Crochet drop in sessions

by izabela

Recently I decided to try and offer crochet sessions in our Craft Coop Shop in Maidenhead, you can make something really easy or a little bit more complicated, you can get help with your own project that you are stuck with. Every Wednesday morning from 10:30am to 12:30pm I am there working on my crochet projects.

The choice is for now:

Make cute crochet bow – the bow can be great addition to mittens or a hat or you can make it as hair clip or anything you like – Β£6 per session, materials and all the help included

>Short Fingerless Mittens With A Bow

Make a crochet flower lariat – flower itself can be sewn onto a scarf, a hat or made into a brooch, but we can make a crochet lariat that can play a role of skinny scarf in the colder days – Β£6 per session, all materials and help included.

>PLAYING WITH TOMATO SAUCE...

And for next week, 1st July Wednesday 2015, from 10:30am to 12:30pm, I would like to invite you all to make this useful tea light holder that can be hung in the garden when partying outside in the Summer – Β£10 per session, all materials and help included

new year – a year of the horse

by izabela

i have not wished all you my lovely readers happy new year so here it is, my happy new year post just in time for new year celebrations in chinese spirit

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

many things changed last year that made me not wanting or not finding the time to blog at all, i am going to explain them all soon, but not to bore you in one post i will start with something that is in the same spirit as my whole post

last year i took part in Chinese Whispers Chain campaign

run and organized by dhl and all would be perfect if i only could find the time to do things on time… i have received the lovely bunny from shalini and i had to make something for the next person in the chain anna, we all had to keep up the theme so the thing we made had to be connected with the thing we received.

it was kind of interesting watching how people react to received item and how it inspires them to create their item, so if you have a spare moment go and visit all the creative people and their makes here on the pinterest board created by dhl express.

Shalini – the very creative wire jewellery maker made this pretty (must not say cute) bunny that is gonna be our easter decoration very soon

and what i made after receiving the bunny? you guessed right two bunnies πŸ™‚Β and they went to Anna

new triangular scarves

by izabela

I started making another scarf with triangular motifs and the first one isn’t really finished yet,

but this is me being over excited with the colors play πŸ™‚

whilst i think i know how the completed scarf will look at the beginning of the project

things come out differently sometimes and i need to look for a change in the plan

well this time i think i might need to add something on each end of the scarf to make it more special

if you have any ideas you would like to share, please do

i would love to hear them πŸ™‚

my creative space

by izabela

how are your creative juices working? for me deadlines at the moment

but usually i can never sit sit down doing “nothing” or just watching tv or just sitting in the park

i need to have something in my hands to make because otherwise my brain is attacked by millions of new ideas that i will never be able to do

so making the little crochet mouse for a customer last week made me make more – here they are

my shrug is in the magazine

by izabela

i so missed you and the real blogging thing

i can’t say much what is going on right now because it is all happening so fast

changing form day to day you would get bored if i shared that all ;D

but as i have some really exciting news to share (that should be blogged long time ago)

here it is all:

i have been asked if i don’t mind to appear in the wedding feature in the inside crochet magazine (of course i don’t mind, i would looooooove to πŸ˜€ ) i agreed and the magazine is out and i am sharing yesterday news, but still exciting to me…

my shrug featured in the magazine :)

and that is not all from my very exciting news to share with my best blogging friends and other readers

after meeting lovely Judith from Fringe gallery in london i now can say that you can buy my jewellery there and if you are anywhere near alexandra park road you have to go and visit this gallery, it is probably the nicest place to be, to buy beautiful yarns, fine cotton threads, vintage threads, buttons, trimmings, probably everything you need to keep your textile hobby going and definitely best place to be inspired by textile artists producing textile artwork and jewellery in such a unique way… and if that was not enough – you can also find variety of workshops that can help you learn some new craft techniques

and here you have the photo of the delicate crochet lace earrings in progress – same that can be found at the Fringe gallery

crochet shawl

by izabela

i thought i’d share the project i have started last night

new crochet shawl, perfect for milder cold, like spring, fall or cooler summer days

i am just finishing (still!) two puffs that i have started long time ago

but the cotton yarn i chose is quite heavy so i stop after couple of rows each time

and make something else instead…

anyway i had this beautiful cotton wool blend yarn n the drawer for ages

and decided to start a shawl made out of motifs

motifs are joined as i go to save myself sewing (sewing equals extra work to me so i try to avoid it whenever possible)

new crochet shawl

also i would like to interest you in new royal mail service that i am to try

and it designed to help smaller businesses grow

it is called simple ways to grow

it seems really easy to use so far, it also seems to me that it is quite affordable

and you pay monthly, but you can actually cancel at any time

so to make it more exciting i am gonna use it to invite people to see my jewellery being exhibited at norden farm arts centre

but about all of this soon πŸ™‚

have a look at this beautiful photo taken by me yesterday

when walking to maidenhead to work my shift at the craft coop shop

so dreamy…

and of course my campaign:

who would like to help me to get noticed

it doesn’t have to be big, you can send as little as a Β£1 or $1 and as much as you like
