Crocheting Process

When a customer buys a garland, I try to crochet it as fast as I could. The processing time of an item isn’t long at CrochetCabinetCrafts – from 3 to 5 working days. When a customer buys two garlands, I get panicky. My last order was Poppies and Sunflowers garlands that require a lot of time to crochet. Today I can breathe a sigh of relief – new Poppies garland is ready, and almost all flowers for Sunflower bunting are ready. The working process is here:

House Plants

My mother had many geraniums growing at home. They were in every room except mine because I wasn’t a big fan of those flowers. My mother was obsessed with them, which had the beautiful result of them blooming all the time. I prefered cyclamens, and they bloomed in my room. I even managed to grow new flowers from seeds, and they bloomed too. Perhaps I need to go back to those flowers. But the post isn’t about them – it is about geraniums. Some months ago, I got a blooming geranium that over bloomed and began to wither. Then I remembered how my mother looked after these flowers, so I moved it to a slightly bigger pot and started watering in a stand every day. And there it is – my result, my geraniums have bloomed a second time! Now I’m thinking: maybe I have to grow these flowers? I remember my mother cutting off sprouts, sticking them in water, planting them in the ground after they took roots, and they bloomed again. I’ll have to think about it.

Quaker Ball Sal

All three elements of the first art of the Quaker Ball Sal are ready. I regretted cross-stitching on evenweave. It was a nightmare to count the squares between one and the other hexagon without mistake. I think I got it right, and here’s the result.

Christmas in July

Because my main customers are from the USA and that delivery times before Christmas are doubling if not tripling, I decided to run a Christmas campaign in July. The first item I listed in the shop was a garland of multicoloured stars in the typical Christmas colours of dark green, red and white. The stars bunting made up of 14 stars with string, crocheted from 100% mercerized cotton yarn. The garland is perfect for home decoration all year round, especially on Christmas and New Year celebrations. You can use it in a baby room, kid’s room, bedroom, living room, fireplace, on the wall, as a Christmas table or Christmas tree decoration, for wedding decor or party decor also. The garland is 180 cm (70,8 inches) long, and a single star is 6,5 cm (2,5″) in diameter. There are small loops on the ends of the garland. If you like this idea but in a different length or colour scheme, drop us a message, and we’ll be happy to crochet it for you.

Last Order

I am trying to be as eco friendly as possible. Two of my garlands – sunflowers and poppies from CrochetCabinetcrafts – were dispatched today morning to The Netherlands. I hope the seller will be happy with them and can decorate her retro vans into Bohemian style as she wrote me. It’s time to start the summer holiday!

Quaker Ball

My last SAL in progress. I am stitching it on white Belfast linen 32 count with DMC thread by the key. The colours are not usual for Durene Jones, but the butterfly looks beautiful. That is only one part of the first SAL part, and I enjoy it so much. I took these photos yesterday evening in the sunset, before and after doing backstitch. The last picture is from today’s morning.
