Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter 🐣🐰 to you!! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Spring is finally here in Seattle, my most favorite season! This is definitely the magic time makes you want to stay outside as much as possible and put in non-working mood a bit ☺️ But I have excuse—my lovely garden and everyday’s 3-5 walking in our neighborhood… ⠀

Have a lovely and beautiful day 🥰🥰🥰

In The News

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 🙈🤓. ⠀

Blast From The Past

I take courses in mobile shooting and video and first lesson was rules of composition in photography.
I wonder that I found all requested-homework images in my archive, even if first three 10 years old, and I had no idea about all these rules. Mother’s power to capture memories of their little ones is just amazing!! ⠀


Pixie & Me

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?!


Our Kristin 😍😍😍
… when sweater modeling went into a portrait photo shoot. Just can’t resist to share.

Snow in Seattle :)

Seattle’s first snow of the season ❄️☃️ Snow isn’t that common here and city tends to slow or even shut down with mere inches of snow. So, schools are still closed. And I started this morning with thawing nectar in the hummingbird’s feeders 🙃

If you are curious, below are some interesting facts about Seattle’s snow:

The most snow that Seattle has ever had was 64 inches. This record was made back in 1880. Usually, however, the average is about five inches of snow every season. In some years they don’t get any snow. Other notable snow seasons include the 21.4 inches back in 1950 and the 21.5 inches in 1916. Getting snow of this amount is really rare in Seattle.

I am just back from walking and so enjoyed sun and snow ❄️ What is your weather today?😉

Blast From The Past

Hehe… look what I found. Our baby Kristin in my very first crochet coat design.

P.S: Would you recognize our daughter now… in her 17?! 🥰

That Magic Mood

•Rus⤵︎• The snow is falling somewhere (but not in Seattle) and the wonderful season is already here. I love this time of year when the magic happens. This year even the hummingbirds decided to spend the winter with us – I have never seen so many of them in our backyard.
Did you recognize this lovely sweet girl and the scarf she wears?! ;o)
And BTW, regarding my previous post about the colors this one looks like true turquoise for me. How about you? ;o)
🇷🇺 Хотя снег в Сиэтле и редкость, но праздничное настроение никто не отменял, и я обожаю это время года. Не в смысле обложиться мандаринками в ожидании боя курантов, а когда радует каждая деталь и все воспринимается через какую-то магическую призму. В этом году даже колибри решили с нами «перезимовать» – я никогда не видела их в таком количестве у нас в саду.
Кстати, узнаете суперскую девчонку-модельку?! А шарфик? 😉
И, возвращаясь к теме сине-зелёных оттенков, цвет шарфика и футболки я вижу как бирюзовый (turquoise). ⁉️А как видите его вы? Всегда очень интересно насколько мы по разному видем и воспринимаем цвета и оттенки.
