More and More Yarn

This is only a small part of my crochet supplies: Maxi Madame Tricote 100% mercerized cotton yarn: 565 meters – 617 yards in 100 gr. I use it crocheting small flowers, garlands and some collars. The thread is quite soft, pleasant to work with, it holds its shape perfectly, but the most important for me is that it does not dye and does not lose colour when washing, so I recommend everyone to work with this thread. The hook I use with it is Clover NO.4 – 1.25 mm. These hooks are my favourite.

LaceCrochetFinds – New Etsy Shop

So, we reopened our second store. We made this decision because we saw that our delicate lace collars (the product that started our store in the first place) are completely invisible next to the brightly coloured garlands. Now we have a huge marketing job waiting for us to make our store visible to you. First I would like to introduce to you our first items, which were mostly purchased in the past.

Fantasy Sal

As promised, I’d like to present you all completed annual Fantasy Sal. It was my first Sal ever, organized by https://www.lakesideneedlecraft.co.uk/ by Durene Jones Pattern https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DureneJones

This Sal was the first and on the Lakeside Needlecraft site, there was an amazing atmosphere in this group, everyone was enjoying the success of the others. We were getting a part of this Sal once a month and immediately started guessing what the next part would be. We had so much fun stitching the mystical creatures that were designed by Durene Jones. I think I didn’t finish the job for so long because I didn’t want to forget the atmosphere that we had throughout the year. But I was wrong, it’s impossible to forget it and every time I look at this stitching, I smile and remember those wonderful times.

And now – separate characters by month: January Unicorn, February March Phoenix, April Gnomes, May Dragon, June Elf, July Fairy, August Pegasus, September Wizard, October Witch, November Goblin, and December Winter Fairy.

Finally some more fragments from this Sal:

Bullfinches on the Wild Rosemary

This year’s winter is harsh, snowy and frosty, just as it should be in our climate zone. I love this kind of winter, but in February you can already feel spring approaching – the sun is warm, the sky is bright blue and, most importantly, the birds are singing in a very spring-like way. Thus, we have a spring scheme in our shop as well – Bullfinches on the Wild Rosemary in a lovely pink colour. I’d like to show you not only the patteern itself, but its finished picture too.

By the way, we have more Bullfinches patterns at the shop, like these:
