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 πŸ™‚


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 πŸ™‚

few more I have made and sold over years:

summer holidays

by izabela

i sent two bigger kids back to poland for holiday

i miss them so much already

but i know they are in good hands with their grandmother

and all cousins


there is so much to do waiting on my list

and i cannot really say the list is getting any shorter

for one thing i do there is two things coming in

is there anyway that someone can manage everything on his own?

i don’t think so

but if any of you know any way to do that

i would much appreciate if you told me

for example leaving comment below or emailing me here

also tweet tips or skype me at any timeΒ  πŸ™‚

and if you like

take part in my little poll


by the way

fingerless mittens and inspiration

by izabela

my last fair wasn’t the best for me money-wise

but lovely day and great event for meeting crafty people and friends

and chatting to potential customers

do you remember what i was making for the fair?

the mittens look fantastic in my opinion and they got loads of positive comments,

but didn’t sell any on the day

after the fair i got the order, from one of the ladies that saw them on my stall,


yes two, so one of them is already posted as the other pair is in custom colors




fingerless mittens with a rose

sent to a customer

have got more colors to come πŸ™‚



by the way

are you on ο»Ώpinterestο»Ώ?

some time ago i joined and since then find inspiration from other people’s finds

and it is so easy to share what you like

and nice that you can follow people with similar interests and taste as you

so if you like to get inspired and like to share and pin things for future use

this is the site for you

oh and i find this site’s interface as very very friendly πŸ™‚

check my pinterests too (still building it)

winter set is ready

by izabela

remember this post with some work in progress?

well the set is ready and i am really happy how it turned out

i did not know what shawl i want to make and what hat i want to make

but now once i made it i am sure they all match perfectly together

this set should give you a little retro feeling

if it doesn’t it means i failed but i still like it πŸ™‚
