more for me

I have been doing  a lot of sewing for a while,  some really adventurous stitching.  Adventurous, as I did the things which I had never done before and which I had doubt if the outcome will be good enough to wear.  So the outcomes are fine enough to wear outside and I am happy

first is the blouse with lining which I stitched to wear for the Independence day celebration at school.

 

The plant that is peeping from the side is the brinjal plant 🙂  Photo clicked by Achu!!

The other one is a dress set

 

This took a lot of time to finish as I could not decide how to use the black fabric for enhancing the top. at last I did some machine embroidery using the bottom fabric on the top.

 

and did a little hand embroidery at the neckline.

 

tricolor things

we were busy in my school in Independence day themed crafts, as we celebrate it with parents … and need to decorate the place with themed charts. so with the help of all the children in my class I put together this chart

We did a lot of lotus in different styles.. I made the stencil and kids loved coloring it  as they had a perfect lotus  at the end 🙂

culmination day at school

Culminating activities are an important part of the academic programme of my daughters school. Culminating activities are organized for children to demonstrate their skills and project work. Parents are invited to view the work done by their children in the school.

We had our first culmination day last week. The children beautifully and I must say “confidently” shared their knowledge , as they played a scene from their syllabus.  My daughters were part of  “the community helpers”. Achu had to play a nurse and Aaku was a teacher.
