Few last months were hard on us, we both fell sick with some nasty flu, one of the little kitties that we took in before the winter cold fell sick too after sterilization, and were other troubles too, so I didn't even send the newsletter to our subscribers, because there was no news.
But Yanka kept working through all these hard times, looking for inspiration in books and ancient art, and first she created this MEDIEVAL LION KEEPSAKE BOX.
Click on the link or the picture to see more of it. I know that I'm a lousy photographer, but this little box really 'wanted to shine' and let me take pictures of it from every possible side and angle.
The second product is a new hoop art that I called 'Silent walk through fall forest in Japan', but we decided to shorten it and call this embroidery 'JAPANESE FOREST'.
When I look at it I feel joy and calmness, this bright, colorful embroidered painting looks almost three dimentional, and it makes me want to go for a nice, relaxed walk (if only in my dreams, we live in a big, busy and noisy city, so this embroidery hoop art is more like a window into another reality for me).
I think many of you can relate to my words above. We live in a hectic world, and we all need beauty in our life, the more the better.

Don't forget to tell you what do you think of Yanka's new products in the comments!
