My New Hook

This Summer is so beautiful and so at home :) Caring about kids and plants, hooking with new ideas.
The newest one Oversized doilies :

These doily rugs are perfect for deck, especially linen rugs for wooden deck:

One I've made of weather resistant rope, which usually is used by fishermans and sailors. I guess this bright rug is able to survive Lithuanian Summers and Winters:

OT: šakotis

A short off topic :)
Last weekend me with my mom and friends baked traditional Lithuanian Šakotis in our back yard.

When I was a teenager, my parents used to bake these beautiful big cakes for weddings, other big feasts. My sister and I were their helpers. I've separated thousands of egg whites from the yolks those days :)))
Few years ago, we revived old big cooking equipment, but it seemed too big. So my husband have made a small outdoor "grill" suitable to make Šakotis. Loooots of eggs, butter, sugar, work and we had a beautiful delicious result:

Shoemaking is an old craft, but industrial massproduction supersedes it. Still crafty enthusiasts revives it :)
Local oldshool factories of shoe lasts and soles are tethering on the brink of closure. Feltmakers are a great support for them nowadays as their creations are getting more and more popular in all over the world. I joint to this by selling production of these factories in My Etsy shop Rasae . Through this I meet a lot of interesting people, who are my customers in supplies shop section. One of them is Sharon Raymond from US, she says: "I think every village needs a shoemaker, I hope you'll be the one for yours!" Visit her blog with lots of tips and ideas of shoemaking: and her Etsy shop with shoemaking tutorials: and her youtube chanel. This is her tutorial to show how to make leather shoes using my soles:

Thank you Sharon!
