At the end of September my shop was closed for a few days. I had a very good reason to close it – my baby girl – Sophie was born on 23rd of September! Everything went well and in a couple of days we were at home. Now I am getting used to be mom of 2! We are doing great during the day, but nights are still heavy… actually this night was the first one when we all could sleep more or less well… I think we are just getting used to each other… In any case it is such a joy to have this little girl with us… 🙂

In near future I will be slower with new designs, though I miss so much my hooks and yarn and for sure, as soon as Sophie will let me, I will be back with new projects and patterns. Maybe it will happen sooner than I think… 🙂
I any case you are welcome back to my Etsy shop and have a look at all my patterns I designed before! Have a great week!

Hello! I am a designer behind Mon Petit Violon brand. In this little space of mine I share unique, beautiful and inspiring projects and patterns. I am an author and recently my first book "Super Cute crochet for Little Feet" was released in UK, Germany, France, Estonia an other countries! US version is coming out in March. I was born in Riga, Latvia, but currently living in Italy with my husband and our two kids. I truly believe that crochet (and other crafts as well) make the world a better place!
