Orange saree quilt



 
I started this saree quilt, in August of 2017 and, after more than a year of stitching, I have finally manged to complete it. 

The only things that are left to be done now,  to sew up the yarn ends on the backing


and, to add blanket stitch around the border.




... to finally see it spread on the  bed, is both a joy and a relief! 



...... my needles need a little break 


I do appreciate you stopping by,

till next time,

Toadstool ..

pincushion....


I found the dainty ceramic container among thimbles at my neighbourhood church's fall jumble sale, few weeks ago.  At first, I thought it was a thimble but looking at it closely, it does not appear to have the shape of a thimble, also it is heavy. It is about 3cm tall, has a lovely design of bunnies, butterflies and bees. While, I do not know what it is used for ......



..I made another pincushion.






Autumn coloured crocheted scarf....

I found the pattern on this crochet designer's blog.  http://shropshirescrappersuz.blogspot.com/2017/09/circle-of-life-skinny-scarf.html
There are number of other free patterns to you like to check it out.

I used  lots of odds and ends from many types of yarn and, tried best to match the colours.







hat was for a friend of mine, she liked it a lot.



my attempt to take a selfie, to show the scarf..:) but could not capture well. 






join me for a warm cup of tea !!


Thank you for taking time to stop by,

Kantha stitching




I came upon this poster, left to be picked up by the recycling truck few weeks ago outside my building. And, it inspired me to start this stitching.



I added other details to my piece; basket with flowers, wrapped gift, and puffs of smoke.


I think I should add, part of the other leg as well to complete the picture.


I am still not sure how I want the background done.





Thank you for taking time to stop by,

till next time,

Stumpwork portrait -Frida Kahlo

My attempt ..


I am pleased with the colour choices, I made. However, I could have made the details on her face bit more cleaner.






This piece of printed fabric is from the One Dollar store, and I am filling it up in and around the prints, just want to see how it will be.





Thank you for stopping over,


stay a bit longer and enjoy a cup of tea :)

Stumpwork portrait....

made this weekend..


I noticed that I did not add eye lashes to her, after I took the pictures. I will add them later. I tried adding a hat, but it did not come out as well as I hoped for so I took it out. A hat will be for the next portrait for sure.




This little piece of tree shaving I found while walking in the park. Do you like the after picture? It is about 3 inches long.





Will you join me for a warm and sweet cup of tea ....

Thank you for stopping over,

till next time,
