La soffitta del tempo perduto...

....è là , nella mente e nel sogno, dove è possibile recuperare le speranze e le aspettative, dove volere è potere e tutto diviene possibile, dove la fantasia e la creatività non vengono strangolate dai ritmi di una vita frenetica ed il tempo scorre lentamente, dove la mente vola libera senza restrizioni, dove finalmente si è liberi di essere e ci si può rifugiare e prendere un respiro.

The attic of the lost there, in the mind and dreams, where is possible to recover the hopes and the expectations, where what you want is what you can and everything becomes possible, where fantasy and creativity are not strangled from the rhythms of a phrenetic life and time flows slowly, where the mind flyes free with no restrictions, where finally one is free of being and can refuge in and take a breath.

New threads

Have received some new threads for my Stumpwork project: on left side the ones coming from an Ebay seller:
they are silk bouclè, silk chenille and cotton perlè in 3 thickness plus a stranded one.

On right side threads from Stef Francis, overdyed and naturals that I can paint with silk painting colours; have made a test and the result is nice.

I'm still not ready to start and still not sure about the other colours that I will use in this work.

Need time to arrange the whole thing ....

Have made some changes to the pattern shown in previous post, the new one is more balanced I believe.

What I did yesterday ? Have traced the design on silk duchesse and came out very well but....which pattern ? The wrong one !!! I mean the first I did and not the last corrected...aaaarrrrghhhh, so a beautiful peace of silk is to throw away, the pen was a permanent one.

I'm having a bad cold and, for next time, have learned that when you don't feel well is better to stay in bed instead of making delicate embroidery things !
