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.

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.
