Summer flower....

I have seen many blogs have wonderfully edited and, watermarked pictures. I have been curious;wanted to try myself to see how it worked. My search led me to; an exciting website with numerous options.
I played around a bit to create this collage, while the effect is very appealing, the task of editing pictures for each and every post is bit tedious.  I am not the most tech savvy person!!

This is my newest crochet creation. I am sure you have seen plenty of these types of ornaments around the blogland, I am adding mine to that mix.

Saree quilt is coming along bit by bit ,as well the octagon throw.

It makes me really happy when you stop by,
thank you,

Octagonal motif throw ..(learning left hand crochet)

I am working on my newest crochet project.

I still do not know how large I want to make it yet. I did struggle with the joining the octagons, finally figured this would be the way to do it.


At the thrift store I found this russian doll for $3. It is about foot long, it did not have rest of the family inside, instead a collection of buttons. I do, however have another family to join it with.

This collection of  Anchor and DMC embroidery floss were $3.  

This weekend I also had the opportunity to visit the Art Gallery of Ontario to see the Frances Bacon and Henry Moore exhibit called 'Terror and Beauty'.  It was a wonderful experience; apart from the special exhibition there were huge amount of other art to see.  You need few hours to go through them all.

You stopped by to take a peek !!...... Thank you :)

till next time,
