|Bedroom, almost, almost there.|
Since I have nothing interesting to show that I've made, and also, I've been home sick for 2 days, which is considerably limiting my intellectual capacities, here are a few pictures of my trip to Romania, this time from a region called Gyimes, which is probably the most beautiful place in the world, in my opinion.
One of my friends from Montreal introduced me to that Gyimes family over 10 years ago now, and I have been trying to go back each time I was in Romania, but it is difficult as this region is very remote and it takes a lot of time to make it there. It has been so interesting to see the kids grow, the technology (cell phones) arrive, and everything evolve from one year to the other. I know 4 generations of that family, and the differences between each of them are huge, as it is the case in the whole country.

|My friend's grandmother traditional house|
|My friends' homemade pickles and alcohol|
|My friends' mother house, where nobody lives (the housing situation in that family is still a mystery to me...)|
|Every single centimetre of this house is covered with woven, embroidered or crocheted textile.|
|More textiles exposed|
|Even the old radio has its own decoration|
|And if you don't have room anymore, just put them in layers!|
|Visiting a relative's house.|
|So many woven pieces.|
Hoping to be back soon, whenever I get something going, or with more pictures of my recent trip!
