White Doily

Hey all,
Coming up with the Doily I have been working on.Its a White Doily and quite large enough. I started this about two weeks before and the progress was very gradual. That's my motto when I take large Doilies.

I used Anchor Crochet Cotton,size 20 in pure white for this Doily. Crocheting the initial rounds of this Doily was slow and while moving to the final rounds the progress was really fast.That's how I felt.

The pattern is by Cylinda Mathews and I find it a very clever pattern with some interesting designs onto it. Looking the final product,I felt like the pattern for 'athappoo' or Pookalam, we put for Onam.:) Anyway, happy with the outcome and I got an appreciation from my hubby that its neat. Very rare I hear something like that from him, he is my biggest critic. :) :)


Thats all for now.
Till Next time
Take care

Doilies again..


Hi,
I am in a gift making mode now. We are visiting our native next month,and I am planning to give my aunts some gifts.Actually they were asking me for "gifts" since last year!!So I'm making some Doilies for three of them. I think Doily is the best idea for me that works with this time limit.
I made two more Cutie Pie doilies,this time in red and green, I feel like Christmas!! Actually first I made one Red Doily, then I thought of making two more and attach them lengthwise to make like a runner.Again, change of mind,use two colours. like Red-Green-Red. And after making Green Doily,..u know.. repeating the same pattern so many times make any person bored :D That's what happened to me too. So the whole idea is on hold.Anyhow I have some doilies right now on my gifting account.And one more in making.I am crocheting this pattern now.Happy Happy :)
So that's all for the day!!
Till next time

Cutie Pie Doily

Hello all,
Being a very health conscious person,I was taking rest for some days.I dint indulge too much into my crafty craziness and I'm back now.
I started with something very easy and I love making Doilies. And this is what I made,My Cutie Pie Doily. This is a very quick finish,I used anchor variegated thread (Shade No 01208).And it looks really cute with the shaded thread!!I'm making some more with the same pattern.


And then, I blocked some snowflakes I made.

The other two I don't have the pattern link right now.If I get it I will update it here.

Thats all for now.
Till Next time

My Space

Hey all,
All settled after some super busy days,but I must say it was wonderful!! My brother and family was here with us for some days. Had good time with them especially with my niece.She is 20 months old now, started talking, and wanted me to play with her.Loved it!!.When they left, both of us felt that silence at home :( Otherwise we woke up daily hearing her screaming for 'milk'.
A cousin's marriage was there in between,and many of our family members came to Bangalore to attend that.Some of them took special interest and visited our home too.What more to say??Enjoyed totally!!
They all left on Monday and from Tuesday evening I felt severe pain on my neck and was unable to move at all. :( Sad ending!!Don't know what happened,but now I'm feeling much better. I was on proper rest coz I hate(afraid of) going to a doctor/hospital.I really hate it!!
And last two days, with nothing to do other than 'holding my neck straight', I planned some new projects. All gifts which I postponed till date. I had this plan to give some gifts to 2 of my friends on their birthday. [They support and criticize me very much.In fact,most of the time they usually check my blog first as soon as I update it.]But I couldn't make it on time and now its going to be 2 months after their birthday. Better late than never!! I thought I'll give it a start and I can give them some Christmas gifts this year!!LOL

I'm going to make table mats,I decided the pattern,colours etc and I need to start with it soon. maybe after 2 days!!Also you can see the snowflakes in making!!I have some more gift plans, but blog abt that later!!yes later..
Until next post
Take care
