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!

The next our Slavic Horoscope animal is Hamster – some of the most loved pets.
The hamster – a creature that sleeps almost nine months a year, but the rest develops a frantic activity, having time to gather bread from the fields and stuff the storerooms to the ceilings.
The Hamster Man is able to work day and night without rest, hastily sip hot coffee and go back to work. On days like these, he can make as much as the Ants-born does in a month. But then the Hamster, exhaled, falls with his tongue sticking out and comes to his senses for a long time, and the Ant works, works, works, and when it comes time to compare the results, it is still unknown who has more time!
Hamsters are loved for their unabashed character, slowness and kindness. They love to rest and they know how to do it, even if the rest – is just lying on the grass in the sun.
For every cross stitcher or embroiderer, the term “hamster” has a special meaning – it makes us “to hamster” our supplies so that we never run out of threads, fabrics, needles, special scissors, kits and other things we need for developing our hobby.
I am excited to present you a new counted cross stich pattern at our shop and this is a Grasshopper!
In a garden, there lived an ant and a grasshopper who were very good friends. It was springtime and the grasshopper was having a lot of fun playing, singing, and dancing in the sun. But the ant was hardworking. It was collecting food grains and storing them in its house. The grasshopper did not understand why the ant was doing so and said, “Hey,’ Ant! Why don’t you come outside and play with me?” The ant replied, “I cannot. I am storing food for the winter when there won’t be anything to eat!” The grasshopper only laughed at the ant and said, “Why are you worrying now? There is plenty of food!” and contin¬ued to play, while the ant worked hard. When winter came, the grasshopper did not find a single grain of food to eat. It began to starve and feel very weak. The grasshopper saw how the hardworking ant had plenty of food to eat and realised its foolishness. (short story)
In Slavic Horoscope Grasshopper – more than anyone does not like to show fatigue, defeat, misfortune. He always sings, he always spreads his wings, flatter himself in the sun. People smile as they look at Grasshoppers, it’s just lying on the grass in the sun. The Grasshopper is very easy to climb, and although the heart trembles with fear of each jump, it still jumps, melts its wings and flies, trembling with fear and delight. In a new place may be waiting for large terrible animals, there may be predatory spiders, but there may be a beautiful meadow with juicy grass, sweet berries and … …other beautiful Grasshoppers, Beetles, Butterflies!
Almost the biggest coward in the world, Grasshopper admits it only to the closest, and for all others, it is a carefree and cheerful creature, which everything is given easily, effortlessly, which easily converges with all creatures in the world, as Grasshoppers, and all.
The Grasshopper is unhurried in the sense that he is unhurried, he grabs one thing and another. He often throws what he has started, but for others, it is surprising that he is able to do much, even often more than others, diligent. And the secret is that the Grasshopper, having thrown a lot of things at halfway, to half of them still comes back and, ashamed of his cowardice, finishes quickly and successfully. And if we take into account that the Grasshopper captures everything quickly, we can say that it was created on a nice day and in good spirits.
A new cross stitch chart at our shop presents Bohemian Waxwings.
These birds are social birds that form large, compact, and noisy groups-sometimes in the thousands – as they scour the landscape looking for fruit during the nonbreeding season. They dangle on flimsy branches to reach fruit or perch side by side in fruiting trees. Bohemian Waxwings live in Northern forests of Eurasia, Canada and Alaska.
I am pleased to present your a new counted cross stitch pattern – dancing cranes with delicate pink peonies in the background.
Cranes are highly symbolic birds in many cultures because of their beauty and spectacular mating dances. Crane mythology is widely spread and can be found in a very differen areas. More about these graceful birds are here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crane_(bird)
