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.

Where time flyes ? Five months are gone fast and I have been trying to find something to embroider that doesn't make me so tired like stumpwork or historical in general, something easy and portable that I can bring with me at work too. So have been exploring a bit more in to the canvas work world, well I like it much more than what I tought ! It's an easy stitching, no extrafine threads and needles, nothing is stressing with canvas's so quick ! So I have some little finishes plus another one nearly done: a biscornu, a scissors fob an angel and a Florentine/Bargello boxtop on the way.
I enjoyed working using so many different stitches, brilliant colours and various kinds of threads like cotton, rayon, silk and wool...
I know, it's not like historical or fine embroidery but when one needs a bit of relax this is going to be a good companion and the colours and little embellishments are a feast for the eyes.

Let's see if I'll be able to finish also the Elizabethan panel before the end of the year !
