Off late, Etsy has kept me on my toes.Orders, making new products, reading reading and more reading .. I hardly get time to crochet .. :(

Getting to learn a lot and one of which is, how to add any etsy treasury to your blog or webpage.
I had been searching for this since ages and finally have found it at the most obvious place.

In case you all are looking for it :

I came across a major hurdle in shipping which I am still half way through. Shipping from Germany is relatively simple for small goods but this is the first time I shipped to Australia and am facing problems.
Once the package is shipped to Australia, it is completely out of site. I am awaiting reply from my customer.If any of you all have faced similar issues please share.

I am getting ready with the upcoming autumn/winter time and am uploading some of my thick wool collections.

A nice warm orange pair of booties, a good Halloween collection.

Happy Crocheting !!!

A rememberable week!

Hello!!!! The last week had been a roller coaster ride and am still recovering from the hangover!!! ;)

I desperately needed a vacation, so decided to accompany my husband on one of his work trips. This one was one of my favourite places in Germany, the gorgeous city of Konstanz. The beautiful corner of Germany which borders Switzerland and touches Lichenstein and Austria. Unfathomable beauty on all sides !!!
We could  still see the snow covered tops on the opposite side of the Swiz Alps.

Sitting by the calm and pristine lake of Konstanz, I kept wondering about my crochet works, internet and if I could browse online, when I suddenly heard some flapping sound on the water. In the far distant waters, there was a bevy of swans fluttering their wings to fly. They flew low for a while and stopped... A herd of swanlings with their parents passed by, then a huge balloon flew right over us, the cool shade of the tree soothed us surpassing any air conditioner made by man and the wonderful misty breeze and soon I lost track of what I was thinking. It is amazing how much of beauty there is in nature and with the internet and computers we are so hooked onto them that we often ignore the outside wonders of nature.

Anyways hours flew by in almost a flash and we had to return.

On the way back I decided to just see how my etsy shop was doing and something inside me wanted to see some change and voila ... there it was... a sale.. my tweety birds were ordered. Rejuvenated, entertained, enthralled by the beauty of nature and full of energy, I came back and started with the completion of my order. Packing clay is always a tricky thing, but managed to get plenty of bubble wrap and packed it all up. 

As if the surprise and fun was not enough, my wonderful fellow blogger nominated me for the Liebster award. Thank you once again Joy for the nomination !!!

So after all the excitement, finally got to play with my wool and made some sweet little baby girl and baby boy shoes.

All in all, sometimes a trip is all we need !!! ;) Happy crocheting.

Coming soon !!!

crochet high tops, crochet sneakers,crochet booties for boys

Life aint a bed of roses, but thorns are what make you stronger.

Aah  melancholy!!! Just having to face a number of problems at the same time this month so feeling grey... Anyway, everything in life is just a phase and never lasts long.. So we move on and paint them blue, violet, purple, ............

So coming to crochet,I got  hooked onto booties once again and started making some sneakers for a change.Must say some written patterns are confusing and extremely long and might be due to my lack of concentration, got bored following other patterns and ended up with my own !!! This is the first time such a thing happened to me..Anyways after a long time, which felt like eons, I had my ' Eureka ' moment.

I must say that I have been lazy, oops!!! Have used Double crochet instead of single or half double crochet, since the wait was too long.. Shame on me !!! Luckily this aint the finished product , which is evident from the upside down laces.Hehe.. ;) It is a prototype for the finished product but seems like I am on the right track..

Will be finishing with the finished product and show you all soon!!! Happy crocheting..

Feast your eyes and let me know what you all think about it!!!
