Too much of things..

Its been a while! Hope you all are doing good! I was @home in Kerala for sometime and came back a few days before. Took sometime to settle in and get back to routine.Was on hangover! When I am at my home, I enjoy all the luxuries there, and try not to do the normal household works I normally have to do. Most of the time I will be busy chit chatting, travelling,meeting all relatives and all! This time, it was slightly different. Everyone was busy there and stressed out! I was staying at home most of the time and and I knew this would happen. So I took along my hobby kit to there. Now have so many things going on and none of these are completed yet!I was switching from one to another all the time.

The summer splendor doily in pretty pink,I was crocheting this during train journey. The pink thread is now over and I have a few more rounds left. Its a very bright pink and I don't have matching colours that look good with this. So probably I will block this without crocheting further!

Next is a cross stitch..This is from a book I own called Donna Kooler's Cross Stitch Inspiration. I started this somewhere last year and all I did was a one leaf. When I was on bed rest I gave this book to my cousin. Before leaving to kerala, she gave this back to me and I resumed stitching ,its not even halfway through!

Some hand embroidery going on! and on the background is snow doily with white beads in the corner which I got from an old chain of mine. Doily is complete,need to block it.

Can you see something crocheted in white. That's the Victorian Table Cloth Motif.I did 3 motifs now and its not for a table cloth!After coming back, before finishing any of these,I started something new. I always found difficult crocheting with yarn.All because I did not have the right hook. After trying out different size of hooks, I found one with I can crochet comfortably! And these some summer garden squares are born! Haven't decided what to do with them, but they wont go waste!

I don't know when I am going to finish all these, but I enjoyed doing all of it till this stage! It was really a stress buster.Today when I took all these to my table, I simply loved the look of this incompleteness and thought of blogging it.
So thats a long post and more than enough for one post!
Till I complete any of these
Take Care
