My biggest ever order left home today to Switzerland. It consists of 7 garlands. Thus, the packaging was a challenge. I used my white boxes for Daffodils, Poppies and Campanula garlands and put four little buntings in one pack. Then I packed them all into a carton, which I got with my birthday gift from my loved daughter (you know, I am a boxes person). It fitted ideally. I hope the customer will be happy with her order.
My bestsellers! Crochet Flowers bunting was sold 20 times, Daisies – 14, Sunflowers – 11, and Poppies – 10 times. Anyway, these garlands are in the shop from the beginning.
Some more words about our bestseller – Daffodils garland 🙂 Thank you, Truth, for the lovely review and a photo, we appreciate it very much!
Not more to do with this project. Cross stitching and backstitch are completed. Only stars and some special stitches left. Then, washing, ironing and framing. I hope I’ll be on time for Christmas.
Finally, my daffodil garland is ready. The season for these flowers is already ending, although they are still blooming in my small garden. It was my yellow daffodils with a dark yellow centre that was my inspiration for making this garland. I love these flowers for their fragility, delicacy, smell and for the fact that they are a symbol of spring, just like tulips, of course. But crochet tulips and connecting them into a garland is quite difficult, although I can’t stop thinking about it and quite possibly I’ll figure out how to do it better. But while I’m working the details out, the daffodils are taking over.
And this is how the garland looks hanging on the wall.

As promised, I’d like to present you all completed annual Fantasy Sal. It was my first Sal ever, organized by https://www.lakesideneedlecraft.co.uk/ by Durene Jones Pattern https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DureneJones
This Sal was the first and on the Lakeside Needlecraft site, there was an amazing atmosphere in this group, everyone was enjoying the success of the others. We were getting a part of this Sal once a month and immediately started guessing what the next part would be. We had so much fun stitching the mystical creatures that were designed by Durene Jones. I think I didn’t finish the job for so long because I didn’t want to forget the atmosphere that we had throughout the year. But I was wrong, it’s impossible to forget it and every time I look at this stitching, I smile and remember those wonderful times.
And now – separate characters by month: January Unicorn, February March Phoenix, April Gnomes, May Dragon, June Elf, July Fairy, August Pegasus, September Wizard, October Witch, November Goblin, and December Winter Fairy.
Finally some more fragments from this Sal:

Christmas gift delivered on time, so I can boast about it. My best and most complicated 2020 year stitching – Dimensions Gold Collection Santa’s Journey Stocking, designed by Peggy Abrams. This was my first Dimensions, I bought the kit on https://www.123stitch.com/ , waited a month before it reached me and stitched it in two months. The kit contains presorted thread, metalic thread, wool yarn , 18 count white Aida, felt, beads, needles (one for stitching and one for beading), and instructions with an alphabet. What is it worth buying an original set for? “What makes a Gold Collection design so special? – An extensive colour palette, stitches (and half stitches) that create texture and depth, and exquisite detail are all hallmarks of the Gold Collection. You create a work of art, and heirloom to enjoy for generations to come.”
