Cross Stitch-Floral Tea Cup


I am getting more interest in Cross Stitch these days. Before,I stayed back from this technique because of the strain it caused to my eyes. Then,it was like,I used to stitch continuously for hours. Now I don't sit like that and I do many things hand in hand. That's more fun!! The latest one on Cross Stitch, Floral Tea Cup, the stitching part is done. Now I need to get it framed. This lovely pattern you can find it here. I changed the colours slightly, but not huge difference, a bit brighter than the actual.. I love it that way!!
We are travelling to our home town today and will be back after weekend. Wishing everyone a very happy weekend!!

Crochet Hair Band

The hair band I was trying to make is complete now.Finishing the project is always a difficult thing for me. This time too.. I made the crochet lace and attached an elastic band at the end of it and wrapped the elastic with satin ribbon. I wanted to cover the elastic part with cloth as you see in other hair bands, but there was no matching material in my stash. I am not so happy with the finishing,but its okay, I am keeping this for myself. My hair conceals the satin lace part when I use this.So that's fine!!


The crochet lace pattern is from Crochetroo's Fan bookmark. I used Anchor size 20 crochet cotton in this lovely colour(don't know the number exactly).
That's all for the day

Pillow embroidery

Yesterday was Bharat Bandh by NDA, a protest against fuel price hike. Usually in Bangalore, Bandhs are not affected very much, but this time most people stayed indoors.My hubby went to office, their company is one among very few IT companies in Bangalore who worked yesterday!!So my day went as usual!!
I did some embroidery on a pillow case which showed up while I was cleaning my cup boards.Its in very pale pink colour and I embroidered this basket and flowers on it. I saved this pattern long time before and got this from Hoop love.

I used a pink and white double shaded thread here and some flowers came in white which was not clear on this pillow case.Wrong choice of thread!! To make it visible I gave a straight stitch with pink in between lazy daisy.In this pic that's not clear, in real white flowers has got a pink tint.:D When embroidering flowers , I have an affinity towards pink especially when I stitch lazy daisy.Every time, I decide to embroider with some other colour, but usually ends up with some shades of pink.No issues as long as it adds beauty!!
