Winter scarf (left hand knitting)


Double seed stitch

Finally, completed the scarf I started, past winter. This Madelinetosh,  hand dyed yarn was a gift from a friend. It is so soft, and easy to work with too.



I made an attempt to add a crochet edging. I did not follow the pattern exactly as it was given, but I am happy with the result.

Last few weekends I also spent time trying out a collage. I used two separate photos and mixed into a one picture : made use of lots of old magazines, acrylic paint and varnish medium. 




Thank you for stopping by for a peek,

Kantha work


A small reversible quilt

I started this quilt, in summer of  2013;you can see it here  It took to the bottom of the craft pile as my new found enthusiasm for crochet grew, and I spent more time trying out different crochet related projects. But, I did not give up on this piece, when ever I felt the need for break from other projects I went to work on it.



Recently, I came across the quilt again, and rather tossing it back, I made a promise to myself to finish it,and was true to my word.


I notice that stitches after a lapse of time has a different rhythm than the previous ones. I also ran out the thread (colours) I started with.


 Although, repetitive stitching at times can be monotonous(atleast for me), the results can be surprising.


Thank you for taking time to stop by ,
