Time flies. My parents were visiting for the long May weekend. The weather was lovely. The plants on my balcony are progressing, it's fascinating how quickly they are growing now that it's warmer. I also bought a few herbs and a couple of strawberry plants. Can't wait for the first fruits to be ripe for picking.
|May 1: coral raglan long-sleeve and strawberrry skirt.|
|May 2: strawberry striped raglan long-sleeve and green corduroy Simplicity 2451|
|May 3: torquoise raglan long-sleeve with navy self-drafted pleated skirt|
May 4: coral Lola, paired with an incredibly cool pair of fake-tattoo tights.
|May 5: blue roses McCall's M6011|
Maybe we'll start with a couple that are almost like their English counterparts. For example:
Bluse [blu:zə] : can you guess what that means? Yup, it's blouse.
Or I've got another one:
Garn [Garn] : This sounds similar to yarn, and it's used for thicker types of thread, like embroidery or topstitching thread and sometimes also for thinner types of wool, like you use for crocheting.
Are there any words that you'd especially like to know about?
Hope you're having a lovely May!
