Ubuntu CAL with Dedri Uys

It’s being that time of the year, exciting one. When a new Scheepjes CAL is coming! CAL’s (crochet-a-longs) have become extremely popular recently. And not only because it’s fun to crochet together with people from all over the world – to get help and support if needed. But also because when we join the CAL we get this special feeling of belonging. Belonging to a bigger (much bigger!) crochet community of friendly, crafty and dedicated people. Every CAL hosted by Scheepjes is a very exciting event! And this year is not an exception. And – yay! – this year’s designer is Dedri Uys! A legendary person in many ways, and the creator of epic blanket Sophie’s Universe. Which was actually the first CAL of this kind, launched back in 2015.

As you know I am honored to be one of the official Scheepjes bloggers. Today we are the team of 17 people including a mystery Simy Somer, a creative director of Scheepjes. We call ourselves The Tribe. And we ARE the tribe, indeed. Supportive, friendly and sharing. We chat every single day and share our ideas, concerns, fears and success. But even being so close to each other we have absolutely NO idea what the next CAL will be. And who is the designer. :)

When approximately a month ago Dedri posted a sneak peek of her Ubuntu blanket, my jaw dropped down. I suspected something was going behind the scene, but I couldn’t even imagine what a beauty would come out. Though, knowing Dedri, who would hesitate she would come up with a masterpiece again. So ta-dah! Here is Ubuntu CAL by Scheepjes and Dedri Uys. And we begin on September 12th, 2018.
Ubuntu CAL (crochet-a-long). #Free crochet pattern by Dedri Uys, and Scheepjes

Ubuntu – (n) the belief that we are defined by our compassion and kindness towards others.

You’ll find complete information about the idea behind the blanket, materials needed and kits on Dedri’s website HERE. Some stores already have the kits for presale, but officially they will go live on August 22nd, 2018 (or around this date). So if you want to have a kit you might need to hurry up and “book” one for yourself – now! As no doubt they will be sold out fast! Please, support Dedri and purchase the kits via link on her blog. As she might receive a tiny compensation for each purchase, while for you it will not cost a penny. But before you jump to Dedri’s blog to read everything, I would like to share something personal. About me and Dedri.

We got acquainted virtually three years ago. At the time her Sophie’s Universe CAL was running. But I started to follow her blog earlier, and Dedri was number one among my crochet idols (and she still is). Later the same year I was honored to join Scheepjes team, and I got the chance to know Dedri personally.

I don’t know how I sound on my blog and what you think about me as a person. As every blogger, I might have a certain “image”, or something… I don’t know. And when I met Dedri for the first time, she appeared not the same as I had been imagining her for 2 years. She was, like, different! Alive :) and very human. I am a total introvert and for me it’s difficult to get along with new people. And Dedri made everything possible for me to feel comfortable. And I fell in love with her. Again!

“Ubuntu” CAL is about spreading love and friendship. It’s about support to each other… And this is all about Dedri.

Right now I am trying to save a small homeless puppy I found in the streets of Minsk (in Belarus – my home country). Her name is Milana, she has not found a new home, yet. But I believe we will be a success. You can read Milana’s story HERE, and maybe help, if you wish. When I shared her picture with my Scheepjes Tribe, Dedri fell in love with Milana, and even wanted to adopt her. Unfortunately her landlords came back with a long list of requirements which means Milana cannot travel to UK. But these three days of waiting for their reply were filled with hope. And strong feeling I was not alone. That there was someone out there, in the bigger world, caring as much as I did. And it was Dedri…

Come and join us for Ubuntu CAL. And let’s spread a little bit more of love and caring to the world.

Save Milana! A story of one life

…It has been silent on my side for a while… Grinda MAL is going on and last part of the pattern will be published tomorrow. But today I would like to share something which is not related to crochet. Something that hurts to the bottom of my heart. Something that should not happen at all. You might have noticed that I’ve been away from online life. My Facebook and Ravelry groups feel a bit lonely and abandoned. I am sorry for that. But these days I can’t stop thinking of a small puppy. Who has none in the world except of me. And my new friend Oksana. 

 

Save Milana!


We called her Milana. Milana is approx. 3-4 month old. I found her in the street under the hard rain in Belarus and just couldn’t leave her along. She is in temporary home at the moment getting ready for vaccinations and chip implantation. And in a month she will be ready to move into forever home if I manage to find any.

She is a lovely puppy. Very happy and playful. And very lonely, too… In fact she has none in the world except of me and Oksana. And we are hoping to find her the most loving and responsible parents.

Milana’s temporary home is a paid one, and together with food, bed, vaccinations and travel cell there are lots of expenses. If you would like to support Milana and other homeless dogs and cats in Belarus, please donate now using the button below. All money we collect will be directed to help Milana find a new home. And to other rescued animals in need. Every cent will help! And thank you in advance for your support!





 

My love and my pain


I have lived in the Czech Republic for 10 years already. But originally I am from Belarus. I love this country. I was born here and grew up. Almost all my close friends live here. And my parents, too. I come to Belarus every year to see my family and spend one month with my friends. And during every visit to Belarus I see the same thing. Lots of homeless animals in the streets…

Belarus is situated in the center of Europe. Belarusian people are very open, kindhearted and generous. They don’t live rich and very happy life, and many are struggling on the edge. Because salaries are low, and prices go up literally every month.

And animals are struggling, too. There are lots and lots of homeless animals in Belarus. In Minsk (the capital) you can see them every day. Cats’ families live in the yards of milti-apartment houses. Some people feed them, some people beat them… But sooner or later they die: hit by the car, because of diseases, hunger or cold.

There are lots of homeless dogs, too. Some of them were born in the street, but many were kicked out from their homes by former owners. The reasons are very simple: “The dog grew up too big and we can’t take care of her”, “The dog eats too much and we can’t feed her”, “We are moving to a new appartment and we don’t want the dog because she can ruin (chew, spoil) it”. And then the dog goes to the street not understanding what is happening and why she can’t come home again.

Some animals are thrown away from the windows of the cars – in remote places. Just to make sure they will not find way back home. And then the dogs are sitting for days, and weeks on the same place hoping for owners to come back. And this in not just one or two stories. This is what happens literally every day.

Why not to give animals to shelters, you may ask. And the answer is very simple. There are NO state SHELTERS in Belarus!! In Minsk we have just one place where people can bring their own animals or animals they found in the street. Cats and dogs are kept there for a week (if there are free cells – they can stay up to a month or two, but this happens rarely), and then if none wants to adopt them – they are killed! With huge sufferings… And just to mention, if the animal is brought while there are no free cells at all – it is killed just after it enters the “shelter”.

Infections, lack of vaccination, dirt, no proper food, no proper beds. Dogs and cats are dying from freezing in winter and from the heat in summer. They all are VERY scared. Waiting for their last chance. That someone will come and save them… More than that, some clinics started to buy dogs from this “shelter” for their medical (cruel) tests. And usually the most calm and kind dogs are chosen, because it’s easier to deal with them…

There is a small group of volunteers who are trying to help poor animals. They invest their own time and money to buy vaccinations, cure, spay/neuter animals and find them temporary or forever homes. Very often the count is just for a few hours or days… and ordinary people just continue to throw their pets away as useless garbage. Every. Single. Day.

I can’t keep crying while I am writing this. And this is something that should not happen at all. In Belarus there is no proper legislation against cruelty towards animals. So anyone can bring them harm (or even kill) and the punishment will be very light. Just a small fine maybe…

Milana could be one of them. But we saved her. And we hope she will find a forever home soon!!

If you would like to help homeless animals in Belarus, please, donate now by clicking the button below. Every cent matters. All money will be given to Milana or volunteers who are helping homeless animals in Belarus (to vaccinate, spray/neuter dogs and cats to give them a chance to find new home). If you would like to adopt a cat or a dog from Belarus, please, write me a message via contact form on my blog. And I will put you in contact with volunteers. ...Or maybe you would like to adopt Milana?!





Thank you!




Grinda MAL: Part 4 (English US)

Grinda MAL is slowly moving to its end, and today is week 4 already! Thank you very much for posting pictures of your beautiful creations. Many shawls have been finished already, but I also know that many of you follow the MAL week by week. Today’s Part 4 is about hearts. The hearts symbolizing love for small Grinda island in Stockholm Archipelago.

A visit to Grinda is like stopping the earth from rotating for a little while.

Grinda is a charming destination for the whole family. The island, also a nature reserve, is owned and managed by the Archipelago Foundation. There are nice and child-friendly bathing areas at both the southern and northern steamboat piers. The island also has several beautiful viewpoints. Take a stroll and enjoy the tranquility and nature. Grinda is serviced daily by several ferries. Welcome to Grinda. (sourse - grinda.se)

Grinda island is situated further in the sea, but still not too far for a one-day trip. Depending on the ferry schedule you can get there in just two hours. And then many more hours to enjoy silent walks in the woods and among huge stones, listening to the sea and being just yourself.

If you are using paid pdf please note that chart for Part 4 was updated.

Grinda MAL: Part 3 (English US)

Hello and thank you for joining Grinda MAL. We are slowly approaching third part and I hope you are doing great! Today the pattern will slightly change and we will be building “polka dots”, or large islands. One of them is Vaxholm, often referred to be a capital of Stockholm Archipelago.
Grinda MAL: Part 3. Free #crochet pattern by www.lillabjorncrochet.com

Vaxholm is just in hour’s ferry ride from Stockholm, and it’s truly a very popular tourist destination. The island is lovely with beautiful houses, calm beaches and lots of cafes and restaurants. We spent long hours here: my husband with a book and me with crochet.
