 And here are the flowers in full blossom! We even had two tiny grasshoppers living in the vases. I haven't seen them lately, I think they've migrated!

Angolo del Travestimento

This is one of the costumes I made (adapted from an adult's size) for the school, for their dressing up corner. There is also a Milka cow and a zebra. My Mum made a Doctor's overall. The photos aren't so good, so I'll just post this one!

April Fool's day!

For April Fool's Day a little pool appeared in the kitchen with an enormous Dolphin swimming in it! And some lucky fishing started...

This is the present I made for the occasion:

And this is what it looked like on!

This was just a few days earlier!

Spring is coming...

Spring is coming! It was so warm today Ella and I were outside on the road playing... football!

Patchwork Course

Last Saturday I went to Roberta Sperandio's course, organized by Francesca for Tessilesa. Here are some photos from Francesca's website:

and some more from Roberta's blog:

It was a fantastic experience. I found out that I'm slow cutting, that I like thinking things out, that with the same idea you can come up with the most incredible variety of results, all interesting for one reason or another. I found out that maybe I will buy myself a new sewing machine but first I have to finish all the things I've started!
Roberta was great and she gave me confidence in my choices. A great lesson, a great day.

Roberta's beautiful (and intricate!) work's of art!

Some of our work:

And this is mine:

I'm working on the top "Shangai" blocks, I want to make a quilt with them but I need help deciding how to place them: Shantung or not Shantung?
