Blanket WIPs

Thank you so much for the sweet comments you leave for me and the encouragement and inspiration I am getting from this little blogland of ours!!

Today I thought, I will post about my blanket WIPs. For that extra little push to complete them and also for the sheer pleasure of photographing them!!

I have started a new stripy baby blankie!! No I am not expecting.. While going to my parents home this time I forgot to take some colours I needed for my Granny Square Afghan. So started making this baby blanket with the colours I had. Otherwise nine hours in the car without my crochet is boooring!! I will decide what to do with it later. Right now just enjoying making it!!

Next are these cheerful little squares. I have decided to turn these into another baby blanket.

Last but not the least my Granny Square Blanket!! Can you notice some changes in there? Yeah!! I have included some large squares in between and I lovvve the effect!!

I kept this on our doorstep for Diwali ( Festival of Lights, celebrated in India).

Happy Halloween to all!!Have a great day!!

Birthday Gifts And Some Fabric Shopping

It was my Birthday last Friday!!Got some nice gifts and felt special. But let me show you what I gifted myself. Two books I have been dreaming to buy since a long time. Yippee!!

Also found some super cute fabric yesterday in an exhibition. Got them for reasonable rates as they are export rejects. These are all bed sheets, except the cupcakes print which is a pillowcase. The sheets are quite big so have enough in each print. I can't wait to use these for my sewing projects.

 I am crocheting some bling stuff today. Will post about within the next couple of days. Have a nice day!!

Little housie!!!

No I was not on holiday!!!I was in the bed most of the time the past few days. Only times I got out was to go to the hospital or to the loo. I was hit by a very bad stomach infection and it was really baaad!!!!. After two courses of antibiotics and a few visits to the hospital, I feel better now. But I do not feel like knitting, crocheting or sewing after that. Why????????? I have gone through many of your blogs , to get that feeling back, and seeing so many lovely stuff in blogland is definitely helping. Okay, enough of my blabber.
Let me share with you pictures of a little sewing project I did a weekend, before all of this started.

I am not very good with embroidery. I have never done any serious embroidery. My inexperience can be seen here. But I love this little housie. Fully handmade by me. :) .. I was so inspired by a crocheted little house Lucy showed in her blog here

On the side I have tried to put a watering jug and a plant.

In the backside is a washing line with a granny blankie and stripy pajamas!!!Not so neat, I know. But not bad for a beginner, right??

I hope I can start crocheting, knitting and sewing again. Have a nice weekend!!
