Crocheted Flower Headband pattern - Shop Notification

Well, I may freely call this a pattern week(end).
Another PDF Pattern for this lovely headband is now available. 
The flower pattern is amazing and can be used to make various crochet jewelry pieces and accessories. 
Check out my shop for more info. 
There is another pattern almost ready, but since Orthodox Easter is fast approaching, maybe we'll have a break of patterns and resume after the holidays.

Anyway, have a great Sunday!

Happy Earth Day!

The day at my school was marked by many, mostly outdoor activities like cleaning, planting, plastic bottles collecting, bike races, etc.
Earlier, we had made a bunch of crepe paper roses for sale, to raise money to buy real roses for the school yard. Cute, no?
 I hope you had a lovely day too!

Lace headband

Well, in between sewing the tulle skirts I am making for the photo shoot, at the weekend, I spent my free time crocheting this beauty in several colors -  you know I just can't resist making one. 
We've also had a beautiful trip outside the city and visited a monastery and a mill converted into a museum. I will share the pictures soon.

Bridal accessories in the make: a teaser

I just cannot tell you how much I love these!
They are the newest bohemian, romantic headbands just out of the crochet kiln which I previously referred to as squealing(ly) gorgeous. I am near the finish with a couple of other ones but couldn't help posting some teasers. 

 Wishing you a fantastic weekend!

Spring brooches

Hello friends,
How was your weekend?
Ours started a bit on the fabulous side, out by the lake (of Ohrid) and it was so springlike nice and warm I knew it couldn't be true and that it might be a short -lived joy  which it proved it was because the winter slashed its tail at us in the form of piercing cold rain and weather on Sunday.

That didn't ruin our mood and we managed to get the most of it.
I finished some skinny headbands {they are squealing gorgeous, take my word for it} but due to the above-mentioned reasons no pictures could be taken. At least I have my crocheted flowers to bring me spring :)

The Halloweenish brooch was made for a colleague of mine that is in love with the color combination and I also made one for the shop, while the brooches down are the same as the baby (anemone) headbands I had earlier only much bigger. I used the same colors because I can't get enough of them.

Until next time!

Bead rings

Well, we started April with relatively fair and warm weather and there has been a lot of rain - but I guess there should be some if we want flowers in May :P

As for the flowers, we all had our share of planting - mainly mini roses and carnations {they are divine} and some violets. In the sense of crochet flowers, I made some flower brooches and headbands. And I've altered some scarves I am itching to share. Soon.
