In kindergarten these days kids do activities related to " La Castanyada " ,
a traditional celebration here Catalonia, although increasingly
there are more people that joins the Halloween ....
The teacher asked the children that wore a clothing like " La Castanyera "
( a woman who sells chestnuts on the street )
and here is the disguise that I sewed for Carlota:
an apron and a handkerchief, essential to be a good
I needed more biege tape and made the top with
biege tape green that I already had at home...
I bought a fabric with squares black and white and linen fabric
and I printed the name of the " chestnut woman "...
It's my first handkerchief and my first apron!
on Tuesday 29th was a year that I had bought the sewing machine ...
Happy birthday, sewing machine!
and I'm glad I made this decision! Gradually I sew something!
and I do not I make as many mistakes like at the beginning!
Monday morning the " woman chestnut " did not want to do photo session ...
But I assure you that Carlota will be the most beautiful
" Castanyera " that ever exist in this world!
I'm suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure!!!!!! yeeeeees!!!!
She likes the apron more than the handkerchief ....
I have not used any pattern. I took the measurements of
my daughter and made a traditional style apron.
I loooove, looooove my sweet " Castanyera"...
Note: I edit before posting, today celebrated " La Castanyada "
in kindergarten. And she came out disguised of " Castanyera ".
And she wore a paperina (wrap made with newspaper) with chestnuts.
When we got home she wanted to show me what was inside the paperina.
Look, look .... I will make a thousand photos on my sweet baby...
What is inside the paperina... ?
Roasted chestnuts! you see how she herself was peeling his chestnuts?
With their own little hands ... by itself ...
All single she ... there's more ...?
I give him the mother and ... I cry because they been finished!
Mother's love ... of course!
And too today after lunch, Carlota was very tired and slept a lot.
On time when she going to school was still sleeping!
and when she woke up it was too late to go to school.
So we have spent the afternoon together.
Carlota liked it so much the apron that I sewed that this afternoon
she also wanted to dress the apron to go shopping!
This give me great joy and make me very happy ...
Before going to the supermarket to do some purchases
we go to afternoon snack at a place that I recommended a friend ....
The place was very nice and very, very sweet...
and the afternoon snack delicious!
Thanks Rosa for the recommendation!
We will repeat! sure!
Today I share with you a song of a Catalan band: Blaumut,
song title is very Catalan too: Pa amb Oli ( Bread with Oil ).
I love this song and I love the video.
And you, you like it?
I wish a good Castanyada for the Catalans
and I wish too a good Halloween to you all!!
Thanks for visit me in my world of wool!
Bona Castanyada a tothom!
