DIY

Nekolik navodu DIY neboli " udelej to sam " pro ty, kteri radi tvori. Pomalu (ale jiste) se blizi vanoce a tak treba udelate nekomu radost rucne vyrobenym "sperkem".

Few DIY for all of you who like to make jewelry, and since Christmas is approaching  fast, these would make  nice gifts too.

No a co takhle hackovany venec?  Nechci tady strasit se svatky predcasne ale myslim, ze na vyrobu darku a dekorace uz opravdu zase tolik casu nezbyva :))  Uz vas to take "chyta"? Je to tezke odolat, kdyz obchody jsou plne vanocni vyzdoby a v pulce listopadu vam hraji  koledy!

And what about this crochet wreath? I don't want to push holidays on you so early, but I think that if you are making gifts and decorations yourself, there is no time to spare :)) It is hard to resist, specially when the stores are already decked up for the holidays and playing Christmas songs!

it's snowing......

Prvni snih se letos zacal sypat o tyden driv nez lonskeho roku a musim rict, ze me opravdu prekvapilo, kdyz jsem rano vyhledla z okna a uvidela tu nadilku. Cely den stridave snezi a prsi, takze postupne taje a zase pribyva a neni ho ted odpoledne o moc vic nez rano. Protoze jsem pekne doma v teple, vubec mi to nevadi. Kolovratek alespon nezahali, bytem voni chystana vecere a ja premyslim, co sladkeho dnes upecu az dopiji kavu.....


First snow arrived a week earlier then last year and I have to say that I was surprise, when I woke up this morning and looked out the window. It's snowing and raining all day so the snow is melting and then some more falling down and in the afternoon, there is still the same amount as in the morning. I am cozy at home and don't mind this "white stuff". The spinning wheel is put to work, the house smells of supper being cook and I am contemplating, what to make for dessert after I finish my coffee......


 Vcera vecen jsem mela o zabavu postarano, vzniklo toto pradenko. Je to uzasne videt v co se vam pred ocima meni obarvene kousky vlny a dalsi barevne prekvapeni na vas ceka kdyz z pradenka neco vytvorite.

 I had a blast last night working on this skein. You never know what colors you get after you spin your dyed fleece and  to make something from it is yet another surprise.


A jedna perlicka pro milovniky Tildy. Sikovna Angeline vytvorila tuhle netradicni krasku pomoci hacku.

Lemon tree

Mozna si nekteri z vas jeste pamatuji muj lonsky prispevek o citrovniku. Byl nadherny ale od okamziku co jsem ho donesla domu zacal chradnout. Presazovala jsem, mlzila, prenasela ze skleniku na zahradu a ze zahrady zpet do skleniku ale nakonec stejne uhynu. Dopadl tak i druhy stromek,kterym jsem ho promptne nahradila. Po prozkoumani korenu jsem usoudila, ze byly asi prehnojene. Kulickami vyzivy se to v kvetinaci jen hemzilo. Nevzdala jsem se a to hlavne z toho duvodu, ze prvni stromek byl vlastne darek k narozeninam od meho otce. Netrpelive jsem cekala na jaro,  az se stromky znovu objevi v prodeji. Tentokrat se mu dari, ( krizim prsry ) nejprve byl asi mesic doma, kde jsem steteckem opylovala jeho kvety a kdyz se dostatecne oteplilo, putoval do skleniku. Tam zacal rust doslova pred ocima a male citronky se zacaly nalevat. Vcera jsem ho donesla domu, venku bylo v noci pouze pul stupne nad 0 a protoze sklenik neni vytapeny, stromek precka zimu v dome. Jen se bojim aby ten sok ze stehovani prezil!

You may remember my last year post about Meyer lemon tree. Healthy looking when I first got it, but it deteriorated fast after we brought it home. I moved it from the greenhouse to the garden and then back to the greenhouse again,  but it died and so did the one I replaced it with. It was a birthday gift from my father so I was waiting anxiously for spring, when they arrive in stores again. I kept this one at home for about a month before putting it in the greenhouse, I pollinated the flowers with little brush and the plant grew and thrived before our eyes. I just move it back into the house as the temperature dipped to 0  last night and I am crossing y fingers that the tree will survive the move.

 Me prvni pradeno. Procvicuji si koordinaci a techniku na vlne, kterou jsem dostala spolu s kolovratkem. Nejsou to zrovna barvy, ktere bych normalne volila ale jak se rika "darovanemu koni na zuby nekoukej" :) Na fotce je videt jednoducha pomucka na kterou se prize navine a tak vznikne "pradeno".

My first skein. I am practicing my coordination and technique using some gifted  fiber. No exactly my colors if i had a choice, but it'll do for now. Wooden skein winder ( Niddy Noddy )comes handy too.......



 Dnesni rano mne privitalo slunickem. Prize pripravena na praci, tentokrat v trosku veselejsich barvach. V pozadi je videt tkalcovsky stav, ano vidite dobre, tkalcovsky stav. Reknete ne, kdyz  vam ho nekdo nabizi zdarma.... ale jestly to takhle pujde dal, nebudeme se moct ani najist, protoze nas me hobby pomalu vytlacuje z jidelny.

I was greeted by sunshine this morning. Fiber ready to spin in more cheerful colors. In the back you can see   my loom, I know,  loom ? you may say, but I couldn't say no to it for it was free and looking for a new 
home :)  If I'll continue "collecting" more stuff, we'll soon need a new dining room.


 Jak malo staci k (me) radosti :)
How little you ( I ) need to be happy :)


Na zaver jeste kolaz pro potechu oka. Neptejte se, odkud  fotky jsou, vse stazene z netu, ulozene v mem  "inspirace" file.
And last but not least an inspiration collage. Don't ask me where the images came from,they are in my "inspiration" file now :)

Beautiful Fall......and more spinnig :)

Tento vikend jsem z "detmi" vyrazila na Hornby Island a i kdyz pocasi bylo ryze podzimni, hezky jsme si to uzili.

 I spent this weekend on Hornby Island with my daughter and her family and even though the weather was truly " fally " we had a great time.



 Snidane z prateli v mistni restauraci  Thatch. ( a prepravni lod)
Breakfast with friends at local  Thatch restaurant and pub. ( ferry lounge )


Mak byl v dobre nalade i prez to ze cesta autem a prepravni lodi zabere pul druhe hodiny.
 Mak was in a good mood, despite the drive and two ferry rides.



Pole plne labuti v Merville.
Field full of swans in Merville.



 Muj novy kolovratek Ashford Kiwi. Mozna si pamatujete na tento prispevek. Bohuzel tento " kousek" byl spise starozitnost vhodna pro dekoraci nez pouzitelna k praci.

My new Ashford Kiwi spinning wheel. You may remember this post, unfortunately I found out that this antique piece was more or less good for decoration rather then for actual spinning.





 S pomoci knizek a sledovanim You Tube se pomalu ucim a delam prvni krucky....

Reading books and watching You tube helps me a lot. I am taking first steps and slowly learning.....



Po usiti a odskouseni prvniho paru jsem vcera usila dvoje dalsi flanelove kalhoty na spani pro Makeefa. Miluje Buzze a Woodyho z Příběhu hraček :)

After making sure, that the first pajama pants fit, I made two more pairs yesterday. Soft flannel fabric with Makeefs favorite Toy story character Buzz and Woody :)
