bye bye 2016

There was no power for nine days, phone lines were not working and no internet connectivity for two weeks.Cyclone vardah had affected our telecommunications and we had lost hundreds of trees too.Most of the roads have been cleared and got intermittent power supply now.
My plan is to be more creative in 2017.I hope I'll be able to blog often and share my progress.
               

Wishing y'all a very happy,healthy,creative and prosperous new year!

Happy stitching!

white block

I've started embellishing white block #3.
Most of the white fabric that I'm using for the blocks are from my old dresses and it makes these blocks even more special because of so many wonderful memories.                              
                                 Tucks are joined with cretan stitch                    

macramé cord,bullion loop over a knot,tassel with synthetic pearls,knotted blanket and herringbone stitches

lace

I had to switch back and forth from shuttle to needle tatting for the past couple of days.Even though it was an interesting experience I'd prefer to stick to one technique at a time.The biggest challenge while switching is to get the tension correct.                

shuttle tatted lace in progress for a lil' girl.

Happy stitching!
