Crochet Halter set

Hi there ! I am back after a long break....only break from blogging (It's not intentional though ,just the lack of time to take pictures basically.) But as always, I am busy working on many projects. Also been busy because I have finally started working again as well. Here is a crocheted halter baby top and a matching crochet scarf/ bandana to go. It is all done in really very colourful and bright ,soft baby yarn and looks absolutely adorable when worn. I promise you it looks 10 times better when you actually see a baby wear it. And here is another one with pastel tones . This one has little flip flop sandals to go with it.

Quilled Tree Of Life

I have always loved trees. Taking pictures of them, drawing, painting, crocheting , quilling and even just looking at them. Each one seems to have a soul, a story ! Here is a quilled tree. This is a very special project to me . I loved making it, every minute of it was fun. It took a long time to make but it was one of those projects that you don't mind spending time on. The trunk of the tree took a long time to make and being a slow worker does not help. The leaves are in 2 or 3 tones of green so that took a good deal of time too. But i feel that end result was all worth the time and effort spent. This piece is A3 size and probably onr of my biggest quilled projects yet.

Popcorns and Hexagons 2

Warm and buttery caramel popcorn! This is what comes to mind when I look at these motifs. The beautiful winter of UAE calls for such treats. Yes, I am finally done with the project and the bag is ready. And here is the reason why it look so long to finish this bag even after the motifs were ready so many days back. I was honestly being a good girl minding my own business and working on my bag when I suddenly happened to glance at this black and grey yarn in my work basket. I could not help but try out the motif pattern with that yarn and then as you know one motif led to another ....and it was so distracting! I had this bag ready and done before the one I started with. I am sure there are many people out there who can relate to this. But I do admire those of you who can really stick it out with the project in hand and finish it before you jump on to a new idea.

Popcorns and hexagons

Welcome into the year 2015! Happy New Year to everyone! A new start ...a new chance! Its been a great year so far ...or lets say a great first week. Hopefully the rest of 2015 will be so all along. I have had this project on my mind for a very long time. With all thats been happening, new projects, work, orders ,craft fairs etc I did not get a chance to work on it until now. Feeling so happy that finally I got around to making it. And it makes me wonder what held me back so long. It is a fairly easy and quick pattern so I am happy that it is moving along fast. Just a sneak peek .... a few done and more to go. And just for fun ...more pics

Little Halter black and red

A little baby halter that I had designed for a very beautiful little girl. I really loved how it turned out. It was made for a custom order. When I had started off , I had a different idea. But then sometime ( a bit often actually , with me ) as you work the ideas begin to change and you end up with a totally different design from what you had originally started. This is one of those projects. I loved how it turned out. I should work on writing a pattern for this in different sizes. Maybe in 2015, I will. I love the way it can be folded to like like a little purse !

A year gone by ......

Sometimes days just go by idea how time flies. And before you know it you are standing at the tail end of the year. I feel like this year too just zoomed past...but looking back I can see that so much has happened, thankfully , most of it has been good. Blessings really ! It has been a very busy crafty year , lots of new friends, new projects, new things to learn, new groups, new craft fairs , new arts and a new job too. It feels so overwhelming when I think about it sometimes , as if there is so much to fit in the little time and space but I have come to realize that better busy that lazy. Of course, I have also come to accept that as long as you dont let stress factor in , all is fine. the key is letting go of a few things that can wait. Unfortunately , blogging has been one of the things that I had to let go in order to let other things fall in place. But I was so surprised and so touched ( and so grateful too ) that so many of my regular blog readers were checking in and asking me why I was not posting anymore. I will try to be more regular now that I know I have some of my blog followers who do visit here and hope to see me posting. Thank you so much for visiting and looking out for me.
