Hi !!!

 I have done this sketch with oil pastels on sand paper. Since the base of the sand paper is rough, I had to draw directly on the paper with the crayons.

You can easily get sand paper from a hardware store and in various colors too. You can choose the colors according to the given  base and make beautiful landscape, pictures etc

So go ahead and try out this another technique of  painting/drawing.

Enjoy and a Happy Republic Day to you all !!!!

Fabric Painting

Hi !!!

This is my first attempt in fabric painting.

Since i was not  getting a design to trace , I did a free hand sketch and then used fabric colors to paint the same.

It seems O.K to me. The next one would be better than this.

Will be posting more on this thread.

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully your day was also better than yesterday!!!!!!!!!!

Crochet bag

This is a small crochet bag. It can be used to store your accessories like clips,bands etc or can be used as a hand bag .I have used very simple mini blocks design for this bag.

Material required
Crochet cotton yarns blue and silver
7mm steel crochet hook
1st row Chain of 50
2nd row sc in each chain space & cont. till row 9
10th row dc in four chain spaces, 1ch., skip 3, 3dc in next ch. space, ch 1,skip 3,3dc in next chain space,cont., end with 4 dc in four chain space.Turn
11th row, 3 chain, dc in the next 3 ch spaces, ch 1, 3 dc in the space created, ch 1, dc in the next space created. Cont. like this and end the row with 4 dc in each
This way you will have border on each side with mini blocks pattern in between.
Continue with this until you have reached the desired length. You can change the colors alternatively according to your liking. In my case, you can see there is no pattern of color change.Somewhere I hv changed after 4 rows and somewhere after 3 rows. After that, I hv done 4 rows of sc and hv used shell stitch on the edge.
Strap / Handle (mixed blue and silver yarn)
ch 6, dc in each you reach the desired length and then sew it on the on the inner side of the bag.

Hope I have been able to describe the pattern with clarity.

Thanks for visiting !!!!

With the descent of new year people start making plans. They start setting goals and aims for the new year so that they can work towards it. This not only adds to the positivety  in once life but also gives something to look forward to. I have also decided to do few things, follow certain regimes during the year 2012.

Usually I do not make any concrete plans for the future and generally flow with the situations and circumstances.But for a change this year, I have decided to make at least few resolutions so that I am able to utilize this year more fruitfully and effectively.

To start with I have given a new look to my blog. It is still in the makeover phase, and hopefully, once I am through, you guys are going to like it.

There are few more things about which I am very serious and which I would like to priortise in my everyday schedule. Those are :

1. I would like to become more active in my blog posts and will try to do at least 2-3 blog posts in a week positively.
2. As I look back, I feel that lately I have not been concentrating much on clay work. In face I have not done anything in  this medium since August 2011. I plan to amend this and will do 1-2 blog posts on same.
3. I would practice and improve my sketching which has a taken a back seat.
4. I want to learn other crafts and will start by learning U-pin laces.
5. Most importantly, I will go for my morning walks regularly. This I plan to take seriously, because of late I have become a bit lazy. Increasingly cold weather has also added to this, and some reason or other I try to avoid going for walks. But now this year I plan to push myself, and reduce max. 2-3 kgs.

Hope fully circumstances will prove favorable, and I would be able to accomplish my goals successfully.

Hi !!!!!!!!!!!

On this first day of January 2012, I would like to wish all the visitors a Very Happy & Prosperous 2012

Now when i look back in the year that has just gone by, I am having mixed feelings.  Like any other year, 2011 also had its ups and downs.

If i look at the brighter side, then 2011 brought me back my old friends with whom i had lost touch. It feels quite nice when you meet them after a loooooooooong time. There is so much to catch up to. 

This was the year  when i took my hobby of creativity quite seriously and when my friend suggested i should write a blog on the same i agreed readily. Since then the journey of me & myself have taken a new shape. It has added up to my confidence level, because for me, this blog has been my space, my platform, where i could share my craft with you people without any hesitation. Be it candles, clay work, bead work or crochet, its been wonderful to share my knowledge with you. Also i would like to mention that, I have learnt a lot from other blog writers.Be it  Anitakumar's blog, which is devoted to ribbon embroidary(SRE)or which is solely a crochet blog. All are very good. Even though i am not a regular follower of these blogs, but whenever i visit these blogs, there work inspires me to push myself more and be more creative.

This was the year when i was able to visit Vaishno Devi Temple. At last after so many years of trying and trying finally, Mata called me to visit her. That was also a very beautiful experience. We were 10-15 people and we really had a very good time.

Last year one of my close friend had her first baby after 13 years of marriage. It was a delightful news, which once again ascertained the fact that there is God and if you have faith in him, nothing is impossible. You just need to trust yourself and your instincts.

2011 had its low moments. I lost my best friend whom i miss very much, every moment and every day. In fact she was the one who encouraged me to follow this path and who was my best critic. Sometimes without her, i do get lonely. I hope you are in peace wherever you are. Many famous personalities especially in Bollywood died like Shammi kapoor, Devanand, etc. Also who can forget Steve Jobs, founder Apple computers.

Well i think life is like that. Sometimes you smile, sometimes you cry. So personally I feel, that one should take life as it comes. No expectations and just pray to god that he gives us enough strength to overcome our loss and we are able to enjoy each and every moment of our lives.
