I am a winner.....

Ohhh it’s such a nice feeling to win.. I know I am late…:( but better late than never!! Deepa thanks a lot once again for the lovely embroidery kit. I am dying to start it, but before that I need to wind up another project.

The kit that I won

Partial views of the project that I am working at present. I am not sure if I should fill the raised cups. What do you think? Should I feel the cups????...:)

Will be back soon after I complete this piece.

A small post....

...about hankies..made for my mom a few months ago. I took the pictures after she has already used it. Thus, a bit of stain is visible. This pattern is from an embroidery book.

The next pattern is by doe-c-doe. I made one in each corner of the hanky.

Will be back soon..:)

The force behind my creativity

There comes a point in your life when you don’t feel like doing anything but just flow with the rhythm of life. You eat, drink, sleep and yes go to work as well just for the reason that you need to be in this world. Well, I guess I was going through that phase of my life. Thus, I was far from the blogging world for so long. Anyway, let’s leave this aside and focus on today's post. This is indeed a special post dedicated to my grandmother, my mentor.

Below two are wall hangings that she machine embroidered many years back. She had her own teaching center then. Many of her students today run their own venture. She does not remember exactly when she made them and she cannot embroider currently either. But she has well treasured these old pieces and loves to flaunt them.

Will be back very soooooooon...
