Old and new photos

I don't like winter in Milano...The sky remains dark and grey for months, making it difficult to take  photos at home.
And as I'm rather busy with my mother's health problems, I haven't yet found the time to edit and upload the photos of some ancient issues of "Il Ricamo" that are quite interesting as they contain some lovely patterns, such as this collection of "M"s...
I took these photos a few days ago when there were a couple of hours of sunlight, but managed to upload them on my pc only today!
Now it seems we can't expect good weather for some time, but I hope I will catch up as  I would like to add issues more frequently than I'm doing now, I'm going on so slowly!

But today I also played with more modern images, that is photos I took last year while on holiday... An ancient wall in Pompei made of square bricks became with  little elaboration a sort of snake's skin, like this!


As in this period I have so little time to stitch or weave, I find it easier to work at images or smaller works! Things I can work on a few minutes at a time, and save them...(And put them on Etsy if the result is good, or delete them or leave on my computer when I don't like them).
I wish to start a new weaving soon, but warpingthe loom  requires a bit of uninterrupted time, and it's so difficult these days. Anyway I think that all the works on images  somehow will also be useful for weaving too, sooner or later...It's all about experience, I suppose; nothing goes lost!
