Cobalt blue

Para nós portugueses os azulejos estão em toda a parte e fazem parte da nossa vida. Às vezes passo por eles e nem dou conta mas noutras ocasiões prendem o meu olhar e são uma fonte de inspiração . Gosto particularmente dos azulejos do séc. XVII e sobretudo das suas cores azul cobalto. Mesmo nos nossos dias continuam a ser feitos azulejos nesta cor, para deleite do nosso olhar, em padrões inesperados.

For portuguese people tiles are everywhere and are part of our lives. Sometimes I pass and I don’t even see them but in other occasions, they catch my eyes and are a source of inspiration.
I particularly like the XVII century’s tiles in shades of cobalt blue. Even in our days cobalt blue tiles are done to delight our sight with unexpected patterns.
Quando comecei a esta experiência com este mini log cabin não pude deixar de ver estes patches como pequenos azulejos a cobrir a minha mesa de trabalho.

When I began this experience with mini log cabin I couldn’t help to see these little patches as small tiles covering my desk.

Blue and white is one of my favourite colour combinations - your log cabin blocks look so fresh and clean.

Tú estás acostumbrada a ver los azulejos, pero cuando estuve en Portugal me admiré de ver cuántos y qué bellos són, en Lisboa y sobre todo en Sintra.
Me encanta el log cabin que estás haciendo, has acertado muchísimo con los colores y estampados que estás usando, tengo ganas de ver el efecto que harán cuando tengas más bloques hechos.

Lovely! Those tiles were one of the things I loved about Portugal on a brief visit one Winter years ago. I told myself then that i must go back another time when there was better light for photos.
