Hi !!!

Today I am sharing this oval shaped crochet doily with you. 

This is basically made by joining two halves and then finished off with a fine edging using trebles & picot stitch.

For this I have used a 10 sized crochet steel hook and  Red Heart Crochet Cotton.

You can find the pattern HERE.

After completing the doily I found it a wee bit simple .....so I added these poppy flowers (tutorial for the same can be found in youtube) to give it more colour. 

I hope you like it as much as I do.

I would like to hear from you on the above project.

Till next time happy crafting !!!!:)

Key Holder Makeover

Hello ladies !!

Hope all of you are having a great weekend :)

I am coming back almost after a month & it feels so good :))

I haven't been able to do much on the creative front, as we have been busy shifting.... Leaving my old home has been physically tiring & emotionally draining. I have been living here for more than 12 years & it had almost become a part of me. Every room has its own  memories ....leaving them behind has not been easy for me.  I wish I could be more practical like my husband. He likes it here very much as it is more spacious as compared to our old ones. 

We are still settling down here.  Still more cartons to unpack...... more places to fill..... yeah life is like this and you need to move on like my husband says.....

Best part of shifting is that you find lot of old things which you have totally forgotten about. One such finding is this old keyholder, & I decided to revamp it. Decided to go with madhubani art form as it involves use of dark bold colours.

Now its ready to be used:) I am happy with the outcome & I hope you also like it.

Am also working on a thread doily. Will give you the details in my next blog post.

Till next time happy crafting !!!!
