Crochet hotpads

Hello all
Hope every one is doing good.  I have done with some projects but not able to show case it here. Being lazy to write a post.  Today i have been here to show u two hotpads which I have made it for my Christmas collection. Already i had a big hotpad in red color. Here i have used the christmas colors and whipped two of these. The first one is a free pattern called summer waves placemat. Pattern available here

                    

The second one i have played with the yarn in order to create a log cabin block. And I ended up with this. It doesn't look like a log cabin. And it tell me that Shami, u r not able to create a pattern. He he. Anyway i am happy with it.


For both of theses hotpads i have used 4 ply acrylic yarn of local brand and used a 4mm hook. Also I have decided to crochet a wreath for christmas. I am also in the process of making a quilted table runner. More over on my embroidery hoop lies a kurti which is nearing the finish of kasuti embroidery. Next week i will be starting a kutch work kurti for my co sister. My mega cross stitch project is also growing up nicely. 

We are nearing the year end. Where does the time flies. Its running sooooo fast. So i will try to finish the WIPs which i have started in the beginning of this year. No more new start this year. Eagerly waiting for 🎄 christmas to come. What about u. I would like to hear from you.

Praying hands - A cross Stitch Finish

Hi all

 Hope all r doing good. I am doing good and busy with my embroidery projects. This is a short post to show u one of my cross stitch finish. 

It is a famous picture which u can see in most of the christian home that tell about the tells the importance and value of prayer. It is a free design from christiancrossstitch.com.  I have added the text in it.


I have stitched on 14 ct aida with 2 strands of dmc threads. This is the first. Time i am using dmc threads. But i didn't find any difference between anchor and dmc threads. 

I am planning to stitch one more to office it in my home as this one is hanging in our office.

On my embroidery hoop is a kasuti saree and an embroidery stitch sampler. Will give details about that in my next post. 

Have a nice time with needle n thread.
