Summer crafts, crochet for summer and sales

First, I want to congrats our friends from UK for their vote. Great job, you just managed to shake one of the strongest economy of the world! And you did it by yourselves, nobody to blame for it! Who wins? Putin, obvious (Divide et impera).  So, if you don’t speak Russian yet, start learning. BTW, if you hope to sign another good economic agreement with UE, I’m afraid you’re dreaming.  This happens when you choose a clown as a leader. A clown is fun, looks good on tv, but his role is to entertain, not to lead.(see also Donald Trump).

Now, I have a lot o new goodies to show, so I will make a gallery. If I remember how.

what about some swimsuits?:D

A blue one with waves:

And 2 really pretty knitted tops (#knitting), #top, #cableknit

A rainbow one:

round bolero for summer

il_570xn-992972425_2zmt

As you can see I have a new friend modelling:))

For this one I used a 6.5 mm hook (K/10 1/2) and cotton, Catania works great I think.

For the middle: I used a doily diagrambolero center doily

You leave 2 holes for arms when you reach the distance between shoulders + 1 inch (2-4 cm) – I used 39 chains for S/M size (x2), then 2 rounds V stitch and an pineapple motif edging: (you can pick up any edging, I used the last one)

found on pinterest, obvious. Anyway, it’s a round bolero, or doily bolero, and it’s pretty!

Also I made a sunny dress with 3 cute flowers with buttons:

For the top I used this stitch:

And some block stitch for skirt, repeating spiderweb motif:D Any edge you like, see above. I used simple shells.

I hope you like it!

I have some wips but, I don’t have enough time right now….

Anyway my summer collection looks pretty well (my opinion, anyway:D)

I use a new app for etsy shops which helps you to sell directly on social media. And I have Direct Checkout on Etsy:D

Now let me introduce you my new crafts.

First a freeform vest:

on the back it’s a tree, few spirals and a lot of flowers.

A tatted necklace (needle tatting) which took me a while to accomplish, but pretty happy with it:

#spring colors:)

a blouse/tunic in black and white

the up is made with a really pretty yarn, and soft too.

And now I try to finish some new projects. I will show you only:

Lovely, isn’t it? But it takes a lot of time.

New jewelry and crochet

Happy New Year everyone!

I was so busy crafting that I forgot to post lately. I’m sorry for this. Let’s start with my new bracelets and necklaces. Some are listed on etsy or alittlemarket, some, not yet. I didn’t have time.

I hate when they try to translate your website and/or make “improvements” to help you. Grrrrrr. I hate when I want to post and things look different. This is an amethyst necklace with crystals and fimo beads, gemstones and chips. The second one is a Y-necklace, still amethyst:

il_570xn-904619162_3sj3

this one is already listed in my etsy shop.

And some nice bracelets I made

all made in the last two weeks.

About crochet now. I made a cute circular bolero with long sleeves in shades of grey, purple, pink and white:

this one is listed on my etsy shop. It seems that I can’t link anymore, or I don’t know where because they try to translate in Romanian (just trying, the result is a full bullshit). So, next time maybe I will post in my brand new website… I don’t have a pattern for this bolero. I will make another one to see how it works.

Freeform crochet hats and more

Hi everyone! I didn’t post lately but I worked hard: 2 freeform hats with flowers and spirals, and a skirt, a lattice bracelet and more.

Let me introduce you my hats first:

this one is sold, somewhere in transit. It is a double #freeform #crochet #hat, the back side is dc green.

And the second one, same colors, different shape and flowers:

this one is still available in my etsy shop here. I will double it, I think.

It was really fun to make them. How to do it? Hmm, first decide the color palette and the shape. After these steps, just be crazy, play with yarn, anything is allowed, no more rules. For tips and tricks use any available resource: some free resources are on internet: embellishments on Renate Kirkpatrick’s blog or on Pinterest.

Now my crazy #winter #crochet #skirt:

available here and in my etsy shop.

And a pretty lattice #bracelet, red, obvious, for Christmas:

bracelet-bracelet-joli-en-perles-faux-roug-16521175-bra4-jpg-156d0-0e432_236x236 available on my a little market shop only:here.

About my mittens and some little snowflakes feel free to brows my shops and/or my old posts:) I will be back soon I hope with news!
