Last Post of 2010

Hope everybody had a very happy Christmas!!This time it went so fast for me!! We made a very short trip to home to celebrate Christmas and came back in town on Monday. Today again going home to celebrate New Year and to attend some Weddings and there is a chance to meet some of my good old college friends too!!I am looking forward to it. And so this is going to be the last post of 2010. And I have something to show you too.A Pretty Cushion !!


I made this envelope cushion cover some weeks before and wanted to blog , but time did not allow me. This is a part of learning sewing and it came much more neat than my previous attempt. Embellished with some Crochet flowers!!

I planned some more things to do before Christmas but couldn't, the whole December went too fast!!Hope in 2011 I can make that up. Looking back, the year was pretty good!!Start of 2010, I took some resolutions and when I look into my Diary now I have a lot of tick marks there. That's a good feeling!!

So before winding up the post,
'If your thoughts can make you sad, your thought can make you happy too.Choose your thoughts on the way you want to feel'
On this thought, Wishing all readers a very happy 2011 filled with lots and lots of happiness,peace, prosperity and fun!!

Merry Christmas!!



"An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:9-12

                         No time for a big post,Off to native place tomorrow to celebrate Christmas with family, before that wishing all readers a very Happy Christmas!!

Cross Stitch Edged Hand Towel

Two more gifts are done!!This time I added some luxury to the usual hand towel with a touch of cross stitch to make it special and a good gift!!I love the combination of blue and white especially on cross stitching. The pattern is adapted from the snowflake pattern by Nima. I am very much happy with the stitching part, it came out so neat, but sewing part I was happy until my hubby told me the mistakes, that too at the first sight!!
The green cross stitch is a simple one, just made a zigzag with full cross stitch(I am not sure whether its called full cross stitch,this was taught in school in the weekly stitching class!!). I wanted to do another snowflake pattern on green towel too,but there was no chance to get a pattern at that time.My Internet connection was down from Tuesday evening and to top it our desktop crashed!! where I used to save all patterns!! Without any option , I made my own design :D
Overall I am happy with both my creations especially blue one. And before leaving, Thanks to all those who are visiting my small space and an extra thanks to those who take time to make a comment on!! And extra extra thanks to everyone who started following me on my FB Page. You all make me feel special!!
That's all for the day!!
Wishing you a very happy weekend!!
