my handmade life saga

when i was a kid i used to enjoy the pleasure of creating things. i always wanted to create things by myself and i had a big wood trunk  for my stuff. i used to make wall hangings, rakhies, cards etc. my papa must remember the patches i made for his pajamas. reusing was my hobby that time and my parents always appreciated that . but as  the time passed the hobby time became less and less, and once i was so busy with life that there was no time for these things. when i got married and moved to Bangalore, i became all alone in a new world. this situation led to the rebirth of my old hobbies. i created some old-time favorites.

i started crocheting and got a sewing machine for myself. i crocheted cushion covers, tablecloths, centerpieces, wall-hangings (most of them were made for my sasural) and i sew machine covers, cushion covers, refrigerator topper, salwar-suits, etc.

meanwhile i was entering a new world of motherhood, this changes my orientations and i also tried my hands over knitting. i knitted socks, sweaters, caps for my babies.

and now after four and half years of my marriage i am ready to try something different. what it will be, i don’t know. but i surely want to do the new. wish me luck!
