New Beginnings In Crafting and Blogging

How much happy can you be when receiving a parcel? I was immensely happy and excited. This was lying on my bed when I came back home two days ago - a parcel from Pony Craft Store! Well, I knew it had to come as once again I was making an order together with my D, but still, it was like another gift for me, a Christmas gift:)
Not to stretch more the waiting, here is what was in the parcel - all colorful and useful. Seeing one of the latest Sangeetha's posts, where she expressed her wish to learn Tunisian crochet, I knew that it was exactly what I also wanted to learn! So now I'm a proud owner of a 3.5 mm Tunisian crochet hook (the top most of the picture). I also ordered a  4.5 mm  aluminium hook with plastic handle (top left of the picture).
 Speaking of other special items in the parcel, these are the row counters. I still slightly doubt whether they are used for crochet or not, but they were too cute and too cheap not to purchase them.
And these are beautiful crystal head pins!
 The split ring markers were bought with an aim of marking amigurumi stitches. Let's see if it works.
 Oh yes, this is a very very special tool for me - a tatting shuttle. I hope to learn tatting  some day too, it will be easy when having the necessary supplies.
I have even more happiness and love to share. I got my  third (!) Liebster award! This time from Nata who has a nice blog Nata's Nest, picturing her passion for crochet and other homely things. Thank you so much for choosing me, Nata! :). Moreover I'm very glad to get more and more blogger friends each day, as it makes me feel connected to the world.

Congratulations on your award, and thanks for including me...I have some running around to do this weekend, but will include it in one of my next posts, for sure. Have a wonderful weekend - XOXO Tanya

    1. Hi, Sangeetha! Thanks and it is so so much fun to get something by post!
      Let's see, tatting seems to be quite a tiny craft, needs loads of patience.
      Have a great weekend!

  13. Oh, I like those pins very much (I was just wishing for some new pins today). And the row counters - if you make a sweater or an afghan they could be very useful.

    Have fun with Tunisian crochet - there are some wonderful patterns out there. :)

    1. I don't know why but many people liked the pins:) Actually, that's why I bought them too - just liked them.
      I've learned the basic stitch so far, but already can't wait to crochet some simple item.

  18. Congrats on your award!
    When I came to know about pony craft store, some 3months back, I greedily ordered the entire crochet hook range :) it is good to have the set as you sometimes never know which needle size is perfect as we all generally buy yarns of various thickness. I too got that tatting shuttle and tried basic stitches with help of online video tutorials. But didn't make any progress later. Enjoy!

  19. Wow Anna that's wonderful... I too had purchased the tatting needle from pony with a wish to learn it someday. The day hasn't arrived in the last 3 years :( But I am hopeful and determined. Happy new year :)
