Happy Monday!

 Happy Monday!!Some embroidery done in between a lot of crochet especially doily making. This was an UFO which only needed half an hour of stitching to become a FO. But I always ignored it as I was not sure what to do with this once the embroidery part is complete! Today morning I got an idea to display this embroidery in the hoop itself. I rushed and completed the green part and fitted it on the hoop nicely. Its now displayed on the wall.I dint frame this,just pinned the rest of the fabric tightly behind the hoop so that if another idea strikes I can use this by removing all those pins. If anyone is interested in framing on the hoop, then check this tutorial.

This scene lifted my mood today!I invest a lot of time on balcony gardening these days! This is my second attempt to have a small garden in our balcony, first one I failed miserably and this time I am trying hard and desperately!its going OK but not with ease!Now a days what I do first thing when I wake up is checking my plants!Today morning, I saw this miniature dahlia in full bloom, it was such a joy! Simple pleasures of life!
Have a great week!
Till next time
Take Care
