Bed Linen-Progress

A quick update on the progress on my WIP. I have completed six flowers in the row, 7 more to go. I like the lavender flowers on yellow background.. Its giving a calm and peaceful look. Dont you think so? This week I dont think I get time to sit and embroider, so hopefully somewhere in November I will be able to finish this project..

So till next time
Take care

Small Creations

Hi Everyone,
As told in my previous post, I started working on a bed linen, but the progress is very very slow because of back pain which made me to stop working on it for some days. May be this week I resume that. So here I am coming up with some small creations which I did sometime back but did not blog yet..

A coaster which I did recently.Actually my plan was to make a doily, but while watching its progress I decided better to keep it as a small coaster rather wasting thread and time. LOL!!!

Another coaster done with crochet..This one was done long time back while learning crochet.

And my glass painted pots..I bought 3 plain pots and glass painted it with yellow,red and green.I painted the pot inside by pouring paint into it and rotating the pot. I'm glad with the outcome.

Thats all for now. Hope you enjoyed the visit!!Until next time..
Take care..

Tatted Bookmark

Yesterday while browsing I found a cute and simple pattern for a bookmark. I was planning to make some bookmarks for a long time, so I thought I'd make one with this pattern. Blue is my favourite colour, so I used light and darker shades of it in size 40 crochet thread.I made a slight variation to the original pattern, but not of much difference.

I'm very happy with the outcome.I love it..
Till next time
Take care and have a nice day!1

Show Off!!

Here I come up with some Long Stitch which were done some years ago. I really enjoyed doing these,then. These were made up from Anchor Long Stitch Kits. All framed!! Just showing it off as I dont have any new finishes now...
A cute Teddy bear,this one is a small design as compared to the other below.

The beautiful Red house design was the first one finished,that was in 2003. The photo is not clear, but It was really an accomplishment for me when completed this.

And here 's the last one framed.

I've two kits in my hand which were gifted by a friend. Sometime before I started with one of it. And this is its current state .I dont know when I 'm going to re start it. Currently its an 'Unfinished Object'.

Hope everyone having a good time.
Till Next time,

New Project

Hmm.. Long Time.. 'cos of holidays here.. Was totally busy with family, friends, trips ..It was fun and had a great time..Now back again to normal life.. :D
I started a new project yesterday.Its embroidery on a bed linen. I have got a nice yellow sheet and 2 pillow covers. I chose a very simple flower pattern eventhough I wanted a large intricate design.(I dont wan it to be a five year plan :D) I traced the pattern on to the fabric and started embroidery on the pillow covers. The colors I've chosen are lilac and green.

Chain stitch is used almost exclusively.French knots in the centre of the flower.Light and dark shades are used for flower. For the bed linen, I repeated this motif from one end to another edge of the sheet.For pillow, its on the centre of the pillow.

Till next time.. take care..
