winning one and starting to work on it, the new (and infinitely better) idea came to me, so I dropped what I had begun and started on this:

In al doilea rand, am facut un cadou pentru nasa mea. Stiam ca vreau sa-i fac ceva bijuterie, dar asta era singurul lucru sigur pe care-l stiam. Asa ca, dupa ce am desenat vreo 10 variante de colier si m-am hotarat asupra celei castigatoare, am inceput sa lucrez la ea, cand mi-a venit brusc noua (si infinit mai buna) idee, asa ca am lasat din mana ce lucram si m-am apucat de asta:
I had never done beading before, but with the help of a free book (discovered by Teodora), I managed a final product that I'm very proud of. It took me about 24 hours of solid work but hey, what are nights for? To me it looks Indian, to others it looks Egyptian. What do you think?
Anyway, I'll definitely make more stuff with this technique...but possibly less shiny :)

N-am mai lucrat cu tehnica asta inainte, dar cu ajutorul unei carti gratis (descoperita de Teodora), mi-a reusit un produs final de care sunt foarte mandra. Mi-a luat cam 24 de ore de lucru dar pentru ce sunt noptile? Mie mi se pare ca arata indian, altora li se pare egiptean. Voi ce credeti? Oricum, sigur o sa mai fac chestii cu tehnica asta...probabil mai putin stralucitoare, totusi :)
And last but not least, I made my very first item of clothing! Which took the shape of some very simple wrap-around pants, but I love them and have worn them a lot already. I'll be back with less pathetic pictures; here I had to edit out the messy room behind me.
Si nu in ultimul rand, am facut primul meu obiect de imbracaminte! Care a luat forma unor pantaloni petrecuti foarte simpli, dar pe care ii iombesc si i-am purtat mult deja. O sa revin cu poze mai putin jalnice; aici a trebuit sa tai afara camera dezordonata din spatele meu :)
