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 🙂

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 🙂

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 😀 ) 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 🙂

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 £1 or $1 and as much as you like

school

by izabela

school is good

I am a LSA which is Learning Support Assistant for a 7 years old boy,

he has autism and he is fantastic kid

there are days that I still don’t know what I am doing

or how to talk to him to encourage him to do do a little bit more work,

but most of the days I get to see him reading, writing, drawing, coloring and having really good fun with other children

other children in the class are also very sweet

I am Mrs Motyl, I say

one little girl, as this word isn’t anything they know,

keeps calling me Mrs Mole (which is so funny, because I know she believes what she’s saying

with all her heart) but I got also another new name: Mrs Metal – given by the boy who probably didn’t know how to call me

so that was the closest thing he could think of

bless 🙂

remember this?

I had a moment and I remembered about my shawls,

I have designed it few years ago

and forgot to make any last year, but found amazing photos of the matching set

made for custom order some time ago

so as a treat I thought I could offer them again as a custom make

in my online shop

I think I need to make them in those crazy colors as it makes the set look so happy 🙂

few more I have made and sold over years:

crocheted necklaces

I remember when I first made that necklace, I blogged about it on my blogger blog then, I think it was four years ago, someone read about it and bought it straight away. I am so glad, because since then I made many and I really love to make them.

Recently after a long break in my little design business I received two separate orders for them and one is in orange, huge thanks to my client as that color is my all time favorite. It was really exciting to make it in orange and here are the results. I hope you like it too. I have them available on my website and actually I can make it any color you like because that cotton comes in a wide spectrum of colors 🙂

The bracelet can be also used as a necklace so it is very special piece of jewellery find it here – Izabela Motyl
