Finished Poncho and some WIP's

Hi !!!!

With my kids school holidays being extended for 1 more week I have been quite busy. That does not mean I was not working on my craft projects. Its just that I was not getting enough time to do my blog post.All this time I have been missing, I completed my crochet poncho. Here are some pics of the same. As you can see I have added strings thru the collar to tighten it accordingly and have added tassels around the same. 

For the detailed tutorial on the above poncho click on this video

Lately my focus has shifted on embroidery, the outcome of which are these 2 projects which I am currently working on. The first one is a peacock. The fabric that I am using is black matte and I have used silk crochet yarn to embroider the peacock. For the outline I have used white & orange yarns. For the feathers I have used green yarn, but I am thinking of replacing it with blue. For the body I am thinking of using blue yarn for the filling. Or maybe a mixture of red, green and orange would look good............ I don't know this has actually become a confused project for me, as I am getting messed up with all the colors I have. So, I have kept it aside for a while to rethink the color combinations.

This is a new stitch that I have learned recently,  in hand embroidery  from the stitch fun section of Its called Griffin stitch - lattice filling. This stitch is best suited for even weave fabric, but here I have used plain cotton fabric.

Do leave  your feedback on these WIP's. I look forward to your suggestions/feedback.

Hello everybody !!!!!

Its time to bid adieu to 2012 and welcome 2013 . But unfortunately 2012 ended with the shameful incident of gang rape in Delhi. On this first day of the year rather than feeling happy, I am feeling very low and sad. My heart goes out to the family of the girl who died after fighting for her life for 2 weeks. May her soul rest in peace. 

This news comes as another black mark on the city, which is gradually becoming a center of crime against women. A city where women are not safe at all.

I just hope that this New Year 2013 brings new hope to us women. I hope that the govt. makes legal reforms and comes up with more stricter laws for crime against women. I wish we as individual are able to bring  social reforms in the society by changing the mindset of people.

On this note I would like to wish all my followers and blogger friends 

A Very Happy, Safe & A Healthy New Year.

Best Wishes
