Lavender lady


Every lady is hand sewn, and the skirt part is filled with lavender.  I, myself love the lingering fragrance of lavender in my closet.

Learning embroidery.... In this piece, so far I have learnt; double knot stitch and coral stitch.... 

For, certain stitches instructions does indicate to work from right to left; being left handed I do find bit difficult. After practicing from right to left, I tried and copied it to left to right which I think worked alright.

On crochet...  I have named this project Left-hander'sleft overblanket.. It too is coming along , and is on hold for the moment, as I have used up most the left overs.

Learning Embroidery..

Here is my completed piece..

I am pleased with my effort. I also see the places I could have done better. I was bit short of one of the green floss, and had to substitute with another green (in her dress). I think the difference does not appear to be too prominent.

I am continuing with my embroidery lessons ..there is a new project already planned.

I have made bit more progress in my chain stitch piece.. ..

I usually don't get to do much embroidery after work as it does require fine stitching, and night lighting is hard for my eyes (even with glasses). I mostly do these types of work during day light. So, it has got limited to the weekends.


It looks like that my crochet hook does not seem to catch a break.. I thought after the last project I would take break from crocheting, but it was not to happen.  Here's beginning of something new...with all the odds and ends that I have accumulated  since I started to learn crochet; which was just over 2 years ago.

For the past two years I have been buying yarn from the thrift store; often they are either half used, almost used or on a lucky day full. There are also lots of colours which have not made into any projects and I am trying to use them all  too. I am surprised at my collection of left-overs from left-overs :)
