chocolate à chuva
A lot of people have asked me before about the name of this blog, and what does it mean... The reason is very simple, actually. It's the title of a book, one of my *all-time* favourite books, as it happens. It's a children's book, to be more precise, by Portuguese author Alice Vieira, and the last volume of a trilogy. I've read most of her books, and I like them so much that I re-read them very often, but this one is still my absolute favourite since I was about 12. It translates into "chocolate in the rain", which I guess it doesn't make any sense, unless you've read the book, then in which case you know exactly what's it all about (and if you haven't read this yet, grab yourself a large cup of tea and read the 3 books all at once. You won't regret it, I promise)
These quilted bags have been finished for a week now, but I've just been too lazy to photograph them well. And the fact that our appartment looks like sort of a warehouse right now, with all the packing going on really doesn't help with the crafty part. But anyway, these were finished and I like them so much that I'll probably make a few more throughout this winter. Just can't get enough of the patchwork lately. I'm keeping the blue and brown one but the other two will be up for sale soon (I know, shop updates have been irregular to say the least, but I'm trying, I really am). And now, gotta go and pack a few more books ...
