Block stitch purse

Today i am happy to present my block stitch purse. This stitch was in my to do list for a very long time and finally i have learned it and made a 👛 purse out of it. Very happy. I have also attached the zipper and lining and it is perfect now. It has room to hold the necessary things like keys, mobile, money etc.



I have used local acrylic 4 ply yarn and a 4 mm hook. 

Learned the stitch from here. You can learn so many stitches in that site.  I am planning to make a bag out of this stitch with black and red.

I have completed a crochet table runner and a cushion cover and a mandala.   Now i am focussing on kutch embroidery kurti and almost the neck part is over. Will come up with my projects one by one. So do watch my space. That's all for now. 

Have a nice time with your yarns and hooks.  Happy crocheting.

Something here and there

Hello all
Thanks for your comments in my previous post. I feel like 💃 coz God has been so merciful to us and we are having moderate rainfall past three days. Usually we get low rainfall every year. This week i am in a mood of doing something sort of small projects. And this is what i came up with.

Crocheted some flowers to form a wreath. I followed the youtube tutorial here to make the flowers.

I am going to make a wreath with these.  I have place it in a canvas to see how it looks. I liked it.

What color background can i give for the canvas. I thought i will paint it with light cream. What do you think. Which color suits the best. Please do tell your suggestions.  Or will it look good on a hoop.

Another thing i have embroidered is needlepoint quilt blocks. I have pinnef so many images and patterns in my pinterest board and from that i have done these three blocks to see how it looks on tapestry canvas. It was nice and i will be hanging it my cupboard door.  Finishing is pending.


I will finish both the projects and come up with another post.
My embroidery needle and threads are busy with the following project.


 Thats all for now. Have a happy time with needle and thread.
