fiori e barattoli

Non ho più scritto niente sulle mini ma ciò non significa che non abbia fatto niente.
Purtroppo però non riesco più ad organizzare il mio tempo che sembra sfuggirmi dalle dita.
Ho notato che altre persone hanno scritto le stesse cose per cui mi preoccupo un po' meno.
I fiori che vedete partono dai magnifici kit di www.fineflowers in miniature che distribuisce quelli di Bonnie Lavish ( grazie a Linda per la dritta). Sono bellissimi e facilissimi da fare, ne ordinerò altri.
Solo la peonia nel cestino è farina del mio sacco ma devo modificare la tecnica, è troppo stretta.Il cesto è il mio primo tentativo di intreccio fatto con quello che avevo in casa, filo di lino per arrosti! 
flowers
I haven't written anything about minis but it does not mean that I have done nothing.
Alas I cannot organize my free time any more and it seems to run through my fingers.
I noticed that someone else wrote about this hence I'm a bit less worried.
The flowers you see come from the magnificent kits of www.fineflowers in miniature which distribuites Bonnie Lavish's kits ( thank you Linda for the hint). They are beautiful and very easy to do.
Only the peony in the basket is mine own but I have to change tecnique, it is far too tight. The basket is my first trial at weaving with what I had at home, that is linen floss for roastbeef!


I barattoli invece sono un lavoretto di parecchio tempo fa. Mercedes mi aveva mandato alcuni dei suoi insieme al più meraviglioso microscopico nido con le uova di pettirosso.
Io li ho riprodotti, sono quelli più cicciotti, e ne ho fatti altri usando come coperchio il tappo per le viti  che è di metallo e rende bene l'idea.


canisters

The canisters are an experiment I have done some time ago. Mercedes sent me some of her canisters together with the teeny tiniest robin nest with eggs inside.
I reproduced them, they are the stouter ones, and I have done others using a metal screewcover as a lid.

Beautiful, Rosanna! I just tried one of Bonnie's flower kits too!! Oh, my, I know about time getting away!!! I think I spend TOO much time on the internet, LOL Hugs :)

Sans ha detto...

Wow, Rosanna! Are you reading my mind or what???? This MUST NOT stop..lol. I just emailed Mercedes about how to make flowers and then you post this link. I am admiring your flowers as I typed this comment. That's how much I like what you have done. Time?? I am also working or pretending to (I am at home and it is 8pm now) right at this moment. Too painful!*shaking head

Those flowers are so pretty. At first, before I read the text, I thought you had posted a real life photo of flowers. I must go check into those Bonnie Lavish kits!
Love the canisters too.

Rosanna, mal comune mezzo gaudio, il tempo sfugge a tutte, lavoro, casa e figli il tempo non basta neanche se ne avessimo 50 ore al giorno. I tuoi fiori sono stupendi anche i barattolini, se fai queste cose in poco tempo chissà se tu ne avessi di più.

Hi Rosanna,
Aren't those kits great?! They look wonderful. I have made a few of them too, with a little bit of my own thrown in.
I think you did a great job on the peony. They are such lovely flowers.
