Happy Birthday to me, Gifts for You!

(🇷🇺⤵︎) Today is my birthday and I would love to Thank each and every of you for your love and support! How it’s awesome and feels absolutely wonderful to belong to a community of people who appreciate and enjoy creativity.

And as a way to say Thank You, I’m offering for free my Imagical Seasons crochet pattern books in PDF format to every customer who places an order today. So, if here any particular patterns that you are looked for, there won’t be a better time to order it… and not wait until next year ;o)

The terms are pretty simple:
• Everyone who order any 2 patterns in my Etsy, Ravelry or shops (active links in profile) will get both Imagical Seasons crochet pattern books: Spring and Summer volumes in PDF format for free.
• All orders of $45+ in addition to books in PDF format, will receive them in PAPERBACK formats too (US customers only, please).

This offer expires April 22nd, 2021 at 12:59 pm PST time.

🇷🇺 Сегодня мой день рождения, и очень хочется поблагодарить всех вас за то, что вы со мной—куда бы я не пропадала временами… Это так суперски здорово быть частичкой сообщества где любят и ценят креатив и красоту!

Я всегда любила больше дарить чем получать подарки, и в этот день я решила всем кто сделает покупку 2 любых инструкций в моих онлайн магазинах, получит в подарок две мои книги в PDF формате. Для заказов на сумму $45+ (и проживающих в США) я с удовольствием отправлю плюс к PDF и печатную версию книг.

Так что, если у вас были в хотелках какие-либо мои инструкции, – сегодня отличный день чтобы их приобрести… следующий будет через год ;)

Contest for Fun

(🇷🇺⤵︎) I finally started to clean and organize my folders, and found this fruit collection… what a blast from the past!

Do you remember this one?

Let’s have a fun!
Everyone who will guess a name of this collection will get ANY of my pattern for free. Any pattern, not only from this collection. Just leave a comment here or direct me with your version.

Oh, and please note: All patterns of this collection are old-style patterns (read my first ones) with partial diagrams, but row-by-row written instructions in English (US terms).

🇷🇺 Я тут занялась осмысленной чисткой компьютера, и наткнулась на эту фруктовую коллекцию, – кто помнит?! 😉

А давайте устроим маленький конкурс… Кто угадает (или вспомнит) название этой коллекции, – получит любую мою инструкцию (не обязательно из этой коллекции) бесплатно. Напишите вашу версию здесь в комментариях или директ.

Ну, и должна предупредить, что инструкции из этой коллекции – фактически мои первые, поэтому они, безусловно, отличаются по уровню и стилю ;)

The Winner!!

What a Story!!

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.
