Bogáncs/ Thistle Cuff and the story behind (english version below)

Új karkötő született - mivel szorgos munkával és minimális alvással teltek az elmúlt napok (nem, még mindig nem vagyok polip - nincs egyszerre 8 kezem). Ilyenkor van úgy, hogy minden mást félreteszek - és ha jön az ihlet....nincs megállás. A zajban, a pörgésben - a hétköznapok monoton "muszáj megcsinálni" feladatai közepette - van úgy, hogy "elpattan valami" - ilyenkor jelzi a lelkem, hogy ahhoz hogy újra rendben menjenek a hétköznapok - befelé kell fordulnom....és akkor történik valami. Valami - ami vezeti a kezem, összehangolja a gondolataimat az érzéseimet és miközben kérdés, kétség nélkül alakul a mű....a fejem kitisztul, a lelkem megnyugszik és helyreáll a rend. Hát van akinél ez a szauna, vagy egy jó masszázs - de mivel nem vagyok izzadós, és idegenkedem attól, hogy valami idegen kéz tapicskáljon a meztelen hátamon - én így lazítok :)

Aki ismer, tudja, hogy mennyire szeretem Skóciát, és valami mélyről jövő szál köt össze azzal a mesés tájjal - amit minden alkalommal fizikai fájdalom elhagyni. Imádom a hegyeket, a levegő illatát, a hangamezőket, a kelta temetőket....és még rengeteg mindent...igen - a bogáncsot is. Rengeteg kedves emlékem van az ott töltött nyaralásokról.

Érdekes, hogy van egy virág, ami bár tüskés - és számunkra csupán haszontalan gyom, az párszáz mérfölddel arrébb nemzeti jelkép.

Amikor először jártam Dingwallban és a skót felföldön - akkor tudtam meg, hogy a Braveheart című filmet azon a környéken forgatták. Az egyik kedvenc filmem, megunhatatlan, ragyogó alkotás mind a történelmi vonulatot, mind a szerelmi fonalat követve. A szerelem, ami olyan ártatlanul és tisztán kezdődik és a sírig tart. A Bogáncs ebben a filmben az őszinte, végtelen szerelem jelképe. (Igen - pont ez a szúrós gyom.)

Szerettem volna valami tavaszi zöldes-mályvás színű virágosat hímezni - kicsit már perspektívából. 
Elkészült, munkás volt, tetszik - szeretem a Bogáncsot.


New bracelet was made - last days went by with diligent work and less sleep (no I did not became an octopus, have no 8 hands at the same time). Sometimes (just like recently) - when inspiration comes - I put everything else away. In the constant noise, neverending flow of the monotone "must to do" things - it happens that something snaps - just a little snap but reminds me to slow down and take some time to relax. And then it happens - inspiration comes what leads my hands, coordinates my thoughts with my feelings, and a creation is born... it clears my mind, find my inner smile back. Some people sit in a sauna or have a massage, but for me - for I am not that sweaty type and have a definite aversiveness towards strangers touching my bare skin - it is bead embroidery.

The ones who know me knows how much I love Scotland, there is this subconscious string between me and this fascinating land -  I feel physical pain everytime I leave. I love the Bonnie Hills, the air, the mist, the heather fields, celtic graveyards....and lots more....and yes. I love Thistle:) Have bunch of nice memories of each holidays spent there.

Interesting that there is this flower what we consider as a weed, a couple hundred miles away is a national symbol.

When I was in the first time in Dingwall and the Highlands - I got to know that the shootings of the Braveheart Movie were nearby. I love that film - it is brilliant, never gets boring for me both historically and for that love story - the love that starts so innocently and survives death.
Thistle in this film is the symbol of true endless love. Yes indeed - this spiny weed.

Anyhow I planned to make something freshly green with a touch of mauve - something floral - even maybe from a different perspective.
There she is - was "labor-intensive", and I am happy with the result - I love the Thistle.

Gyönyörű lett a bogáncsos karkötőd!! Olyan élethű! Én még nem jártam Skóciában, de osztom a véleményedet, hogy csodás tájak vannak arrafelé. A Rettenthetetlen pedig a legkedvesebb filmem :) Jó, hogy eszembe juttattad, meg is nézem újra (kb 100-adszor)

Ideally, it is recommended to appoint an interior designing company in London which has a good standing in the industry and preferably have an in-house manufacturing team as well.
ll also find that most high quality firms dealing with interior design Las Vegas will ask
for a retainer in order to cover some of the initial costs.
So, the purpose of the office and who is using it
will influence the office design.

Kedves Anna!

Domak Erzsébet (Böbe) vagyok. Írok egy alaptechnikákkal foglalkozó gyöngyfűzős könyvet magyar nyelven. A galériába szeretném összegyűjteni a magyar gyöngyös lányok legjavát.
Szeretnélek megkérni, hogy a Battle of the Beadsmith 2012 pályázatára készített nyakékedet bemutathassam benne. Ha engedélyezed, akkor egy-egy 1-3 MB nagyságú fotóra lenne szükségem hozzá. (A felbontása ha lehetne 300 dpi legyen.)

Várom válaszodat és előre is köszönöm. :-)

elnézést, hogy ezen a fórumon keresztül kerestelek meg ezzel az üggyel kapcsolatban, de nem találtam egyéb elérhetőséget
