Poppies Bunting

It takes me lots of time to finish new poppies garland, but it is finally ready. It made up of 9 red poppies and 8 green leaves with string, crocheted from 100% mercerized cotton yarn. the garland is perfect fo home decoration all year round.

All the garland is 170 cm (67 inches) long, each poppy is 7,5 cm (3 inches) in diameter and the leaf is 7,5 cm (3 inches) long.

Christmas in July

Recently, I often have had to cancel orders in our shop due to the coronavirus. For example, last week I couldn’t send my collar to Malaysia, because it isn’t possible to send the item to this country by plane, only by ship and it takes about 8 weeks to reach the customer.  On the other side, one customer from Australia surprised me, because she agreed to wait 8 weeks for the Daisy garland to reach her (and I’m really keeping my fingers crossed for this delivery). Fortunately, planes started flying to the USA from Poland and we are able to send orders this destination anyway. Certainly, we are realizing that the delivery will get longer so we starting to put Christmas items in our shops now, in July. There are 2 new items connected to Christmas – crocheted Christmas Stars and Bunting made from them. They are lovely and put us in a festive mood.

There will be more garlands from such king of stars in different colours, but right now I have only yellow ones.

Tablecloth

Some time ago I bought cotton thread for my crocheted collars. The thread was excellent, thin, mercerized in off white colour with a beautiful shade of champagne. More about this collar. Collars crocheted from this thread were popular at our shop. I thought I’d just be happy, but after a while I run out of thread, so I began to look for it on the Internet. Luckily, I found it quite quickly and immediately ordered. Unfortunately, it turned out to be similar, but not the same. Whoever knits or crochets, can understand me easily – the first part of coloured thread ended and the next one was a little different shade. What is more, the new thread was a little bit thicker. In general, it was not suitable for collars and it took me a lot of time to figure out, what to do with it. And then I saw a beautiful motif pattern, which I decided to use for a tablecloth. Thus, this is the first picture of it.

New Photos of an “Old” Collar

For quite a long time nobody paid attention to this collar and only my friends have been wearing it for years and are very satisfied with it. After all, he was bought and flew to South Korea, which surprised me a lot, because definitely closer to this country is Japan, and the Japanese handicraft is so beautiful, that I just dare to look at them and not even dream to try to do something similar. In any case, the collar flew and I’m looking forward to feed back.
