in my home handmade stuff

This is a well known pattern from Hungary.

The middle of a Persian carpet.
I value tremendously the work of
the Persian women
as carpets like this are made
by thousands
of little nuts.

A woolen blanket
made by a Lady
with endless patience.
The little flowers
are crochet one by one
and finally
the many hundreds
are crochet together.

I think it is just amazing
the work involved
patience to make a blanket
like this.

This is also handmade.
A pillow from Germany.

Very cute pattern
of a flowerpot
with flowers
growing from it.
Also German.

An other beauty of the needle and thread.
The entire
surface is needle work.

I made this post on a day when the Sun was shining,
no excitement of a storm today.
It is not Nature Talk, but perhaps
same Ladies in Blogworld
will be interested who are also involved
to make handmade beauties.
A theme like this belongs
in the VAUMAU blog.
Nature Talks is alive and well
untill will Talk to be posted in the right place: soon.:)

Waiting a day before

The sun came up as usual

But something was in the air
as the birds gathered
with noisy discussion

many more birds were just doing the same
talking about what are
they waiting for

Two Blue Jays found some seeds in the snow
and they said
could not care less
because what is coming
is coming
and they laughed!

While the groundhog was listening:
as all of us:birds and bees and humans
we all are waiting for:
the groundhog day
February 2..
He said

ready to come out and stay out
from the stuffy, stinky underground den.
As the story goes:
if he sees his shadow in a bright sunshine
he will go back to sleep for 40 more days! :(

because it is such a miserable day
ice storm watch
while I am writing this post
( can not be worse weather)
winter will be over soon
and he will come out
to stay happily
Spring will come SOON.

(not soon enough)
