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.

Lace crochet and tatting (frivolite)

Today it was a Mandala CAL, and I did it! Almost:D I didn’t like last 2 rows so I improvised. And I used cotton… for embroidery and a steel hook,  and I made a pendant:

It is size S-M, maybe I will write the pattern or at least some indications tomorrow night:)

And a doily or center table on acrylic yarn,  50 cm diameter (20 inches), with a buillon stitch flower. I tried a pattern, to see if it is flat, and it isn’t:))

About me

Last night I found this e-mail in my etsy inbox:


How do I get certification that these are not made by slave labor, horrific work environment, or children?

from Kathryn Gower:

So, I want to be clear for everyone.

I am 45 years old, I live in Romania (which is in Europe, EU, last time I checked, anyway, and not in Asia or Africa or wherever else), and I have a son  (he is 24 years old, and he doesn’t crochet, knit, bead or tat;he likes more playing WOW or Star Wars or idk what), and I also have a full time job.

I am on FB since 2006, lol. Maybe I am a newbie in blogging, but I learned to crochet at 8, from my grandmother’s friend. She used to make Romanian lace. I didn’t like it very much. Then I learned to knit and sew (embroidery) at school, I was 10 or 12. For beading and tatting I used youtube. They are great videos there!

All the items I sell are made by me, usually using my pattern, or an adapted pattern. I don’t sell other people work. I just admire it. And I feel free to share what I like and what I find free on internet, mentioning the source, if this is possible. When google gives 1 mill + results for a pattern or item, you better give up to find the original source.

So misses Kathryn Gower, stop judging people, go back to school and try to learn something this time! Maybe some geography and history will help.

And now about sharing something cute:

a free pattern

This is a free pattern, just follow the link, and you will discover a nice blog:) I changed the link to real owner:))

For a beadspread or even a dress, these are some unusual grannies, swirl patterns.

I found this on pinterest here:

along with this one:

Now, I will use one of these to make a shrug, or a bolero, or something. They are too cute…
