New Schedule

I have been writing on this blog non-stop for 539 days. The number of readers decreased until it was down to 1 person. I thought posting every day was not worth doing. So, I decided to write once or twice a week, not more often, because it’s not my job, only a hobby, a desire to share something new that I’ve managed to create. That’s why I’ve been silent for most of the week. I hope you’ll forgive me for that. I’ll be mainly a Sunday blogger, hence my first post after the break today.
So, what’s new in shops? I received several orders this week from all three of my shops. One of them in CrochetCabinetCrafts is perhaps particularly noteworthy: a poppy garland flew to the island of Guam. I’ve never shipped there before, so we’ll see how long it takes for USPS to deliver this order. Immediately after the shipment, I received a new order, again for a poppy garland, but this time with a length of 180 inches, which is 4.5 metres. You can see this garland in action in the picture. So far, I have crocheted 30 poppies, have to make 29 leaves, and the bunting will be ready. It’s the biggest one I’ve ever crocheted. https://www.etsy.com/listing/938898472/crochet-poppies-garland-handmade-poppy

There are new orders for a collar and a black Gothik choker at LaceCrochetFinds. I have already crocheted the choker, but I’m not satisfied with it, so I’m finishing the second one. I’ll see which one is better and send it to the customer. Yes, that’s right, I can crochet the order several times if I don’t like something about it. The life of a perfectionist is difficult. I know a thing or two about it. https://www.etsy.com/listing/1027245160/black-crochet-gothic-lace-choker

And finally, a new scheme appeared in the shop StitchersLand: the wreath of wild roses and leaves. I hope you will love this pattern as much as you love all our other projects. https://www.etsy.com/listing/1353506425/rose-wreath-counted-cross-stitch-pattern

And I would like to remind you that there is a 10% Black Friday discount in all my shops.

Prices

I wish I had never written this post. Unfortunately, I have to. This week I received another shipment of threads, which I usually order on Allegro or from private companies. I was shocked to find that the yarn I use for crocheting has gone up by 40% compared to January this year. Sadly, I have no option left, only to increase the price of my finished products least by 20%. The discount for regular customers remains the same as before – 10%. I will raise the prices gradually so that the Etsy platform does not suspend my shops, and you have the chance to buy some of my products at the old price for a while. I apologise for such a weekend message, but I have no control over the thread I use for crocheting prices.

New Review

My longest-ever shipping – a month and 5 days. That is how long it took for the two garlands (Daffodils and Red Poppies) to travel from Poland to Takapuna North Shore City, NI, New Zealand. Thank you for your patience and for this lovely review! We appreciate it very much.
