Yesterday a customer asked me if I could crochet orange poppies garland. Of course, I could. However, I decided to check what colours poppies can be. I was shocked: in nature, poppies can be white (Islandic poppies), yellow, orange, red, and purple. I think it’s worth crocheting the garland in each colour so my customer could choose the bunting by their preferences and home decor.
I was finishing and packaging last weekend orders all day long. Tomorrow I’ll send three garlands – yellow daffodils, poppies, and flowers to Batavia, IL; pumpkins garland to Stockbridge, GA; and a tiny burgundy choker to Roswell, GA. All orders are from the USA. Thank you, my dear customers 🙂 You can easily see which box the garlands are in – the box tied with the threads buntings are crochet. That helps me not to get confused when packing the orders into envelopes.
Yesterday I packed and shipped orders to the USA: cities of Arvada, Colorado and Dublin, Virginia and today to Stamford, Lincolnshire, UK. They were sunflowers, daisies and poppies garlands. Business is booming, so I am making more garlands again. The packing looks like the picture in my house. I use several types of stickers: the small white ones are my favourite, I ordered them a lot in the UK for my old shop, and I still use them (I won’t throw them away), and the big brown ecological ones I ordered locally in Poland, I don’t like them very much. As soon as I finish them, I will purchase new ones in the UK with a new shop name. I made The stickers as arrows made by myself and stick the box so that the customer knows how to open it. I am proud of these stickers. What is your opinion about them? And at the end, I always tie the box with the threads that I used for crocheting the garland.
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:
I am so happy to get such a beautiful review on my Poppies garland. I appreciate it very much!
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!
It takes me lots of time to finish new poppies garland, but it is finally ready. It made up of 9 red poppies and 8 green leaves with string, crocheted from 100% mercerized cotton yarn. the garland is perfect fo home decoration all year round.
All the garland is 170 cm (67 inches) long, each poppy is 7,5 cm (3 inches) in diameter and the leaf is 7,5 cm (3 inches) long.
