Crocheted Bag

My latest bag ....just off the hooks. I can never get over how nice these bags turn out and that they can actually hold a lot of stuff. You wouldn't think it's so roomy when you look at it but it hold more than expected. I could make more and more of these but weaving in the ends is such a task ....ugh !
The last pictures shows a close up for those who like details. This bag is made for a friend who requested for these colors. It's done in washable cotton yarn and lined with pretty off-white satin. I hope she likes it.

Ducks in a Pond
Little ducklings and ducks all enjoying a swim in the pond.
What do you think? I know many pictures ...but I have to improve my photography skills in order to get it all in one nice picture. More quilling to come ...

I really don't know how to show the little details like the grass and the tiny flowers growing around in the rocks and the grass. If you click the pictures, maybe you can see it.

Quilling, birds on frame
This is a frame made for daughter of a friend. It's her favorite colours. I hope her little girl likes it.

I've been quilling and trying out different techniques as well. The flower here is very popular among the Malaysian quillers. I loved it and tried my hand on it too. It's not bad ... but I guess there is room for improvement.

Another thing I've been enjoying is 3d quilling. I have a few things to done and ready to be photographed. Will post them here real soon.

Coasters in Crochet

There has been constant crocheting as well as quilling in my house these days. So many pictures to upload ...but until then - here is the latest stuff.
I've been dabbling with designing motifs...and loving it. These are a couple of my designs. I've made them into coasters. They are pretty fine ...more like lace since I've used size 20 crochet thread in cotton. I put in a lot of picots ...I love the dainty look picots give to any crochet lace.

Feeling Good !

I had a nice little surprise waiting for me at my blog. Thank you, Kavitha for this lovely award!
And now ...the random things about me :
1. I love music but cannot sing for the life of me.
2. I actually enjoy having guests and doing all the work.
3. I love watching TV shows on my lap top rather than the nice big television.
4. Weird thing- little babies get to sleep almost immediately when I hold them. My own baby was the only exception so far !!!! He would take hours :D
5. Erma Bombeck is my favorite author and has been since I was 16.
And now it's my turn to pass on the award. Here are just some of the blogs I really love the creativity and enjoy reading.

1. Khushboo

Tea cup and saucer sets in crochet.

Hello friends! Remember me ? I do wonder if I have any readers left in here at all ...I've been away for so long. Well, where have I been ? Been going all around the country visiting everywhere and everyone with family and friends. I'm not complaining ...had loads of fun. Just barely any time to get crafting done.
I did manage to get some crochet and quilling in the late hours ...when finally everyone was in bed. But then that left no time for blogging. Anyhow, now that everything is back to normal and routine I hope I'll be more regular.
Here are a couple of cup and saucer jewellery holders done. I'm so enjoying making these. More to come in many different colours :). Well, I put these up during the craft fair and they were gone instantly !It's such a wonderful feeling to see someone appreciate your creativity and work.
