My guest today is Aldona. She runs Etsy shop with handknitted and felted designs.
Aldona, your shops are full of items made in different techniques (felted, knitted etc.) - which technique you like the best and why?
I can't say which technique I love the best, because it depends on my mood. Sometimes I can't stop felting and I do it day by day, sometimes I knit like a crazy. Very often I can't stop spinning even if it's late night already.
I love all handworks what I do: sewing, felting, knitting, spinning. I put all my love and good energy in my works. I believe that every thing you do, could bring good energy for person who will wear it. It is my credo - do all things only with love and this will return to you in some way.
Have you any "must do" plans for this year?
I have plenty of "must to do" plans :) First, I want to do many things and many changes in my summer house and garden. Also I need to finish some big projects for weddings - dresses for bride and bridesmaids. And of course I wish to do a lot of things in my Etsy shop. I really need a 48hour day!
What book have you read recently?
I love reading, but sometimes I have no time for this. Usually I try to read few pages before sleep. My favorite book which I had read a couple years ago is "Sinuhe the Egypt" wrote by Mika Waltari and now I'm reading his another book - "The Roman".
Aldona, what is the best about Lithuania, country where you come from?
I love everything in my country - wonderful nature, beautiful lakes and forests, fresh air. Sometimes I miss sun, but anyway, it is the best place for me. I grew up here, my family and all my friends are here. I love my garden and small wooden summer house near the Vilnius... Could I wish more in my life? :)
Thank you so much for your time! I wish you good luck!
I met Aldona in Vilnius few months ago and we decided to swap gifts :) I made two pairs of earrings, and she felted for me wonderful flower brooch. This is me and Aldona's brooch :)
