Visiting the Polish mountains for the first time, I came to the village of Koniaków in Beskid Śląski mountain range in Silesian, southern Poland. The village is primarily known for its tradition of intricate lace-making, which is more than 150 years old. Koniaków laces are handmade by crocheting cotton thread, using motifs inspired by nature. Lace motifs are worked separately, then connected to form larger pieces. The lace additions began appearing in pillows, shirts, blouses, and tablecloths around 1900 and is still exists today. I visited the Museum of Koniaków Lace then and bought this increadible serviette, because I’m an addicted crocheter interested in various lace crocheting techniques. I think, this serviette will be the best decoration in my house this Christmas.
I crocheted this garland to express my support to all those who are different from most people in my country and are discriminated against for various reasons. The rainbow has always been a symbol of joy and happiness, let’s enjoy it together.
Only the person, who sells online, can understand, how happy I feel, when I get a review on my handmade crochet bookmarks from the USA. This is because nowadays you can’t send your orders from my country overseas with full tracking, just by registered mail, and you have no control over it. Thank you, Karen, for such a nice words :)))
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.
New bunting appears at our shop and this time it was created from Sunflowers. These flowers are slightly modernist, but they still are yellow with a brown centre. I dare say that it was a pleasure to crochet them and now I look at these sunny and bright flowers with the same pleasure. I think they can decorate every house and bring joy to it. There is a mall sun in each of these flowers and it can shine for you both during rainy autumn and cold winter.
Our last order goes to France today. It includes two Irish Rose crochet bookmarks in Lilac and Dust Rose colours and Calico Cat bookmark. I like crocheting Calico cats because every cat comes out different and I can’t repeat the previous one. I’ve heard that Calico’s owners think that these Cats have a sassy but loving, sweet, endearing personalities. It is said that they are warm-hearted, affectionate, and intelligent. When ordering this bookmark from me, customers usually write that no other cat can match this breed and that they will never forget their Сalico. I hope this cat’s owner will be satisfied with her order.
Our last 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ review on Shamrock and our new friend from “Mitten” state 🐶🐕 Thank you so much 🙂
Due to Covid-19 I’m on quarantine and working from home. That means I don’t have to go to companies and teach there, I just work on Skype, Messanger, Whatsapp etc. So I have more time for my hobby 🙂 Hence new ideas, for example, for summer bags – ecological, because made of cotton and reusable. I made linen for myself, now I make light turquoise and then there will be powder pink, which is already booked. Unfortunately, the Polish Post Office does not accept shipments abroad and I can only sell these bags on the local market, but I hope, that the situation will change for the better and you will be able to have a new shopping bag for the summer.
