Giveaway Alert : I've always loved Lin's beautiful work. And now she has a giveaway. It's a tad late for the giveaway but her blog is just amazing and the work is so pretty, I just had to share it.

Rectangular crochet doily

I am in the doily mode right now so here is another doily.This time a rectangle one. Worked by joining squares and a rounded off with a lacy border. There is no pattern just something whipped up. If only I had the patience of writing patterns!! The gold trim gives it a festive look. This is also a tray doily. With Eid approaching Table settings and servings are on my mind :) And hence such projects. Here both the tray doilies together:

Oval Crochet Doily

It has been quite a while since I made doilies.And this one was such fun to make. Its a vintage pattern from the celt's site and was breeze to work through. This is worked in Aunt Lydia's crochet cotton thread. A simple pineapple pattern is always a joy to work. This is going to be a tray doily. Something to pretty up the serving trays.

Crocheted Pouch

A crocheted pouch in cluster stitch made for order. It is worked with Aunt Lydia's crochet cotton thread. Love the strong and sturdy feel of it. And the best part is that it is so light.

Quilled Camel

Live in a desert and you cannot stop thinking about the life in the sands. There are so many beautiful things about a desert Funny , though , when people speak about a desert it is usually in terms of heat, sand, dryness, lack of greenery etc... generally with a very dry and morbid kind of feel. Yes, I agree that deserts are not really easy . But I have seen the serene beauty of the landscape, the absolutely, breathtakingly beautiful sand dunes and spurts of tiny little desert plants here and there.It is so magical at sunset that you cannot look away. Anyways, this particular work is a tribute to the beautiful deserts of UAE - my quilled camel. I have grown up in UAE , been here most of my life and can relate to the traditions here and unique beauty of this country. It's my home away from home. P.S : Yes, this is the project that gave me all those horrible paper cuts. This paper has a very sharp edge but is beautiful to work with.

Another little baby dress in Pink

Another little cute baby dress. This one is for a sweet little 5 months old princess. I'm sure it will look lovely on her. There is also a matching hairband to go with it.This dress is based on the pattern of the lavender dress that I posted last week. The client wanted it made in pink and in specified size. I hope she likes it.

Crocheted Slouchy hats

I like wearing slouchy hats and beanies but unfortunately the weather here just does not allow it. It never gets cold enough !!! But then why wouldn't I make them? So there... I made a few. This one is in beautiful grey yarn with specks of orange and blue pink and yellow. I just love the look and feel of this yarn. It is lovely black soft and smooth with a bit of sheen to it. The picture just doesn't show it. I tried to take good picture but this is all I could do :( And finally a cream coloured slouchy with a brim. This one has faux cables. This is done in soft mohair yarn and it so warm and cozy. Maybe the next time I will make actual cables.
You need to click on the pictures to see them full . I wonder why the whole picture is not showing !!!
