Can you see my late afternoon visitor? Here they call this type of hummingbird a beija-flor (literally = kiss flower). The picture is not very good, but I simply love the short visits he brings to our balcony at the 8th floor of the apartment building. At night, while we are enjoying our dinner, he comes by to have a sip of the sugar drink from the special feeder.
This is a picture of our view we have from the house: over Ibirapuera Park towards the Avenida Paulista. I am very lucky to have this view as most buildings are facing each other and you look up to other sky scrapers which are much higher than our building. A bit like on the first picture. During the day, the sky changes from colour over the park, from blue to grey to dark blue, and it is never the same.
With every stitch we make, our fabric creations change and the intensity of the design becomes stronger. I have been playing with the BSR from my Bernina and I think I worked it out. A few things are still a question mark, but I will found out sooner than later how to work best with this special stitch. Time to pick up my books and study some Portuguese...
Ciao from Brazil, Hilde
