Creating this new bunting, I used only pink and red shadows yarn. Two new colours appear in my stash – dusty rose and raspberry.
Our bestseller at CrochetCabinetCrafts was dispatched today morning to Laguna Niguel, CA, USA. It is a colourful bunting that consists of ten flowers and nine leaves units with string, crocheted from 100% mercerized cotton yarn. I have not many orders now, that is why I could take photos of all the packing process using my new stickers, of course 🙂
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.
That was an interesting story with this order. Violet bought a garland from me on August 16 and asked if the bunting would arrive by September 1. I immediately looked up the address and saw that it was New York. For this, I wrote back that it is difficult for me to guarantee something because shipments from Poland take to the U.S. once six days, the other time fourteen days. But taking into consideration that all of them go to New York for customs control, it is possible to assume that she will get the garland by September 1. And I’m still calmly checking the tracking: posted on August 16, sent from Poland on August 18, accepted in the destination country on August 21, released from customs on August 22 (ISC NEW YORK NY (USPS) – I’m already happy, but still silence, total silence and my package does not move. I am anxiously checking the tracking several times a day. Finally, “the item arrived (International Postal System)” on August 30, and therefore “the item was delivered” on August 30. Violet also wrote to me that she already received this garland. I must admit that it cost me some nerves, but fortunately, everything ended well. Thank you, Violet, for your patient and this lovely review!
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.
It’s hard to describe the feeling of joy that comes over you when you receive a new review of your product. You are happy because someone loves what you have created and made with your hands. In this case, the feedback was accompanied by a text message stating that the garland is now decorating the entrance to your customer’s house. And you sit there all happy, looking at a map of the world and imagining this house in Smyrna, Georgia in America and the people who live in it and watch your work every day. And you are convinced once again that you are doing everything right! Lori, thank you for these kind words and Sunday magic mood!
Working on a new daffodils garland.
I’ve devoted a lot of time to create this beautiful spring flower – the daffodil. It is going to be my new garland, not typical because without leaves, crochet only with flowers. I’ve crocheted only one flower as far and am going to create the new bunting this weekend because we have Monday free of work and celebrate Constitution Day. Unfortunately, the weather forecast says that there will be a cold and rainy weekend, so I plan to spend more time with my crocheting.
The most popular item at our Etsy shop CrochetCabinetCrafts is a Flower Garland, that’s why I am working on some new ones.
The garland consisits of a flower, a leaf and is jointed with a thin crochet string like in the picture.
