Quiet weekend

First day of spring ......

A very BIG thank you for all the front-line workers who are working tirelessly to keep us safe, at this critical time.

Past few days staying home from work, I had time to work on my creative pieces. I bought few tee shirts from the thrift store which I cut into strips, they add a different texture. I am also adding pieces of velvet,felt and other thick yarn.

quiet moment....the new normal

Learning something new...

first piece

While browsing you-tube I came across rug hooking videos and, several tutorials (not many left hand ones though) later I made my first small piece.

For my second piece, I sketched a more detailed pattern. I am experimenting with different types of textures. So far, I have used bits and pieces of yarn, felt, velvet and, t-shirt material.

Scrap quilt is coming long..

 Today there was beautiful sunshine, for me to spend some time with my projects.

January creative makes ...

I finished the jute piece.

I have not yet thought about how I want to complete the sides and, if I want to make in to a wall hanging. 

Sewing a memory map : inspiration for this piece is from Pinterest. It has so many wonderful ideas.

I stitched a small potion of my childhood village. While sewing the road that leads to home, it brought back so many memories.

I have few more map ideas, now that I want to experiment with.

Thank you for stopping over,
Until next time,
