I got very touching email from one of my follower (swipe to see). I asked if I can share it with you. Barbara’s answer caused tears in my eyes.
❝ My God Alla! Of course you may! You are a blessing!!! Always there through a storm. I lost my job some years ago and by following your posts and running to Hobby Lobby to buy a crochet book when I knew you had a published pattern made my job hunting days easier to bear. I thank you so much. Also, you didn’t know it but when I lost my job, I won the gift certificate and the delicious gardenia fragrance for naming the pattern. I have looked for years and could never find the scent. Whenever I look at the gardenias in my back yard, I think of you and how you helped me get through a very hard time. I actually put the plants there because of the scent of the fragrance you sent me. True story! Be safe and you can use any of my words because the world needs to know that you are a gift from the God!
Thank you so much. I will send a picture when I finish.

There should be photos from our trip to Mexico, which we sure had to cancel … although we all still had a huge desire to get some rest and were upset because this would be our last vacation with Kristin before her leaving to uversity. So, we arranged a vacation at home: no work, minimum social networks, a lot of relax, reading, walking, chatting online with our friends. It was super time and we had lots of fun!! ⠀
Now I plan slowly back to work on patterns I planned this month, work on new designs and finish two courses I have. So, I have so much on my plate, well as always 🙈🤓. ⠀

YAY! My first Fluffy Clouds Crochet Blanket VIP pattern is just released!! ⠀
I started with one of your favorite and most popular Fluffy Clouds Crochet Blanket … which in May marks 10 years since the publication. Celebrating this event, I added one more version of the finishing border to the pattern. A “traditional” pattern will be updated too! Also, I received a question: “Would the blanket look good with a blue trim?” The answer on the first two photos.
PLEASE NOTE: This pattern is written in my new VIP style (Visual-Style International Pattern), which combines minimal written instructions along with very detailed stitch diagrams, schematics, and photo/video tutorials when needed.
If you prefer written out instructions, please check my shop for this pattern which comes with row-by-row written instructions.
Remember, all my patterns already have detailed crochet stitch diagrams, so purchasers of either the “Traditional” or VIP version will get all the stitch diagrams and schematics necessary. The main difference will be the VIP version has less written instructions, which suits the visual crafter’s way of making and will be available in multiple languages as soon as possible. I will release the VIP version first, followed by the traditional, written-out pattern.
***** In fact, for first-time VIP purchases, if you find you still prefer fully written instructions, I will gladly provide you with a replacement pattern written in the “traditional style” at NO extra charge.

It’s that moment when you are a little embarrassed that you grabbed your daughter’s sweater for a photo shoot … and “hid” behind the dog.
Happy and productive Monday anyone!
Are you ready for VERY first VIP pattern? Any guesses which one will be released tomorrow?
Это тот момент, когда ты “стырил” свитер дочери для фотосессии… и ненавязчиво прикрылся собакой
Готовы к первой VIP инструкции, которая “выйдет в свет” уже завтра? Угадайте что это будет?!
