Palaces and huts


Yesterday and today I spent a lot of time working on the website of a real estate broker. Wanna buy that villa in Turkey? Business is difficult, due to the crisis, banks are not giving credits. But it did not come to a grinding halt as it seems in the USA.

When there is a little time in between, there is art like lino-print: The second picture shows a kind of deconstructed effect from the paint that ran into the gaps, so I pressed the cloth deeply into the gaps. It is the Estonian folk pattern which I like so much and do in rememberance of my ancestors.

Good idea to do something simple like stamping when time allows only that.

I will take that villa!

Wish I could do something crafty at work! I like the pattern you have done.

Apparently people are starting buy houses again here.

More projects - is it a table runner or part of something else?

Ha! You would have enjoyed my stamp carving class this past week. At first I thought this was redwork embroidery till I looked more closely. Love the effect, especially of that bottom picture.

I think our economy is beginning to pick up a bit. We are seeing more homes selling around us.
Yes, I am wondering too: are you making a table runner with your red stamp? I too love the Estonian patterns.
