Modern Vintage Potholders

A group in Ravelry, SAARC, which I am a member of, decided to do a CAL/KAL to celebrate the Indian Independence Day on the 15th of August. We were supposed to start on that day and make something with cotton. I started 2 days later and decided to make potholders. These are what I made.

I have not attached 2 together since I felt it will become too thick. Planning to make more potholders since I found so many lovely patterns. Can’t stop now. Addictions...

My Lucy Bag

My cousin in Canada bought me some acrylic yarn  (She thought thats the only type available) from a dollar store there when she heard about my new hobby. When I showed her my work and told her about the variety of yarn available, she promised me that she would go to some real yarn shop and send me some good yarn when she reaches back. Isn't she sweet?? There were 10 to 12 balls in total. I removed just 3 or 4 from them and the rest looked like a very bright and colourful lot. So I decided I will try to make the Lucy bag(wanted to make one since a long long time). Iam almost done with it. And it looks really pretty if I may say so. Can't help it. I lovvve it!!
Now I need to find a pair of nice handles. Don't have yarn left to make them, so will buy readymade handles. The lining job is also left. I need to reach back in Abu Dhabi to do that since my sewing machine is there.

Closer to Nature

When we are here at home I feel we are closer to nature. The little one has so much more here to learn and explore.
