A crafty day

I mostly do craft things unplanned… it’s like anytime if I feel like making a thing I’ll start immediately. If I don’t, the idea or plan never comes to life. Yesterday I thought of finishing some pending sewing. It’s a dress half done. But when I checked the draft I was not able to connect with that, one piece was missing. I started looking for the missing piece and ended up with bringing out the fabric scraps with plan of doing something with them. I started with a small patchwork pincushion

and later started for a patchwork cover for my sewing machine.

I tried doing a bit of quilting as well on the patchwork and I think I did good as a beginner 😆

Revisiting Doily

After my recent thread work (the shrugs) I am gearing up to do more thread projects and maybe shorten my to-crochet-list by two or more. Here is what I have started

Fandango doily by Lily Design Book No. 201
It’s been in my to do list for more than four years and I am sure it’s going to be great. I am using crochet hook 1.3mm for the project.

One little addition

Here is what I made to go with the dress for the little girl

Cute little bolero. I am super happy with this one.. it goes with the dress and also can be used separately. It will surely be used many times before the recipient outgrows this beauty.

A gift in an hour

I needed a quick gift for a boy.. what a challenge. If it was a girl I could do many things but when it comes to a gift for a boy the options are limited. Then I remembered this idea of car play mat I saw on pinterest.. and after that it was just a matter of what material I had. I had felt sheets not too big but big enough to make the play mat. Kids were super excited to see me working on the project and helped me by giving quick ideas of where to place what.. and what’s the best part… the recipient liked it

Colours on my needles

My recent fo (finished object) is the shrug for my sil. No I didn’t mend the last one but though of quickly making another one. All because of the steaking being alien technique for me.. never tried.. know it only in theory. I may get the nerves to try it but surely not now.
Coming back to the fo, this was my sil’s choice, as she wanted a full sleeved shrug.

I am super happy the way it has turned. I have tried knitting shrug before but I was never happy with the results and so the projects never got completed. Maybe because I never wore them I was not sure about their drape and fitting. I think this project gave me a bit of idea of a shrug.
Other than this I am working on some other projects.. here is a sneak peek on one of them
