My very first tote I created for my vacation. Made from natural raffia, I think it’s a great as market or beach tote… or to carry your knit or crochet projects 😉
You know, I am still crazy on polka dots, but these 3D dots are my absolute new favorites!! So, at least one more design will be released soon. Not to mention that “winter” version of 3D is also created. Can’t wait to share!
⁉️ And last, but not least: do you think I should to write a pattern? Or on market are tons of tote patterns already?

One more sneak peek and more dogs as I promised 😉
Yep, we had 3 dogs last weekend 🥰 Our chihuahua Pixie (red one) hosted a sleepover party with Simba and Honey while their parents were out of town.
I still need to write a sweater’s “saga” and edit more pictures. But oh my, I am in trouble – here are so many awesome shots to choose from!
Thank you so much Sergey!! You are the BEST! 🔥

Hi my dears friends,
How are you? I was busy like a bee and I have some news for you.
If you know me, I am a huge fan of owls. And even if every fall I tried to be timely with some new designs, I got luck just once in 2010 with Whimsical Forest Peek-a-Boo Coat and Owl Jacket ;o) So, this year I decided to start from Winter/Holidays Owl designs…. and seems it was right decision ;o) So, let me introduce Owleta–the owl collection for every Imagical season. Winter/Holidays collection was inspired by such cutie Swarovski little owl my lovely friend’s gift from Italy (unfortunately, the picture below just can’t justify the beauty of my absolute favorite owl!)
So far I ended up with 6 designs for Winter/Holidays collection, and first one is Owleta’s Secret vest. I am in such a love with my Peek-a-Boo Hood idea so I decided to bring it back with some fresh and festive look. The pattern is half way done and more details are coming soon. This vest is made with my absolutely favorite Cascade Yarns Pacific and Lion Brand Yarn Fun Fur for fun and furry touches.
Treat your loved ones with the luxurious feel of Owleta’s Secret vest this delightful winter! Opt for bamboo or cotton blends for fall and spring.
Oh, and BTW, what do you think – it’s knitted or crocheted?!! ;o)
A lovely and wonderful day everyone!!
