I'm still looking for the best look for the website, so it's "work in progress" - while everything functions right, design could change until it wil look "yay, that's it!" for me.

Playing with colors
I see "trendy" pastel shades (dirty white, gray, dirty light blue, dirty gray etc.) every day and it makes me feel "gray" myself. Believe or not, but it's so hard to buy something not "gray"... So my appliques are my way to make things more colorful.
Mostly I work with cotton Turkish and Egyptian mercerized "perle" cotton thread. It's soft and silky. But if needed I can work also with other yarns - both natural and syntethic.
I can't buy my yarns "in bulk" (too expensive and I would not have place to keep them), so every week I go to "yarn treasure hunt" - there are 4 or five different yarn stores (small ones) to visit. Sellers in these stores already know me - we are like good friends ;) And that's great - they know, that I'm looking for, so, if there is something new, they always tell me and sometimes give me nice discount :)
For my crocheted beads I use natural wood beads - they are not polished or varnished - it's just pure wood shape.
Each bead, applique and doll clothing piece is made by my hands - stitch by stitch. Crocheting is quite time consuming. For example, I can make ~6-8 beads per hour (or 4-5 appliques).
