With my kids school holidays being extended for 1 more week I have been quite busy. That does not mean I was not working on my craft projects. Its just that I was not getting enough time to do my blog post.All this time I have been missing, I completed my crochet poncho. Here are some pics of the same. As you can see I have added strings thru the collar to tighten it accordingly and have added tassels around the same.

Lately my focus has shifted on embroidery, the outcome of which are these 2 projects which I am currently working on. The first one is a peacock. The fabric that I am using is black matte and I have used silk crochet yarn to embroider the peacock. For the outline I have used white & orange yarns. For the feathers I have used green yarn, but I am thinking of replacing it with blue. For the body I am thinking of using blue yarn for the filling. Or maybe a mixture of red, green and orange would look good............ I don't know this has actually become a confused project for me, as I am getting messed up with all the colors I have. So, I have kept it aside for a while to rethink the color combinations.
This is a new stitch that I have learned recently, in hand embroidery from the stitch fun section of http://www.needlenthread.com/. Its called Griffin stitch - lattice filling. This stitch is best suited for even weave fabric, but here I have used plain cotton fabric.
Do leave your feedback on these WIP's. I look forward to your suggestions/feedback.
