Craft

I am kind of lazy when it comes to keep things immediately back to their places.  I leave them where I work until my work is completely done,  sometimes they lay around for two three days.  Recently I was working on some felt project and my bundle of felt sheets with my needle and embroidery threads were on my living room table. My kids,  specially Aaku loved the felt so much that she used up my things into a beautiful drawing. image I am still trying to figure out what Achu intended to make ☺ image

Beauties

I had worked on thread projects but never felt the need of blocking, truely speaking I didn’t know anything about blocking till I saw some post about it at Ravelry. after that I tried my hand on blocking and found the miraculous changes. I blocked my two long pending centerpieces yesterday.

DH saw this and said when did you do this! He did’t realise it was an old piece 🙂 I am happy to see how the work has opened up and I can see all the details clearly.

I love

I love the creations of my daughters…

I love the cute little princess Aaku has made.

I love the hair of Achu’s princess 🙂

I love them when they sit quietly and do their stuff (most of the time they do!)…

I love the cute little fingers involved here…

and here…

I love the description Aaku gave about what she has drawn… this is a princess’s house, she is going to the park, here is the way for the car..etc.

I love how Achu has got interest in drawing and now her creations are cute!

Felting Fun

 

Suddenly I felt like I need a bag! I checked online but I can’t work with instructions from the net and I don’t like those B/W printouts, they don’t encourage me to work. So I thought to check in my collection if I can make something nice from what I have. I had this book “Bags that rock” and the yarn for quite some time… but was afraid to try a new technique! after a lot of thinking I choose to go with the pattern “Laura Petrie” The pattern uses three colors but I haw wool in two colors only… so I used two colors only. It was an easy and quick knit. the felting instructions given in the book were for the washing machine, but I tried it with my hands… I was so afraid if everything is going to be ok.. but as after some time I started noticing the change I was so happy . So now I have a nice felted bag… which needs lining 😛
