Finally something to share

Today I finished stitching this Kurta for my friend. She wanted a potli button front neck design. I think it looks good, isn’t it? 

After I pressed and folded it, I remembered that I have not posted here for a long time. I grabbed my phone and clicked this pic. 

I still need feedback on the fitting of it as I have to hand over it to my friend.

It’s not that I am not doing anything at all. I had been busy with kids for their summer holidays. Sadly this year we didn’t do much together. Kids did some crafting here and there but it was all unplanned; so not much to share. 

I started some knitting projects recently, I’ll be posting about them in my next post. Till that time “happy crafting” 🙂

Failed Projects

I had not been feeling like crafting for the last three months. I did some projects but nothing big, mending or alteration was what mainly happened for me. So not much to share but two mega failed projects

A pair of slippers and a headband for a little princess, sadly the slippers didn’t fit her (although I did make it for a year old size). I still have to make another pair for her and it’s been a month. I know I am being lazy but it looks like I am slowly getting my mojo back and soon I’ll update on this project.

A lace shrug made on request for Bhabhi. Sadly after washing I realised that the underarms are not going to fit her and so again I have to start a new one. I am still not sure about what to do with it.

 

some things we did

we did dig the mud ….

we backed honey yoghurt muffins…

we made the pompom doll

we made a yarn wrapped vase

and we sang  “do you want to build a snowman? ” all day long!!  🙂

 

 

show off

the border colour is bleeding but I like the effect it is giving to the tee 🙂 the knit is fitting perfectly and I like the length. it is a clever pattern from tincanknits worked upside down seamlessly.

summer fun day ten

2014-04-22 10.02.15Yes she is knitting!! Call me crazy…. when Achu went to see the doctor, Aaku kept asking me what should she do? I had things in mind but if I would start without Achu… she will be grumpy all day saying I only love Aaku not her. so I asked Aaku to make a dress for her doll and I ment a fabric dress, as I was knitting Aaku said she will knit a skirt for her doll! I had to show her…. she did one ribbing row, that means one full row of 17 sts k1p1.  🙂

and what else… if Aaku has done something how Achu will not do that

one month gone and I have nothing much to share…. I am busy between work, children and home. crafts are happening but the pace is so slow and some w.i.p.s lying around the house. the only thing I managed to finish is this dress

Initially I took another lace for the neck but then changed the design …

due to a mistake

I was making the same dress as the one for Achu, but I had less of the solid colour fabric, so I choose to use it in body. Now I was cutting the front and halfway I realised I did something wrong! I forgot to fold the fabric twice … So I had to make up for the mistake and this came out as result! 2013-10-10 19.09.14
