Life Lately | June News & Updates



What a busy, exciting and full of surprises month for many reasons!!

Well, we love beginning of every June, because here are al least 4 reasons: our Anniversary, Igor’s parents and my dad Birthdays (my daddy turned 70 this year, oh my – I can’t believe it!!)

In the other news, can you imagine that Kristin graduated middle school?! And sure, MOST exciting news is that yesterday, Igor and Kristin started a-little-trip-around-world-in-23-days (Thailand-Ukraine-Israel) and this morning they landed in Thailand for 5 days! I had many trips with my dad during my childhood, and I bet this one will be unforgettable for our daughter as well as for Igor! I am so happy we did this happened! I did not join because, unfortunately, I am not in good “relationships” with summer and hot weather, but I am looking forward for Europe-trip in late spring or early fall someday ;o)

So, I have 22 more days, which are already scheduled and seems pretty busy. This morning I started another yoga challenge and already took 6:00 am class. I really feel so blessed to afford myself back to work after months of dealing with “golfer’s elbow tendinitis (and I am not a golfer ;)) Not fan at all, but giving my poor hand some rest and treatment, I feel so happy and excited back to work! Plus I got a garden-aka-new-hobby since I can’t just sit and do nothing, and to my surprise, I definitely hooked!

Oh, we also did modeling for my newest hats. Many thanks to Lana Maytak for photo-shoot and her friend for such lovely adorable models!! More photos of another designs coming soon ;o)

Below is another option of Ladybug hat… I really LOVE how playful this design is! Not to mention that testing pattern, I created a Marguerite hat (pretty close to that blue/white hat, but with some unusual details ;o)) The pattern for hats and Marguerite Pin is coming pretty soon!! I’ll keep you updated!

    I must tell you that of all the patterns I’ve read and bought, your pattern writing skills are the Boss! I have never crocheted anything that wasn’t a triangle, rectangle or square for the last 8 years,(that’s how long I’ve been at it) so when I saw your Sakura Top I knew I had to make them for my nieces, 7 and 8 yrs; I was sort of scared, and excited and knew that I would step up with you ❤️
    As I immersed myself into this journey with your words I was continually impressed that you left no stone unturned, everything was noted, explained brilliantly, and if all else failed your charts and photos along with your sketches and color coordinated for sizes, we’re just so incredibly helpful, I couldn’t make a mistake, which I kept waiting to do!!!

    So I just want to thank you so so much; I have thoroughly enjoyed this journey, and look so forward to any of your patterns
    Your Big City Girl
    ( and how I wish you would design for big girls like me ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
