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 🙂
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.
Just finished knitting a dress for my daughter, which completes my New Year gift for both.
Aaku’s dress was ready by Jan. end but I couldn’t post earlier.
Both the dresses are test knit for chashmerejunkie on Ravelry. Simple patterns, seamless designs, top down with a lot of positive ease.
Crochet project; a cardi
Dahliya block in progress
a summer dress in needles.
Sometimes the things you are most afraid of are the things that make you the happiest 🙂 gardening is one…
I am finishing my UFO’s now a days and happy to say I have not many… here is what I managed to cast off today and blocked it as well
my first knitted doily 🙂
It was started in October 2013. It is Semco Fairy Knitting Design No. 9 a free knitting pattern. The pattern includes instructions for making 5 different sized cloths from the same patten and can be worked with yarn of any weight from size 60 thread on 1mm needles all the way up to fingering weight cotton on size 3.75mm needles. I used the light fingering weight which I had in my stash.
It is going to be on centre table!!
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.
Finishing touches to the mehandi in sample hand. They were proudly showing off their work later😁
Making strawberry yogurt shake in the kitchen…. The other one helped me in making the sandwiches and I couldn’t click that.
Other than this they were quite busy in water colour painting, which got the finishing touches today, so will be showing them later.
So the year 2013 is about to end and this is the time of gifting.. I don’t follow the Christmas gifting but still managed to finish up some pending gifting projects and did some quick gifts as well. If you did follow my earlier posts you would remember I was knitting a sweater and was about to quit… I managed to finish it but was not quite happy with the neck and so redid the neckband and now it is ready to be gifted.
and a little quick knit
