Giveaway Alert

This is the first time Iam participating in a blog giveaway. Nima at Made to Treasure is celebrating her 100th post with a giveaway. There are some wonderful goodies to be won. Please check it out.


Finally finished lining the bag about which I had blogged in my very first post. Lining this took a lot of time. First I did hand sewing. But then I felt I should go for machine sewing. It does not look perfect, but Iam pretty happy. Here is a picture of the lining.

Hubby helped me to choose the fabric for the lining. He said this fabric has all the colours that I have used for my bag. And he is right.

Also made a crocheted scarf. It was a quick make and Iam very happy with how it has turned out. The yarn I used is a blend of wool and acrylic. Blocked it with the help of a friend in Ravelry. This scarf will be gifted to a cousin of my husband.

Have been thinking for a long time to share the details of some of the things I have made in the past, that is before I started blogging. And since they are few in number, I think I can fit them into 1 post. So here you go.
scarf which is my first work in crochet. Iam really happy with the results. I love it and wear it all the time.

My first
doily which turned out to be quite big (maybe because I used knitting cotton). But I really liked it.

A table runner which is adorning our dining table. This is again a crocheted piece and the pattern is by me. The main part is plain double crochet. Finalising on the edging part took a lot of time. But again happy with the result.

Now moving on to some knitted projects.
scarf was made before I made any of the stuff mentioned above.

Made this cap for Pranav, but after a wash it has become all loose. Doesn't even fit my head. So planning to frog it and use the yarn for something else.

New Home For My Crochet Hooks

As I have confessed in one of my earlier posts, I was scared of the sewing machine. A lot of time in the past couple of weeks were spent in overcoming this fear. I have succeeded to a large extent and even managed to sew a crochet hook clutch for me..yippeeee..Iam pretty happy with the results.

Also made this pincushion.

Gifts for a little one

My friend’s ( my best best friend since class 4 ) little boy is now 4 months old. I wanted to send some gifts for the little one, including something handmade. These are the things that will be sent.
A bib, pattern here

A summer hat ( which might turn out to be a bit bigger for him), pattern here

And some stuff that I bought.

Hope the munchkin will enjoy his gifts.

This is my first post and Iam totally confused where to start. Maybe I will get into the flow after a few posts. I have just started to knit and crochet . Teaching myself from online tutorials. And as if that is not enough I have also started to try sewing. I lined a bag that i knit recently. I did hand sewing. Here is a picture of the bag.

Want to learn to use the sewing machine. But the bobbin thread coming from under and overlapping with the main thread is not working and I cant figure out why. All rocket science as of now. I will post pictures of the lining work later.
