summer holidays

We are enjoying our summer holidays. DDs are playing all day long with their dolls or no-dolls, watching 3hr tv: as there is always some animation movie after lunch time, reading books: they must read by themselves when they want and I must read to them before sleeping, there is most of the days no nap and long sleep at night, waking up late, splashing in pool with papa and a lot of other things. some are clicked:

Aaku in C mode :)

C= creative

yes she is creating.. all by herself.

As we are having the holidays I am mostly busy with my cleaning, cooking, crafting etc. but the kids don’t have anything extra to do… they are starting their days with reading books and then shifting to the playing and watching tv…  they are really bored of this and daily are asking to go to school.

in all this they have become  interested in creating things (blame to art attack from Disney tv) they will see something and ask me for the supplies… sometimes I don’t have… Achu will be sad and will get busy in playing with toys but Aaku started creating puzzles. she is gifting them to us all the time 🙂

here is Achu puzzle (with tattoos on face), mini puzzle (she made it by putting her mini doll in her front), papa puzzle (at the corner) and another Achu puzzle (shhhh…I misplaced one piece somewhere).

Here is her tiny airplane

you can see it is less then the half of our remote, and it has a smiling face too.

and the next is her cute wall hanging..

here she is following the instructions to create the fur tree which I showed her how to do.

In all these Achu is also trying to create… here is her gift to me… looking like a tulip

you can see in background are the greeting cards made by both of them 🙂

thermocole balls garland

My daughters love the tiny thermocole balls which pop out of the birthday balloons with sweets. half of the time in the party they will collect those balls in their party hats! So I had a lot of them and I hate them as they keep running around  the room hide under the furniture stick on the clothes… seeing the collection I thought to turn them into decoration as the colors of these balls are always bright and cheery. I made garland to decorate their room with it!

And here is the senorita

She is covered with handmade from head to toe 🙂

That dress is made by me from my old sari, those earrings are made by crocheting over her old unused bangles. Even that necklace is also crocheted.. I am very happy and proud that she loved everything and enjoyed them.

Here she is at the function, waiting for her performance.

Isn’t she looking cute…

I stitched a dress for Aaku and she is loving it! It is salwar kameez with dupatta; she asked for the dupatta. Have a look

Isn’t she looking pretty?  The dress is made out of my old dress which I was never going to use again. I liked the front detail of that dress and so decided to recycle my dress into Aaku’s dress. She was waiting for it eagerly and is happy to have the dress.

Oh my! How the dress has changed her appearance. She is looking grown up in this.

Yes the salwar was a little long for her earlier but I have fixed it now. And look at the front detail of the dress, wasn’t it worth the workout?

And now Achu is digging into my fabric stash to get a good color for her and as I know her she is going to choose Pink!

Loopy Crocheting and recycling

Recently I have crocheted this purse.

The stitch pattern that is used, gave it nice knitty finish. Now most of you want to know what stitch is it? The truth is “I don’t know what stitch is it!”. I saw a you tube video for this and adapted that to make this purse.

Here is the link for the video. The language is not English; I saw it when my speakers were off. That’s why I said I adapted it!

Enjoy!!

And i was busy recycling some of the old clothes to get a rag rug. This time I tried to have a pattern for the rug. And I think it has a little pattern… doesn’t it??

that’s all for now. see you all soon.
