Bordado velho – linho antigo* / Old embroidery – antique linen*

Há já muitos anos, a arrumar a “casa velha”, encontrámos linho muito velho misturado com os trapos que serviam para tudo e mais alguma coisa. Com esse linho resolvi fazer o meu primeiro bordado (e único até 2005/06), que me lembre.

In times gone by, setting in order the “old house” we found a very very old linen among all sorts of things and rags. I kept it and decided to make my first embroidery (the unique till 2005/06), as far I can remember.



*Este post tornou-se num exercício sobre as palavras velho e antigo. Pergunto-me se passarei o teste. Estejam à vontade para corrigir.

*This post became an exercise about the words old, ancient and antique. I wonder whether I’ll pass the test. Feel at home to correct everything!

  3. Acho que as coisas são conforme o lugar que se lhes dá: o linho era “velho” no meio dos trapos, passou a “antigo” com o bordado… se estivesse estragado, talvez se tivesse mantido “velho”… mas será mesmo assim? O que é velho não tem menos beleza ou valor. Tudo o que fica ‘esquecido’ e vem ter connosco, como se nos esperasse, é belíssimo!
