Spring updates

Hi my dears!
Long time no hear from me. I have a reason for it. I made master class with Alla Visir. It was beautiful to work with this famous Master. I got many pleasant impressions and knowledge.The result of this masterclass is my brooch.

 Here is a back side of the brooch. It was really great experience. When I start learning to tat I was going to make some details for my quilts. Now I realize that it's getting serious for me. I'm happy when I tat. When I found Alla Visir and her tatted things I was so impressed and decided to ask her to teach me. She has several masterclasses and brooch is most attractive by volume of the getting knowledge. It took about month to complete this studying. I like the way she taught me. The class consist of 10 parts. All the parts are described with photos and patterns moreover you have an opportunity to ask about the process any time via email. When you complete a part she give  a comment and if everything is right you get the next part. So it's a great common work.

 The photo bellow is my parallel process. It is in the middle now.

And of course I can not live without something new. I make a small turtle. Here is its shell, other parts are in the process.
Thank you for your visit. See you soon. Enjoy your crafts!

Tatted collar

Hi my dears!
Let me show you a new tatted collar. I used Toho and Mill Hill seeds, threads Milford 40 to make it. I love the results because when I started to make it I was going to get something in boho style. And my thoughts came true.

 I took the pattern on the Internet. It is from Russian magazine.

 I slightly changed the pattern included 3 seeds in each petal, 1 seed in the middle  of the flowers and 1 seed between them.
Thank you for your visit. See you soon.

Hi my dears!
It's winter here now but in my Motherland the summer is running. The weather this morning was -1C. And in spite of the weather conditions it's time for me to make something light and weightless because my mother-in-law has a birthday in August. So it must be surprise for her. This collar and cuffs for her dress. I used gold seeds and DMS pink threads perle 12 to make them.

 The pattern for collar is from  a Russian book, the pattern for cuffs I made on my own using the pattern of the collar.
 Hope she likes them.
Thank you for your visit. See you soon.

An organizer for my knitting tools

Hi my dears!
The days aren't sunny this time and I have no opportunity to make good photos. But my wish to show you my new knitting organizer is stronger than the weather conditions. So here it is
 This thing is from two separate sides which connects with the hook&loop tape. It's very convenient because it's possible to leave unneeded one.

 You can put into many things you need because this type of locks allows this organizer to get wider.
Hope you like it. Enjoy your day. See you soon.
