Hello dear friends? How are you all?
Been a long time right?!
No real excuses though ; except me being scatterbrained with all the things happening here.
I did post updates on Facebook now and then but this space sadly got neglected.
So let me quickly go over things that happened this month and also
show you all some of the things that were struck off my WIP list
First up is the Japanese Motif Scarf.
The Japanese Flower motif scarf work in progress post is one of the popular posts on this blog and I realised I never put up a picture of the finished scarf.
Here it is all finished now.
It was so hard to get a full good picture.A closer look
It is one of my all time favourites and I'm keeping this for myself .
Next up is that ,Lil B won the first prize for Mono acting in the inter school competition held here. He was to act as one of the literary figures . His teacher chose Shakespeare for him. Lil B wasn't very happy to go but his teacher wasn't letting him off the hook that easily.And so in the end , he reluctantly went and came back with a medal ,a trophy and a certificate.
Don't let that smile deceive you ... I had to deal with a whole lot of nervous tears before the event and I didn't expect that he'd come home with the first prize.
Then I found a Finished and forgotten little motif.
This motif was a free giveaway on Pradeepa's blog .When I found it, I promptly glued it to my craft journal.Now I can look at it and admire it. I made it with DMC Perle Cotton
As we were mourning as well as thanking for the life of a very dear Uncle gone too soon at 47 , twenty years ago... A new life came into our lives to turn the mourning into joy. Life came full circle that day as my SIL gave birth at 5:22pm July 23 an eight pound weighing 20" long Matthew .
And so Life goes on ...
The cute little button is a harbinger of good things to follow.
I also finished another runner. Still, the ends need to be woven in and blocked.
After I finished this runner ... I got struck by Startitis and started the Grantangle stole ....half way through I wasn't very happy with the way it was turning out .
Seeing that I wasn't really in the mind frame of making anything new, I have gone back to my granny square blanket ! Yea it has become like my comfort zone now !!!
Oh before I forget, I also made a couple of headbands from a chart i saw online.
Which one do you like?
Btw, have you noticed my addi Swing Hooks.Now that I've used them for a few projects, I will do a review of them in my next post.
I will be taking a break from blogging next month on .... for how long I cannot say at this point.
Take care dear friends.Bye for now.
