Review

I am extremely happy with this review because it came from New Zealand. We cannot track our parcels from Poland to New Zealand because our Post offices do not sign a propper agreement, so if our customers do not write to us, we aren’t sure that all things are all right. Thank you, Joanne, for your lovely review. We appreciate it very much!

New Garland in Progress

My customers often inspire me to create new things. Like this time, a customer from the USA asked me if I could crochet daffodils bunting with leaves. Why not? Some trials, and here it is. Nine yellow Daffodils with eight double lengthened leaves is what I am working on now.

Shipping

The first shipping 2022 year consisted of three packages: two orders were from the UK and the third one from the USA. The biggest one was from Scotland, Dunblane, a small town situated not far from Stirling. There were three pieces in this parcel – a Poppy, white Daffodil and Christmas Trees buntings. The next order, Flower garland, was from Congleton, a city in southeast Cheshire, located about halfway between Manchester and Stoke. And the last order flew to New York City, there were two chokers, dark red and navy blue were in it. Thank you, girls, so much for supporting my small business!

Shipping

Today I’ve sent yellow daffodils garland to Howick, Auckland, New Zealand for the first time. Even Post office workers noticed: “We were not there yet”. And they asked, how long the registered letter will fly there? What can I answer? – I don’t know. Firstly, it is the Holiday season, secondly – COVID season, thirdly – I haven’t sent any order to New Zealand before. Well, we shall see 🙂 and I hope that the customer will be very patient.

Fall Leaves Bunting

A new Autumn colours garland appears at my shop on Etsy on the 1st of October. Crochet of yellow, orange, first grass green and dark green 100% mercerized cotton yarn. I like these soft colours so much that I decided to add the bunting to my wall decoration. It doesn’t matter that stitched egg relates to Easter. However, it matches all the decor by its colour, in my opinion.

CrochetCabinetCrafts Bestsellers

Our best selling items in CrochetCabinetCrafts are garlands. Today I decided to check which buntings are our bestsellers. So, customers mostly like and buy our Flowers garland – it sold 11 times. The next is Daisy garland – it has eight sales, then Sunflowers bunting – seven sales, and red Poppy bunting sold six times.

Two sales each have a Pumpkin garland and yellow Daffodils bunting, and white Daffodils garland has only one sale.

New Project

I have so many orders, that’s why there is no way to create something new for the shop. Still, I am trying very hard and here is the result of my trials – I will be knitting a modern dahlia garland. Different variations in the shape of the petals are possible – some will be round, others slightly oblong; some will have the middle filled in, others will be empty. And, of course, the colours will be different, based on the threads I have available. It’s all thanks to Tatiana Litke, whose video tutorial I used to make my dahlias.

Pumpkins Garland

It’s the highest time to start making garland for Halloween. A Pumpkin garland has long been in my plans but only now I’ve just managed to start crocheting it. As a rule, I firstly test each new project on a plain yarn from my scraps and only after writing down the pattern I start making it on a suitable yarn. This time I choose the base for my project from one of my favourite designer – Anabelia, whose pumpkin-shaped coasters charmed me:

Of course, I had to adjust the number of different stitches to the thickness of my yarn and the hook. So the first attempt is in the picture, as well as the yarn I ordered for this project. I promise to show you the garland making process as soon as it’s possible.
