The Best of 2019

2019 is counting its last days and it's time to look back at what has marked the year on the blog. 

These best offs  are a kind of an inequitable review because posts at the beginning of the year have an unfair advantage in regards to the  the posts made near the end of it, but nevertheless, here they are according to my stats.

The absolute winner this year is The Frida Kahlo brooch, closely followed by the Frida bag

The Art Brooches have charmed the internet beyond measure and I am quite thankful for all the love they have received. Equally loved were the Coral Necklace and the Margarita Sandals.

Among the most viewed were two patterns I retired this year - the African Flowers Bracelet and the Vintage Bib Necklace.

We beautified the summer with these 3 free crochet patterns (and one video): the Shells Necklace, the Ariel Bikini top and the Boho Clutch


We had the honor to be featured in 2 magazines this year and an internet site:  

The collaboration with the Sewing Box Magazine for which I created the Peacock Necklace and the interviews for the CraftBusiness magazine and Fakulteti.MK.

10th Blog Anniversary

Without realizing I missed my blog anniversary this past May, can you believe that? I always say I started blogging back in 2008, completely forgetting that I registered my blog then and started blogging later in 2009. So to mark the occasion  here are the top 3 with the most views:

1. The Fabric Carnation Tutorial with 119 356 views.

2. The Ruffly Scarf Tutorial with 115 639 views and 

3. The Larksfoot Stitch Demistified with 98 253 views.

Everything you create is so inspiring and beautiful. I also had my 10 year blogiversary in 2019. And to think when my cousin basically forced me to start one, I had no idea what it was or what I was doing. She stopped blogging not long after but I've been here all these years and made so many friends. Happy new year!
