Have a very nice weekend!

Today was the hardest day from at least a year so no time for making the post for you I was going to.
Just a quick sneak peek of big yarn knitting I made lately and I will be back soon, so stay tunned!

Cotton baby blanket

Today I'd like to show you some little part of my work I did when waiting for the little Zu. This is also a part of my adventure with grey cotton blend fabric, which I use random, but as you will see in my future posts, I have made some home and wear details out of this kind of fabric.

Wedding table plans

It seems like the weekend is over again. This one was very busy for me, not only because of the 14th months old Zuuu and all the staff I wanted to do because of the usual weekend. Here, on the Blog, perhaps it looks like I had two days off from posts and the Passion of mine, but in fact it is totally different! However I didn't write even a tiny part of a post, I did a lot of searching, digging, thinking - of what to do and how to do it to make this Blog a nice place for everyone, not just me. I hope in few days, or maybe a bit later, I will show you a part of this conceptual work I did this weekend, while the rest of it will remain my mystery :-) Oh, you can't even imagine - and couldn't have I before, how much labourious it is to have a blog.

Burlap Art inspiration

I'm thinking for a while now of making our own photo wall gallery at the house we live at right now. So not only dreaming of the new one, but to improve the place we live here and now.

Happy Grandfather's Day

Just a quick note that came to my mind after this day, being in fact Grandfather's Day in Poland. I have an idea for a new tagline for my babyblog :-) 'Powered by friends!' Wow, thank you guys! You're awesome!

Newborn beanies

Today is Grandmother's Day in Poland. One of mine has unfortunately passed away few years ago, but is still in my mind, especially in this day. I remember when I was a little girl I used to take few lessons on knitting from my dearest Granny, who knew everything about knitting. She used to make those colorful knitted winter socks, which I wear when the snow is deep. I still regret I learned only how to make the first step with needles and that's all. But the passion for it was somewhere there in me, waiting for its moment in my life. 

And here it is! The begining of it wasn't in fact connected with the extreme knitting, I wrote about in my previous post. It was a time when I was expecting my little baby. My husband grandmother made us two gorgeous newborn sweaters with little hats. They brought me to the idea of arranging a newborn photo session for my baby when she comes into the world. I've started to learn left and right loops, the most simple patterns for how to make a newborn beanie. Because I was fond of photos of little babies with those cute beanies on. My dream was to make the session with beanies made by my own. And I did it!

Egg collection of Craftberrybush

If I ever have my own small, cozy house, I would make some part of it decorated with the Egg collection and Feather collection - both made by Craftberrybush, which I admire alot. The work of this artist looks prettiest with every project she does, especially her watercolor paintings, so gentle and colorful. And so realistic. I keep following her for many months now, and I'm still not decided which project of her I'd love to have the most. However, as I was born in a neighborhood of great green forest, full of birds and animals, I would like to have a piece of it at my home. That's why I picked the Egg collection and the Feather collection, as they reflect the nature of birds and the colors are one of my favorites. Look how beautiful they are:

My Story

I used to believe the company and civil law is the essence of my life, until I discovered the passion for creativity. One day I just realized that the only thing which makes me really, really happy is crafting. I knew that long time before I got my first sewing machine (Nov 2012), I just didn’t say that out loud to myself.

Extreme knitting

I don't remember actually how it started, I think it was some design magazine that showed me a photo of an extreme knitted white blanket. And I desired to make such cozy and stunning things. I've started with looking up for this big loop yarn and adequate needles and I've found many people doing these things and selling all necessary stuff. My first inspiration was Jacqueline Fink from Little Dandelion who makes such a wonderful blankets and throws. I asked my dearest hubby - Santa Claus to bring me those huge needles and at least a sample of the big yarn so that I could check whether it is a story for me. My beloved Santa, supported by the TJOCKT company from Finland brought me that fantastic present I wished!
