Look who came to visit my little garden… isn’t she gorgeous!!! I wonder if she sprinkled some pixie dust!? We always need a little bit of fairy magic;) don’t you think so…
Faith, trust and pixie dust!
Laughter is timeless…Imagination has no age… And dreams are forever!
What a week! Busy, busy, busy…. my big boy went to Big school in his new uniform, he looks so grown up (sigh) – where did time go??? And my other rascal went to new school too and it looks like he having lots of fun! Yay!!! And me settling into routine… so nice to have child free morning!!! I can get lots of thing done… bring it on ;)
So now back to creativity – meet my Laska Dolls - childhood inspired dolls, and I’m not going to use “vintage” word – so over used:( I just want to make something that will remind me and hopefully some one else – of simple things in life. Personally they remind me of my childhood and time that I spend with my grandparents’ very summer and my favorite pancakes that my babushka made for me in the morning…
Laska – russian word for – expression of love and care.
Laska Dolls made with scraps of fabric that my mom in law and my dear friend Claire gave to me last year…Thank you so much. And lately I got a bit tired with my hooks and wool so it was perfect time to do something new. I sold them at the Xmas market and made few for my friends… Little people and even big ones really like them… such a good feeling :)
Each doll has a name and little story of where she lives, what animals she has and what are her favorite things to do… and her favorite recipe. My boys love them (they even helped me to make them) and they really really want me to make one that looks like a pirate… So I better get busy while they having fun at school.
It was great to share this with you and thank you for reading. Have a fun day.
Love, Yuli xxx
I always want to crochet dress for little girl, I even start making one while I was pregnant with my second child and of course when we found out it was a boy I lost interest and put it away:( Don’t get me wrong – I love my boys, but I always thought I will have little girl so I can make lovely girly things… and teach her how to knit, sew and all the crafty stuff that I love…
Year ago my dearest friend Claire gave birth to little girl on the same day as Peters (my beloved young one) birthday – double YAY!!! So this December we celebrated 2 birthdays together – my special man and 1st birthday of the very special girl Anna… She is the cutes thing ever… xoxoxo and what a great excuse to make a summer dress…
Party was lots of fun and just look at this birthday girl xxx
I LoVE this photo… Peter and kids had so much fun with that car…you can see it on Max’s face (;
It was fun to make this dress and I think it came out really nice (; It’s my own pattern… I crochet top with Elle cotton, at the back I have 3 heart buttons and skirt of the dress I made with lovely cotton fabric and “country” lace that I brought from C T.
Me just want to make few more… and if you want me to make one for your little lady let me know…
Time flies… busy time of the year… no time for updating ): so horrible that I didn’t post for such a long time.
Here it is New Year 2011 so I better start with my new year resolutions (; : 1st on the list – writing at least once a week!!! 2nd – sort my creative space and stuff – its ciaos in here… I’m all the time looking for something… frustrating ): 3rd – don’t know yet…
Ok, I’m been busy making stock for my friend Xmas Market on the lovely farm. Hehe - stock sounds very serious, let say couple of nice things to sell… So I decide to make things for kids (especially for girls, maybe just because I don’t have one;) Here is some pics:
Wand…crowns…tutu’s…and cupcake T-shirts
Crochet flowers hair clips… elastics for pony tails… alicebands… and head bands
And this is only picture I could find of my felt pirate crown and sword ): Also I made cool T-shirts for boys with funky aliens and skull & cross bones …Next time I MUST take pics before my stuff get sold =)
That it for now, but look out for more pics soon xxx
And of course Happy New Year!!! May it bring you lots of love, happiness, wealth…and exciting opportunities… Cheers!!! Salut!! Wooh Hooo
