In between big projects

Hello all,

I am here to show u some thing which I have done between my big projects.    Currently I am doing some kutch and kasuti projects on kurtis.  So when I get bored on doing that I use to crochet small squares.  one such square is more v-s.  You can get so many square patterns in that blog.  I have done this square using 4ply acrylic yarn and 3mm hook.

One more kasuti motif I have practiced to do on my cotton kurti.

I have started a sampler for embroidery stitches.  So far I have completed two stitches. And worked a sample design for straight stitch.

The flowers are done using straight stitch.  Inside are french knots.  Used variegated threads for flowers.  Sample for fern stitch is going on.
One last picture of the kutch work kurti which I am doing on a custom order.  Already I have done The same design with the same color combo and another one with different colors.  This one is the third piece of third design.

One of the kasuti project is nearing it's completion.  Hopefully that will be my next post.  Because of these custom order I am not able to make any progress in my mega cross stitch project.  Next month I am planning to spend atleast 15 mins each day for that.  So, see u in m next post.  Till then have a happy time with needle and thread.

Crochet purse, smalls SAL - May

Hello my readers,

Vacation is over in our place and my kids are back to school and I am slowly catching up my crafty activities.

I have completed a small crochet purse with the copenhagen square pattern.   The pattern can be found here.For the lining this time I made a zipper purse and then attached that to the crocheted one. I found it easier without much complication. 

Also I have cross stitched a small design for Smalls SAL - May 2016.  A tulip flower.  But I am late to check in for that.  

That's all from me today.  Temperatures are still high in my place and my mood is not settled to do embroidery.  Hope the climate will be ok within a week or two.  Till then I will be continuing with my crochet projects and I will be back with a crochet doily.  Happy crocheting and cross stitching.
