Preparing for the UAE National Day 2013

Did I tell you how beautiful the city of Al Ain looks all lighted up for the National Day celebrations? It's a treat to go around driving in the evenings. The pretty lights and decor all around is so cheerful. It inspires to create ... Another project in the theme of the UAE National day. Based on the colours of the flag ....all quilled ! It was fun doing this project but the tiny beehive was a killer. It is such a task to keep all the coils even and the same size especially when they are really tiny. Thats the part which took the longest. But I am happy with how it turned out. Looking forward to hearing from my friends how they like it. Here it is after the framing.
I was so excited to show this one I could not wait until the 2nd of December :). I just had to post these pictures.

Crocheted little bag

This is a handy sized bag / pouch ideal for fitting in a mobile phone, keys and a some little knick knacks. The colours are based on the U.A.E National flag. With the National Day just around the corner, on 2nd December, the mood is all set. The beautiful cities of U.A.E are all decorated with such pretty lights and the works. It's an inspiration to work on projects with the same theme. More such projects are on the way.

Crochet White and Turquoise baby dress

When it comes to baby clothes .....can anything be cuter than little girly stuff? I've always wished we could find such cute boy stuff too. Anyways, one can only hope :) This one is another baby dress whipped up by me based on some I've seen online. Once again , no pattern as such but the construction is pretty simple. Getting the stitch pattern in the right size was the tough part. This outfit is done in Garn Studio cotton Viscose yarn.I loved working with it and it gives a bit of a pearly glow to the dress. It is not seen in the picture. And of course I could not stop at just one. The other one is made in cotton baby yarn. There was also a matching hairband but I forgot to take the picture of it before giving it off. I'm so happy that my friend loved it and her little angel looked adorable in it.
