Mandala madness

If you are a crochet inthusiastic you’ll surely know what I am talking about. Yes it is the Mandala CAL by Official CCC Social Group. I had tried earlier “Sophies universe” but couldn’t continue due to some reasons. So when I saw the videos on itsallinnutshell YouTube channel I knew I have to do it. Here is my work after first part.

I started it without any plans on colours or yarn. I am using the acraylic bits from my stash and so far have managed to get good results; at least in my opinion 😉

Summer challenge

As our summer activities me and kids have taken 30day drawing challenge. We have listed 30 topics and are going to draw accordingly. I am saying we instead of my daughters as they have included me in this challenge and I still have to pick my pencil..(you know how lazy I am!!)
So the first topic is ‘self portrait’ …..
Here are the two drawings that are ready…

I am sure the second one is what most of you are going to like and praise the kid who drew it, but for me the first one is better in many ways.. Love the confidence of the artist which shows in the drawing.

A little dress

Aaku has developed great interest in kurties (Indian tunics). She had a nice white one with kasmiri embroidery on it, which she would wear always.. she didn’t like me washing it as well as that ment she would not get to wear it that day. As she is growing fast, the dress is getting short, so I decided to make one for her.
I had this one and half meter fabric with me in nice red maroon print. I decided to turn it into her kurti.

Added the lace border and done.

As always; she decided to make a dress for her doll too
