Crochet shawl


Hi, friends!
I should admit it - I can never have too many shawls :) 
When I want to crochet something but can't decide on the perfect project I look at my stash of yarns. I grab the one that  is "calling me" that day and inspires me the most. Then I spend the rest of the day working on the perfect shawl pattern.  

This is one of the shawls that I've created this way recently.You can find it in my SHOP.



 The yarn is very soft and it is made in beautiful colors. I'm in love with batik yarns. The colors change in the process of knitting/crocheting and the result is always wonderful. 

Here are some of my favorite colors:





If you are interested you can check them out HERE

I’m more than pleased with how my shawl turned out to be. It’s so soft and nice to 

touch. And I want to share with you the PATTERN too.



Enjoy!

Golden crochet crosses

 I made these crosses of golden thread and they are starched. It will very interesting gift for Christening favors for example.

You can find these crosses HERE
One of clients used them as  gifts for all of the guests for her son's baptism. 
Here you can see how she used them. 




I like when my clients leave those lovely reviews. Thank you, Emilia!
*Purchased 18 sets of gold crosses to tie to the Bombardiers (favors) for my son's baptism. The craftsmanship and customer service were exceptional! The 72 crosses were crocheted in a matter of days, then were shipped out promptly. They arrived well before the event. Everyone was so impressed with their keepsake. They'd make great gifts as bookmarks (we tied a tassel to ours) or ornaments. So very pleased!!!*
