2nd Anniversary to me – and Giveaway for You!!

happy-anniversary-balloon-bouquet I can’t believe it’s been two years ago today
that I started my patterns venture. It seems
so cliché to say “where does time go”, but I
have enjoyed doing this so much that it does
not look like 2 years, but only a few months.

I would love to take this opportunity to Thank
You all  for your Wonderful  support and such
Sweet  comments, I do appreciate them more
than You could imagine! THANK YOU!!!

IN THE NEWS This year seems to be so busy and on my schedule so far:
– double number of patterns (5 are already done);
– start a newborn/baby line (almost done the fist designs and I must to
admit that I completely hooked! Thanks to So special opportunity and
customer requests);
– do my Best to promote my business and open several on-line stores
for selling the patterns (a 1st store in 2010 was set up yesterday)
– some more SUPER EXCITING news, but please allow me to keep you
in suspense for awhile ;o)

GRAND OPENNING I’ve finally opened my Artfire shop, where listed all
my patterns available so  far. More come soon!

GIVEAWAY And now is my MOST Favorite part and Absolute pleasure it’s
offer something to You and have an ideas..  so, let’s go ;)

birthday-party-invitations First… I am offering a Surprise Box of 15-20 balls
of variety of Euro yarn
whatever for You or your
Sweetie projects. I’ll email with quick questionnaire

favorite colors and textures. As alternative to yarn,
I am also offering a $50 Gift Certificate to ANY your
favorite online shop or retail store – just name it!
So, Yarn or GC is  fully for your choice!!

even say “Hi!” So simply and no any obligations!! ;) Only you need, it’s

will be randomly picked up and notified on Sunday, March, 7th.

img-thing And second one… just for FUN ;o) A FIRST person,
who guess on which pattern for 2010 designs I’m
working now, will get a pattern for ~That! design
and all materials needed for Free. Hint: it is for top
for sizes 2-12Y in theme I never offered before.

because flowers are one of my fav theme ;o) But oh yes, it’s a flower
and now I bet you will much easy guess which one. Can’t wait to see
the Winner!!
*** The Winner!!! WOW Becia!! Yes, I decided to make a mini collection
of 3-4 tops in “Dandelion” spirit (aka 3D flowers) theme and poppy is a
second one… But Oh my, Becia, are you reading my mind, or do I  know
You?! :) I still wonder because a poppy theme was a huge surprise for

    I think all your little girl patterns are darling. I’m fairly new at crochet and some of them even look like something I could do. I hope you are planning on something like a girls crocheted boatneck summer sweater in the near future. I also like the new website. It makes finding all your patterns a piece of cake! I hope you have the best in continued success.

    Congrats!! I love your patterns. I plan to purchase some today. Keep up the good work. Can’t wait to see your baby line. Also, I would LOVE to see a boys vest pattern. If anyone can make one, you can. I can’t seem to find one anywhere. My guess for the new 2010 pattern is a tulip top.

    Congrats Alla on your expansion and 2 year anniversary. I have been a faithful fan of yours and look forward to seeing and creating whatever designs you release. I know you are a busy woman but I wonder if you plan to expand your hat line. I was recently diagnosed with cancer and am going through chemo and would love to work up some hats that only your imagination can create.
