Anyway, I love to use this doily with a lovely folkloric design. Now, I would like to share with you some other memories too.
I quit to work before my daughter's birth and I was at home till she started the school. It was so great that I was together with my daughter as being a full time mother. In that period I tried different new hobbies. One of them was glass painting. When she was sleeping, I was trying new things at my small hobby room. In those years I was subscribing "Anna" magazine, its each issue was full of marvelous ideas. I still keep them, they are super sources for a crafter needs. Unfortunately, it is an uncontinue magazine now. As far as I know, its only "crocheting" is available. I was making wall hangers for my daughter's room. This Tirol couple is one of them that I made at least 20 years ago from a pattern of that magazine.
This is another one that I made in the same period, 20 years ago. As you can see, my love for the Tirol couples with the folkloric costumes comes from the past.
I also want to share this snowy scene that was one of my favorite, its pattern was from the mentioned magazine, Anna. It was a different method that I created in those days. I was doing flowers with doughs in those days. I've prepared a light mixture with a special glue, flour and starch and used for the puffy areas and used glass paints to paint all those areas. It was a special glue that I was buying from the warehouse. I think I was much more patient and enthusiastic in those days to try news things to be more creative!
This is another scene but it is unfortunately unfinished!!! There are some details that I must complete. But, I must buy new glass paints. But, I don't know if they work on this pretty old thing or not!
I must keep continue my spring cleaning....Let's me see, what will I find more to share with you???
