Dear Reader,
I share here what I like and what works for me. If you've been following me, you know that I can change my mind from time to time, and feel free to comment that I'm completely wrong, you may be right. I'm not running a business. I'm not paid and have never received any compensation or facilitation for any review/brand/site here mentioned. In case one day we'll ever meet, I'll be the one offering you a cup of Italian coffee, too.

missing wishes

 I've been outside home, visiting relatives and eating a lot! I missed you tatters, I missed to send you, in time, my best wishes for this new year. Holiday time disappeared and all those little balls in the pictures did the same: they've been given as gifts.
Sono stata a trovare parenti e a mangiare un sacco! Mi siete mancate, e non ho mandato al momento giusto nemmeno gli auguri per il nuovo anno. Il tempo è volato, così come le palline della foto, regalate durante le feste.

Some others are still hanging on my tree, but only for few hours more, because I'm going to store all up till next year.
Alcune sono ancora appese al mio alberello, per poco, visto che tra qualche ora metterò tutto via per il prossimo anno.

I've made over 20 of them, with some tatting I had put on my "hidden box", where I use to put all tatting for which I couldn't decide a destination, or test tatting, or not "perfect" pieces. Sometimes, I forget where was the bad spot and rescue the little boy. That was the case for a lot of them, transformed in balls within a week before Christmas.

Ne ho fatte più di 20, con campioncini che avevo da parte nella mia scatolina, dove di solito metto ciò che faccio senza un particolare motivo o delle prove oppure qualcosa che non mi sembra "perfetto". A volte mi dimentico dove sta lo sbaglio e recupero "il giovanotto". E' successo così per molti campioncini, trasformati in palline giusto una settimana prima di Natale.

In the next picture, you should recognize 3 patterns by Sharon Briggs, from her "Tatted flurries", converted in balls.
Nella figura seguente, dovreste poter riconoscere 3 schemi di Sharon Briggs, presi dal suo libro "Tatted flurries", trasformati in palline.

"Desiderare" in Italian means to desire, and - as a lot of italian words - it comes from Latin, where it meant "to feel that something is missing". I wish you to realize all your wishes, if you feel that something is missing in your life, but I also wish you to find something unexpected and marvelous, as the three Magi, when looking for a king they found God instead.

Desiderare deriva dal Latino "sentire la mancanza di...". Vi auguro di realizzare tutti i vostri desideri, se nella vostra vita sentite la mancanza di qualcosa, ma vi auguro anche di trovare qualcosa di inaspettato e meraviglioso, come i Magi che cercavano un re e invece hanno trovato Dio.

  3. Lovely presents, the baubles. I do like the idea of transforming tatting from your hidden box. Happy New Year, I hope 2014 is a good year for you!
