Boker Tov!


What? Don't you speak "Engbrew"? Neither do I! LOL.

This is my last finishing.I made this towel as a bday gift for a nice friend of mine's mom. They are both Israelis, and I wanted to make something very unique for her, so I asked Maya - my nice friend - for some lessons about her language. She taught me that "Boker Tov" means "Bom Dia".

What? Don't you know what "Bom Dia" means?! Well, that's easy! It's Portuguese, my language, for "Good Morning! =D I thought that would be a nice touch I think she is going to appreciate. Green and yellow are the Brazilian flag's colors, which are also a combo I do like a lot. It's already on the way to her hands, and as she doens't have a blog I am sure she will not see this posting. =P
It's a small "pervertion" of a Tralala! design I like a lot. I changed every color of the sections I picked for this piece, but I do think it's looking quite cheering and mind lifiting.

What do you think? Is she going to like my gift?

I am recently also working on 2 return gifts for a couple girls I love to bits: Pascale B. and Carol S. One of the gifts is already stitched, finished and packed. The other one is being finished.One is all made in red and white, and the other one has shades of green and red and cream. Both has lots of love on them, and I can't let you know anything else! =D
Bye for now!
