Crochet Poppies Garland
It seems writing on the blog once a week is a bad idea. Visits declined dramatically. My experiment wasn’t successful. So I decided to post news about my shops frequently, maybe not every day but sometimes a week.
I was crocheting hard all last week to complete my longest poppies garland, and I sent it to the USA, KS, on the 1st of December. The bunting is 180 inches or 4,5 metres long. I hope it is delivered to the customer before Christmas. However, shipping in December is a lottery. Cross my fingers!
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.
My new red hearts Valentine’s Day crochet garland is in CrochetCabinetCrafts now.

My new white Campanula Bellflower bunting is ready.
A new Canterbury Campanula Bellflower is in progress.
Wow! Four orders from our loyal customer and four reviews! Thank you, Linda, for the lovely reviews. We appreciate them very much.
Red Poppies garland was very popular last time, so I get a lot of reviews on it. Thank you, Lucy, for the lovely review. We appreciate it very much.
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.
