Nero's Post II (2013-2015)

Washing and new project …


Hi Friends! Laundry has been rolling down from the laundry room these last days … and then came some more washing …


It helpped a lot when knowing that I can share this fun & sun view with you!


These might be the last ones because it has been really hot and the leaves have mostly dried. Still hoping few more to have lots of sweet tomatoes for winter …


And there was also so much paprikas, that they went to the freezer, too …


Lots of aubergines are still outside … would you like some?!


This summer we had for the first time white aubergines and they were fantastic! The taste is almost the same but they became softer when cooked and also the skin is softer and thinner. In fact these are the colours I have had also on my sewing table …


Hmmm, can’t see anything? I hope not, because this is super secret. Sorry but also I have to wait to show it to you.


Flower colour in the evening sun. This time we seem to be more lucky with the Bougainvillea. Perhaps this traditional colour is stronger. Our first was adorable – it had white, soft pink and peach colours!

This is on my table today. New project started with cutting. I don’t have often photos like this because I plan and cut during the process. Often  I don’t know in the beginning what I shall make. This time I try to make something I have first planned … we’ll see how well I can stick to my plan.

Back to work … the more I stay in my attic the quicker you’ll see something new!

PS. Just got great news from Cindy! ‘Fluffy Sheep Quilting’ online fabric shop has a weekend sale – 20% wow wow!!! Look details in Cindy’s blog ‘Fluffy Sheep Quilting’!

  1. Love your posts and photos Teje!I’m curious to see your next work!

  2. All that fruit and vegetables are breathtaking. The colours are beautiful and to think of all the recipes you can make with them….
    I’ve never seen a white aubergine before and looking at the picture at first I thought it was some kind of pumpkin or calabash.
    I hope you have lots of time in your attic, because I can’t wait to see what your secret is!
    Happy weekend.
