and yes, you have guessed…

by izabela

…the blanket is almost finished

only (?) weaving loose ends to do

hmm not too bad i think but annoying

and i agree with some of you

that left the comment here that the colors are really pretty

i think i would be very happy with a blanket like that at my place

but this one soon of to new home 🙂

and some nice photos with its progress:

and this poor bird got caught at our home

when we left the door to patio opened

it is really windy here for last two days

like really, like leaves falling from the trees when they just started growing not long ago

like birds being just thrown inside your house suddenly

i mean at least that is what i think has happened

he could fly at home and he was trying to hide everywhere

not letting me see him nor catch him

but in the end

he got his freedom, i hope he is ok

because we saw him flying away…

this loneliness

by izabela

i got this weird crash on nordic bands playing electro-pop and experimental

and indie music

the knife, royksopp, robin

now it is 2011 and i just found lykke li and el perro del mar

no idea why i never noticed them yet


maybe this is how i feel recently

because not everything goes perfectly well in my life

but hey

it is not too bad

and you all people make me happy so much, this year just started,

but i am already booked for three great events

two in just two weeks

and one in march (this one is the most exciting as i never done wedding show

nor something longer than one day)

please read more on my isamo crochet website news

(this is also changing a lot recently – please forgive me that)


watch then my other favorite song

this time from lykke li


and have sneaky peek at my latest necklace design

not finished yet

my creative space… experimenting with crochet

by izabela

for those who know me a little

this will not be any surprise

if you read my blog

or read my old blog

you know how much i love new things

i mean making new things


i made this necklace after playing with dorset buttons

i bought from big blue bed

alix makes those handmade petit dorset buttons

and sells them in her etsy shop

and i had an idea from the day i saw them first time

it is now available in my etsy shop



newest creation

dorset buttons and crochet necklace

look at this and wonder 😉

random photo – storm…

by izabela

do you enjoy taking photos? are you passionate? what are your favorite objects to photograph?

some posts ago i was telling you how much do i want to buy a new camera, as my old – loved fuji finepix broke suddenly,

prepare for a surprise – that is my new purchase, everything happened so quickly that i still cant believe in it, but there it is new baby for me (another one after dog this month)

nikon d90

and one of my favorite objects is nature, especially clouds and sky in general… have a look what i saw couple of days ago from my window



just to warn you, whenever you want to blog about buying new camera (or probably anything) think twice – i received loads of comments spamming me with links to shops where you can get one… yuck

black rose

by izabela

i made this necklace and i really love it, crocheted tiny black flowers with some leaves with a stem

this could look lovely in white or cream (or any color) as an addition to a wedding dress

i am going to make bracelet and earrings too…


do you like it? is that anything you would consider to buy as a wedding jewellery?

maybe i shall add some beads in the middle of the flowers?

would be grateful for any tips

finding time for everything…

by izabela

…i don’t know what has happened, i cannot find time for nothing since back from holidays, just tried this little bit of crochet and still nothing finished

those tiny black crochet pieces are going to become necklaces and i think they will look pretty cool, i am planning to make couple of different colors and flowers

the white flowers are just an idea still growing in my head, but brown shaded earrings are so much my sort of pattern and color that will have to make more 🙂

progress in jewelry making
