New Pattern coming out on 20th May

Hi all; I have a good news to share; my new pattern is going to be published in a webzine on May 20th.

A short, flared skirt is all you need to cheer a little girl. She goes round and round with the swirl of the skirt and you can not stop thinking how little things that cheer them up!!

My new pattern Laharen Skirt  is a part of the May issue of the webzine Knotions.

This pattern is a buttoned waist skirt with cable patterned body. I worked this skirt using Nako Saten yarn which I had bought from the pony craft store. My daughter is loving the skirt and swirling in it 🙂

 

 

FO finally

Finally I managed to tuck in the loose ends to say this project a completed one

I don’t have a model for this beauty. I have to post it to the recipient and wait for the modeled pics.
And I am all ready for my next block

Evening at the pond

image

Finished my evening at the pond block. This is the second block of ’round the year’ quilt blocks series posted on Betukbandihttp://betukbandi.wordpress.com
I had started stitching these blocks last year when the series was proposed on fb, but I couldn’t do more than two blocks last year.
I had taken the layout print last year itself for this block. So all I did for the last three days was to piece the tamplates, cut the fabric and assembled the block. Tried my best to get neat finishing, which is not my expertise.
The block is a square block, but I am planning to make cushion covers . So I am leaving it circular till my next step 🙂

The New look

I had mentioned earlier about the lace collar I was working on; I have attached it to the dress. Have a look

image

This dress already had lacy collar but they were machine-made. The little girl rarely wore this dress as she found the dress neck too low as well as wide and was not comfortable with that. I am sure now she is going to wear this often:)
Here is the before look

WIP

Today I am sharing my wip(work in progress) projects. Normally I prefer to work on one project at a time as that way my focus is only on one work and I can finish on time. But at times I need break from the monotony of the work and I end up having more than one projects in hand.
Right now I am test knitting a tee with beading details on it.

I got a request to fix a dress for my friend’s daughter; the dress has very deep neckline. So I am crocheting a collar for the same

Along with these I am working on a crochet top and a five day workshop with kids in my society.
The workshop includes paper folding, cutting to make gift boxes, basic needlework  (running stitches, chain stitches) and to keep kids hooked we have fireless cooking. Till now we made a vegetables sanwich, vegetables salad and fruit cababs (fruits on a skewer). We all are enjoying this and kids even asked why can’t we have the workshop for more days:D
