Embroidery Dreams

Posted on

When I was a little girl, I used to embroidery different patterns which my mother bought for me. The first one was a cute little puppy which was framed. My mother still keeps it hangs in the living room. Six months ago I had the pleasure to meet a new product and a new virtual friend (and a very real one since we both live in Israel). Orly creates a unique product (and she is a unique person). Product which I am sure you all will love. Orly prints embroidery patterns on canvas in a traditional technique and those patterns are so lovely you just can’t ignore them. As a nostalgic person, I really appreciate traditional crafts and Orly has a lot of respect to that tradition. I am not sure when I will find the time to do some embroidery work, but choosing my pattern in her Etsy shop was very easy. You can see it yourself here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/EmbroideryDreams?ref=seller_info_count

And if you want to see more pictures from this process you can follow her blog:

The rabbit – my favorite pattern. This pattern is a result of collaboration between Orly and another friend – Micush.

The pattern was made according to her illustraion.

My Wedding Necklace

Posted on

Ever since I returned to the craft fair, sleeping became a waste of time. Tuesday and Friday are a very exhausting days and in the end of them, I find myself trying to remember when I had a few minutes of quite (very rare). The rest of the week, I am with my children which leave not enough time to writing. Because I am sure you are not here to read the boring schedule of bussy mother, I want to show you some progress in my work.

Finally after planning, taking a picture (one after one…), I am pleased with the result. I have a new necklace for my bib collection necklaces. This collection has only few items, but each one makes a statement. A very simple dress and one of these necklaces and you will have a dazzling appearance. I think the mother of pearl stones is an excellent combination with the goldfilled wire and the satin ribbon.

And the winner is….

It took me a while, but finally after my child was sick and my baby (it was hard) and participating twice a week in craft fair, I want to announce the winner in my giveaway. I wrote all the names on small notes and asked from my child to pick one from a glass ball. I am not sure he understood why his mother chased him with a glass ball, but he was happy to pick a note. So the winner is Monica from Impressions of a Princes.

You can contact me on orithaddad111@hotmail.com to claim  your prize.

Since I was very busy in the last month, I didn’t get the chance to see what is going on the blog-o-sphere and read what you have all have been up to, and commenting. I will get back to each and every one of you.

Next post will be published very soon (I am feeling I have to fill some gaps) and until then I will give you a glimpse. I am working on a new/old necklace. This necklace is white.

For today post I have some amazng pictures and this is the story:

My father-in-low celebrated 80 years old  last month and we had to figure out which gift would be perfect for him. This was not easy at all since he is not the person who likes presents.

The answer was found in Ein Karem . This picturesque neighborhood in Jerusalem was our favorite place to travel in the last year. It seems like time has stopped here. A year ago we were walking through the narrow streets and we noticed a bench near one of the apartment. An amazing card of special studio for photography invited us to take a picture in antique style. My husband was impressed and a year later this was an amazing idea how to celebrate his father’s birthday.

We wake up early that morning as we had to pick up his father. In the studio we met the photographer which spent a long hour trying to fit the suitable dress for the early 20th century. For the adults is was fun, but for the children is was a bit boring and very quickly they become impatient. Taking the photo was exhausting since every child try to run out door. Here are some photos:

Not one of the best!!

Thanks to photoshop, we were able to get this picture:

I Need Some Help

Lately I was thinking to write another tutorial and add it to my PDF series. Because it takes a lot of time to write it, I found myself having doubts which item should be the next one.

The first one is for this ring:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This tutorial was massive project. I insisted to take a close up of every single stitch, this means 55 pictures!! Each picture was attached to comprehensive explanation not for knitting the correct stitch, but also the basic terms for crochet technique. I wanted to make the tutorial simple and easy to understand and follow so everyone could learn to make the ring. When I finally listed it, I was relieved and to my big surprise, I got good feedback.

When the good feedbacks continued, I was encouraged to write another one. This time I have decided that the crochet balls would be interesting item. Because you can make with them variety of earring and necklaces, it seems they are the perfect product.

The next item was wrapped earring. This tutorial is also focused on how to wrap with knitted wire.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I think that there is no need to write more on wrapping so I was wondering if the next tutorial should be on how to make this earring:

What do you think? Are this earrings suitable for my next PDF?

Amazing Sewing Project

The best present I got for Adi, my baby girl, was from my sister. As textile designer in profession she sewed an amazing baby toy which is designed as an elephant head and a very long body. The entire toy is sewed only from scraps as long tube. The toy can be used as amazing play ground which the baby can climb on it, push, pull and catch the loops my sister added. The entire project took a while and when I got it I was amazed.

The elephant head.  I love the ears.
