Long blog post

Hi my dears,
I wish you happy Monday! Are you ready to begin new week? Well, to tell you the true, I would like to lie in bed, drink a tea from our new teapot and read the book. I wrote the list of books, I would like to read and I am going to fulfill it! In last years, I was so busy with life :-), that I almost stopped to read the books (I don't count the textbooks, cookbooks, blogs, manuals) I mean, the stories, you know :-) and this has to be changed! And what about you, do you have your books' list? And do find the time for reading?

In my previous post I shared with you some pictures of our beautiful country and today, I will share with you the pictures of my work, I made last month, at least most of them :-) 

I made some owls of course :-)  
I made my blue owl, using my favorite Kacenka yarn, this time :-)

When I look at her, I hear this song: She's a lady in my head :-) Do you know that song? Tom Jones is dancing there amazingly, am I right? :-) The pattern is ready in the pattern store already. Do you see that beautiful tree stump? I was so happy, when I saw it. Just perfect for my lady :-)

I made a hat for one of my goddaughters. I used my ladybug applique :-) It was so much fun, using all these buttons. You know, I am mad about them! Don't worry, I made new hat for the sescond one too :-)

And I made a Haunted house as a custom order for my special customer Susan ♥ I really enjoyed it. You know, it is pure happiness when you are creating something for someone, who knows it's price. I don't mean money, I mean, the energy, which contains handmade creation. And Susan was exactly one of these customers. Thank you very much!

Did I ever tell you, that I love my customers? ♥

I have to share with you some new. This is really very new for me. I made my first front door decoration :-). We are slowly moving to our old/new home. As you know, I wrote about it in past, my hubby is reconstructing a house from 1912 with his own hands. He is very handy, my hero ♥, but it took so many years, so I stopped to count it already. When I see how much energy he spent with it and the work he already did... ♥ Well, and this autumn, we already moved, yeah! Not entirely, there is still lot of work in front of us, but the main thing is, that we have heathers, right? :-D So my very first front door decoration :-) I know, I have to work on it, hang the wreath etc., but I am very happy already :-)

Well my dears, this is really long blog post :-). If I was a real blogger, I would probably split it in several blog posts, and probably I should do it by this way, but .....:-) I wish you Happy Monday! And I am going to read my book, for few minutes at least before I will fall asleep. Most of all I am falling asleep with my hook in hand, hoping, that I will finish something. My girls are telling, that it is easy to put mommy to sleep :-) So today, I will fall a sleep with my book :-)

Hi my dears,
how are you? As I wrote in my older posts, I was with my girl, later with both girls ♥ on medical treatment stay. We were in mountains Jeseniky. It is just a beautiful place! When we were walking there, we saw so many magical places. Sometimes, I had the feeling, that the fairies are living there.  Most of the time, I haven't camera with me - of course! But on the other side - it forced me to stop, don't record it, just look at all this beauty and feel it with all sences. And that  air! You had the feeling, like you are breathe the health itself, literally :-) It was really nice time ♥









And that was view from our window - just wow :-)

Are you curious, if I was working also? Well, you have to wait until the next post. 
But those, who are following my instagram, they already know :-)

Hiii :-)

Hi my dears,
am I writing as I promised. We leaved our home and went to a month-long unplanned medical treatment stay with my Natalka. Nelinka is first grade student, as you know, from my last post, so she can't came with us, but my hubby brings her to us every weekend. I am sooooo looking forward to hug and kiss her ♥ Sometimes the circumstances split our family and I don't take it well, and I am sad, and my Natalka noticed and hug me and told me, that she loves me, and that we will together again soon, and that I am strong girl and .... you know, and at these moments, I tell to myself, that my "mommy's work goes well and I am so proud of her - of both my rainbow fairies"... Because sometimes, I have the feeling, that it is hard to be a parent, you know... Oh, my philosophical time is over, I promise :-D

So we are at beautiful place, great for Natalka's medical treatment and we have wonderful Indian summer here - so we spent many time in fresh air, walking in countryside. And not only we are enjoying this beautiful time, it looked like butterflies meeting today:-) I can't resist and I just had to make some pictures, even when I had only my 5% battery "full" almost dying cellphone with me, 

So we saw the Macroglossum stellatarum again. Those, who follow my instagram know this creature already :-)

And we saw Vanessa cardui

And Inachis io

And Aglais urticae

And Pieris brassicae (but when I catched to make the picture with his open wings, my cell phone died)... so you have to believe me, that it was Pieris brassicae :-)

I am trying to teach my girls generic names of some animal species, just for fun :-) Sometimes my biologist's soul is calling me :-). And here in Jeseniky, is so wonderful countryside and always so many beauties to see :-) I will make some pictures soon, someday when I will have not only my still almost dying cell phone but my camera also. It is still sad and lonely in the bag. Writing about sad and lonely things - my hooks don't belong to this group now. I am working on some cute neeeews and some orders. There is still something to crochet, right? ♥ 

P.S.: I took 2 books with me - what a naive girl, am I :-)

Thank you for your time, my dears! 

Have a great weekend ♥

Just few lines :-)

Hi my dears,
I am writing as I promised :-) I am busy like a bee, there are many news in our family life. My baby girl goes in 1st grade! I am touched and sad and happy - all in one - it run so fast! After almost one week she still loves school LOL, she is like little a little bit confused ladybug ♥ And we are in moving process, my hubby is reconstructing our small house from 1902 - several years, with his own hands. He is my hero! But we both know, that it is more complicated, that we had imagined and we are really tired.  But the great thing about all that situation is, that we are close to each other as a family and that our girls see, that nothing comes alone. If you would like to have something, you just have to work for it :-) And they are happy and grateful for every improvement. Sooooo only one sentence: Show must go on, right? :-D

In a meantime I crocheted some creations also :-) 

I made my humble boy as a custom order. I still love this creation so much. And I hope, that the my sweet customer will like it too :-)

I just have to make another pumpkin owl. Just because I love it! This one is ready to ship :-)

And my dreaming owl I created as an ornament and packaged it as a gift to one of the order :-)

And one of my baby owl as a brooch on the baby carriage :-), flew yesteraday to her new home already.

So my dears, 
I wish happy and successful new school year for your kids and enough patience and strong nerves for you! :-) I will write the update soon.
