Update on a Thursday...


I have almost completed the applique part of the spring saree quilt. But, there quite a lot of stitching still to do. I would like to see it finished, at least by the end of spring; if not it will be 'summer' quilt.

The small embroidery piece is also coming along. 



On crocheting..
I made a wallet, inspired by this pattern that I came across in one of the "Crochet" magazine, it is from spring of 2012.



I followed the stitch pattern but changed the assembly part of it. I stitched the both sides and made it a pouch like, also opted out the inside pocket panel. I want mine to hold all sorts of membership and rewards cards that I have, the one I have been using has fallen apart.



I covered a simple white button with cotton fabric to make it bit more cheerful, also it adds contrast.


I am happy with the final result.


Thank you for stopping by for a peek,

till next time,

Footstool ....

cover....make over (crochet)


This makeover was done with cotton yarn that I have collected from the thrift stores.  The original cover (above right) has nice indian embroidery work with mirrors, but the colour is quite pale.( for my liking) I have had it for few years now, and finally I thought of giving it a new look with crocheting.




I am pleased with my attempt, and I am loving the new colours too :)


a happy Easter and Passover  weekend!!

Thank you for taking time to stop by,
