Hope all r doing well. I started doing well after two weeks, since my mother had cardiac arrest , pulse went below 30 bcoz of pulmonary edema( accumulation of fluid in lungs. She is fine now purely because of God's grace. She went close to death bed and at that time the situation around her was all favourable, relatives around her, vehicle to rush to hospital, a good hospital near by and a good doctor on duty at 9'o clock at night. Above all God's amazing grace has been with us and she came back to conscious after two days and pulse rate improve slowly and steadily. After 12 days of hospitalization she was fine and doing well now. I am bit relieved now and both my father and mother r managing on their own with the help of some of my relatives. Me and my brother are far away from them. Having parents in a far off place and ourselves some where, some times make us to feel down. Everything will be well if they r fine. And if they r caught up in such situations we kids will feel depressed and I was in a depressed state last two weeks.
But God has not let us down, its like bent but not broken. He is there on our side and now everything is going well with all of us. Praise GOD.
I have finished a crocodile stitch crochet bag. I have done this with variegated yarn and a 4mm hook. For the handle I have used wooden handle purchased from pradhan embroidery stores. Have a look at the bag.
I have made a oval shape flat bottom with single crochets in round.
For the zipper I have done blanket stitch around the zipper and then attached it to the bag using whip stitch. Since the crocodile stitch creates a thick texture I didn't line up the bag with any fabric.
Can u see some stitches with lavender and pink colors. It is a plastic canvas piece with needle point stitches. I have sewed it to the oval shape bottom to make the bag to stand sturdy. And now I have enough room to hold my things.
Previously I have done a crocodile stitch bag. You can see it here. Embroidery in the kasuti kurti is over. Now I have started to embellish it with sequins since it looks plain. So this crocheted bag took over in the blog post. My next post is Finished kasuti kurti.
While I was in the hospital with my mom I whipped up some lacy granny squares. Now joining part if remaining. This time I am trying a new method to join the squares and it is coming up nicely.
Also, a needlepoint purse has been started.
So many projects are there in my WIP basket. Also I have stashed some kits, threads and yarns. I do have a happy moment to share with you all. will come up with that news and kurti in my next post. Till then, Happy Crocheting.
