by izabela

>I have to start preparing myself for my next craft fair as i am running out of stock a little so i am making my Delicate Necklaces and going to make more earrings, there is a little bell ringing in my head to start on something new but i dont know if i find the time for it…

as the time is running fast i am going to invite you all to come to London to We Make London Spectacular at Chelsea Town Hall and see and buy from local artists and makers the most unique and original things… i will remind on this blog closer to the date about the venue, but put it in your diaries 26th June 2010, from 11am to 5pm

some time ago I made this lovely top and sent it to someone and if you would like to meet her go to her blog here, she is a fantastic crocheter and keeps this great blog and also other one where she wrote about my top

>LAST WEEK…

by izabela

>this and last week are very productive weeks for me, here photo of finished necklace made of metallic thread, very delicate and too easy to tangle up so need to think of some findings to make it easier to put on… but it is not such a problem just need time…

and almost finished the mini bolero… it is so lovely that i have to start on new one soon… and of course in need of some blocking or good ironing…

last week i sent of black doily earrings to the customer, and now i am to start lovely top in purple on commission from etsy…


started a very nice summer top from some fashion magazine and i am already half way done… that is all so time consuming but making me so happy :]

I promised you a photo of the finished Corset Top I made recently… so here it is:

>CRAFT GUERRILLA…

by izabela

>I won the “competition” from East London Craft Guerrilla blog, the blog is followed by me for quite a long time now because I would really like to be there if not every month so at least every other month on their crafty nights… this sounds like fantastic time to me… but as I don`t live in London (only 37 minutes by train to Paddington, ha) and I don`t have no support from my family (my husband – I meant) so I am only planning to go… but well if don`t live too far from their lovely handcrafted events I am sure this are not to be missed… check here for updates on what is going on…

but of course about my prize – it is one year of free feature on their featured sellers site (coming soon) and you can be featured as well – just go on their website for details… East London Craft Guerrilla

***

and about my creating – my two tops (one is going to be a tunic) they are so close to be finished and it is going to be next week with ready photos…

maly update w szydelkowaniu – dwa topy (jeden to bedzie tunika) sa tak blisko skonczenia ze pewnie w przyszlym tygodniu bede mogla je pokazac…

orange top from Blueprint Crochet book by Robyn Chachula

pomaranczowy top z Blueprint Crochet – Robyn Chachula:


purple tunic by me (me!)

fioletowa tunika – calkowicie moja!


and just started little black bolero

wlasnie zaczete male czarne bolerko


and new nature inspired necklace (my beloved tiny crochet hook and very fine crochet yarn)

i nowa szydelkowa kolia zainspirowana natura (moje ulubione malenkie szydelko i bardzo cienka wloczka)

and what I am practicing for some time now, I am rather not putting photos of ready things on this blog (maybe sometimes) because I want to keep it in all life and crafting and children and whatever comes theme and finished objects are going to my blog which is like portfolio of my work and you can find it here

a i co wprowadzilam juz w zycie juz jakis czas temu to to ze zdjec ukonczonych raczej nie pokazuje tutaj na tym blogu (no moze czasami) bo chce go utrzymac jako taki bardziej zyciowy blog a za to staram sie je pokazywac na biezaco na moim blogu ktory sluzy mi jako takie male portfolio a znajdziecie go tutaj

but this one is my first necklace made from very fine crochet yarn and some people say that would be great if I made it with beads but this yarn is so thin that I think it may not be a very good idea… perhaps some seed beads would work better?

a to wlasnie jedna z moich skonczonych rzeczy, pierwsza kolia (naszyjnik, ale kolia brzmi dumniej) wyszydelkowana malenkim szydelkiem, niektorzy ludzie komentuja ze ladnie by wygladala z dodanymi koralikami, ale troche sie obawiam bo jest to napraawde cienka wloczka… moze te najdrobniejsze koraliki sie sprawdza – zobacze…

>CROCHET UPDATES…

by izabela

>I have started a top recently which supposed to be my own design (no pattern, straight from my head) and is coming out good but not perfect yet… and actually first it was top and now I decided to make a tunic… well I see later how it is going to look 😉

ostatnio zaczelam taki top, niby wlasny projekt (bez zadnego wzoru tak sobie z glowy) i nawet niezle wychodzi ale niestety nie perfekcyjnie… i wlasciwie na poczatku mial byc to top teraz stwierdzilam ze bedzie to tunika, ale jak naprawde bedzie wygladac to sie dopiero okaze…

I am making another top but this one is from the book Blueprint Crochet by Robyn Chachula (hmm I am actually reading the pattern and following almost blindly all instructions) and the progress is a bit quicker than my own one…

dziergam sobie tez bluzeczke z ksiazki Blueprint Crochet pani Robyn Chachula (i nawet czytam wzor i podazam za instrukcjami prawie slepo) a dzierga sie ja bardzo szybko, duzo szybciej niz moja wlasna…

but to not get too bored with long crocheting, today, while babysitting my sister`s baby again, I made this cuff I – love it, but already listed in my etsy shop, as I don`t go anywhere where I could wear it 😦

a zeby nie znudzic sie za bardzo dlugim szydelkowaniem, to zajmujac sie znowu coreczka siostry zrobilam taki mankiet (czy tez bransoletke, jak kto woli) – bardzo mi sie podoba tyklo nie chodze nigdzie wiec nie mialabym kiedy jej nosic, wiec od razu wstawilam do sklepu 😦

the lovely button is made by Gill from HollingdaleDesigns, which I really love and I was there shopping again…

guzik jest zrobiony przez Gill z Hollingdale Designs – jest piekny jak dla mnie i znowu zrobilam u niej zakupy…

>TIME TO RELAX…

by izabela

>now after Handm@de Cambridge is over I can sit and relax, but my sitting and relaxing is just again making things, can`t stop, ha…

teraz kiedy cakle zamieszanie wokol Handm@de Cambridge sie skonczylo moge sobie usiasc i odpoczac, no ale u mnie siedzenie i relaksowanie sie rowna sie robieniu czegos znowu, ha…

it was a great venue, but of course I would love sell more, I can`t say I didn`t do well because I did make some profit and this keeps me happy, but I had many things I would love to exchange for money and they had to go back home with me…

oczywiscie podobalo mi sie bardzo chociaz chcialabym sprzedac wiecej, nie moge jednak powiedziec ze bylo az tak zle, bo nawet udalo mi sie jakies pieniazki zarobic i to mnie cieszy, tylko ze tyle rzeczy moglo zostac wymienione na pieniadze, a musialo wrocic ze mna do domu…

I did take any photo of the stall me and Ania had set up, but my daughter has taken this one

nie zrobilam zadnych zdjec naszego stolu, ale moja corka pstrykla miedzy innymi to

I know it is late and I should be in bed but tomorrow I am baby sitting again so no time to write a word… and there is something I would love to show you… I just started a very nice top from the ready pattern, I hate making things from patterns but I bought this book in London Stitch & Craft show and I so want to crochet this and the pattern is great because it is diagram and I love diagrams and when do not have to follow just a river of words I can just have a look on the diagram and I know everything (we`ll see if really everything when I will be done with it, ha) I was missing knitting needles so much that I had to start something knitted and this is a sweater from Yarn Forward magazine but I don`t think I will ever finish that because this is me – knitting needles always end up in the box hidden in the cupboard, unfortunately (but I am still hoping this time this is not going to be true ;])

wiem tez ze jest bardzo pozno i powinnam juz grzecznie lezec w lozeczku, tym bardziej ze jutro ponownie bawie sie w nianie, ale tez nie bedzie czasu nawet na napisanie krotkiego slowka… a mam cos chcialabym pokazac… wlasnie zaczelam sliczny top z gotowego wzoru, nie cierpie dziergac ze wzoru, ale kupilam ta ksiazke na targach w Londynie i od razu stwierdzilam ze te oto bluzeczke wydziergam, dodam jeszcze ze wzor jest swietny bo sa schematy a ja kocham schematy a nie cierpie podazac za potokiem slow, na schemat to sobie tylko spojrze i juz wiem wszystko (to znaczy to sie jeszcze okaze, czy rzeczywiscie wszystko, jak top skoncze, ha) i stesknilam sie za drutami tak bardzo ze musialam cos zaczac – sweterek z gazetki Yarn Forward tylko ze watpie ze kiedykolwiek go skoncze, bo u mnie to druty zawsze laduja w pudle gdzies na dnie szafy, niestety (ale wciaz zywie nadzieje, ze tym razem bedzie inaczej ;])


oh and something from some time ago, look what Ali sent me for our Time For Tea swap, when I just opened the box the biscuits dissapeared in one moment, there where so yummy, good I do not have to share my tea because its great, I got lovely yummy wooly yarn, some buttons and beads and a very colorful coasters, thank you so much Ali! it has been good to be your swap partner 🙂
