Kasuti Motif and a new start

Recently I have embroidered a kasuti motif.  I have done it on black color 10ct aida cloth.  Used three strands of anchor cotton embroidery thread.  I thought of completing it into a coaster.  Have a look at the motif.

I have started a new project in kutch work.  A look into it.

I have decided not to pick any new project before completing it.  I  should work on my incomplete projects.  Wish me good luck.

Crocheted green doily

This doily pattern was in my to do list for a longggggggggggggggggggggg time.  The pattern was free and it was from  The name given to this doily is Christmas Amaryllis doily. I have seen this in some blogs crocheted by the doily lovers. 

Here i have used the pearl cotton thread no.8 green color.  This is the first time i am crocheting a doily with thread. While crocheting I didn't get the proper shaper. But after blocking I was happy to see the shape with pineapples.  But on the blocking side I didn't do a perfect job.  The edges are not that much perfect.  Try to block once more. Now have a look at my greeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen doily.

Today I was happy for one more reason that is, I have found out the option for compressing the image files from MB to Kb.  And today all the three images got uploaded within the blink of my eye.  I used to edit my pictures using ms paint. But now I am using Microsoft Office Picture manager to do this. 

In my next post I will come up with a small embroidered project. So do watch my space. Till then,Happy Crocheting.
