Its Strawberry Time!!


Yeah, Its strawberry time!!I made these beautiful strawberries in crochet.A few days back Nima asked me to test this pattern, I was very happy to do it and the pattern came out good.But it was not in usual strawberry colour,I dint have enough red/green thread with me.

This was my creation.lol!!When she blogged about these strawberries,I couldn't resist myself from making some. I did some thread shopping last week and here are my strawberries!!They are very beautiful!!Thanks Nima, for sharing the pattern!!

For first time I crocheted with 2 threads hand in hand.It was tricky but after 2-3 trials I got it right.Other than that the pattern was really easy.A quick finish.Nima is giving away this pattern and today's the last date.Visit her blog for more details. I used Anchor knitting cotton for making this. I'm making some more of it.
That's all for now.
Till Next time

Snowflake-1

Yesterday I did a good shopping on crochet/Tatting threads(my stash was almost empty!!).I found a good store in Bangalore to buy it, but very far from the place I stay.
I've this plan of making snowflakes for Christmas. I'm dreaming of a white Christmas tree.I already have some with me,but that's not enough!!And after a long time, I took my tatting shuttle and this is the snowflake I tatted.

And many more to go!!But that's all for now. Its been a very busy and stressful week.And tomorrow is also a busy one.Anyway Wishing everyone a very Happy Weekend.

Flower Hair Clips

Hello all,
Many people asked me what did I do with those crochet flowers. Well,I sent some to Lakshmi on her request.I'm waiting to see what she's going to make with them. I had a few left and first thing came to my mind was hair clips for my dear niece.I bought some hair clips and glued these flowers onto them.



I saw picture of similar hair clips made by my friend for her niece on FB.That was long time back. Me and my SIL liked it very much but our cute lil girl dint have that much hair to flaunt with it..In fact she was a 'motta'(bald).I was waiting for her hair to grow and and now I think she has enough hair to hold these clips!!:D I so wish!!Anyway,My brother and SIL very well appreciates my gifts for them especially for their lil girl!and that's the happiest thing!!They are visiting us next week.

That's all news for now.
Till next time

Cross Stitch-Berries

I love strawberry patterns as much as I love floral!!This pattern is again one of my fav.Very quick and easy design. Very cute too.. Here's the finished piece.

I put the finished piece in this wooden frame and it looks perfect!!

I framed my other finished cross stitch-floral tea cup too. I bought these two frames last week for a sale, not for this intention but to keep photos.When I got it home, I just thought of an alternative.

And before signing off, Wishing every Malayalees a very Happy Onam!!

Glass Painting - 2


And the second one is also done.Here I used water based colours all except for that orange part. I couldn't get the water based orange color anywhere near by my place and first time I used solvent based one. I had a box of solvent based glass colours which were gifted by a friend. When I used that for the first time, the result was not too satisfactory..the colours were too light. But this time, so far its okay.. In appearance also it's not making much difference..What say?

And Nima is giving away the crochet strawberry pattern.Check her blog for more details.You're going to love it.

That's all for now.
Till next time,
Take care and have good time!!

Glass Painting-1



One of the glass paintings I started is done. I did not have enough colours with me. And I couldn't find any place nearby to buy one too. So I painted with what I had. I tried mixing colours to get the right colour I wanted and it can be seen very evidently in the whole painting. :( But in the pic it looks much much better!!

Till next time

Crochet Vase Cover


When this year started,I took a crafty resolution to learn crochet.I really tried my best to learn this and almost half way through. Now I got a feeling that Am I becoming a lil addictive to it? I don't know..I made a vase cover this week and it looks beautiful!!Started with a lavender color, when it came closer to finishing, I found the thread not enough.So changed color there to a sapphire green color and finished it off.A matching sheer ribbon is attached to it.The edging was out of sight when I put flowers in.
A snap of vase without flowers.This pattern is also from freepatterns with name 'Pineapple Ruffles'.Anyway,I am giving crochet some rest, I dont have enough threads in my stash. I never thought I'd be in a situation like this, that I want to do something and not enough thread.Have to pull out all those UFO's on embroidery and need to start finishing that off and I have a glass painting and cross stitch in progress too. Don't know when I can finish that off. This is a very busy month.
Until next time
Take Care and Have good time!!
