Happy Basant Panchami !!!


A very Happy Basant Panchami to all of you. 

Today we worship Goddess Saraswati (goddess of knowledge, music, art & learning). Seated on white Lotus she symbolises light, knowledge & truth. Holding Veena(musical instrument) in her hand Goddess Saraswati reinforces the importance of music & rhythm in life. Her bahon (vehicle) is white swan which portrays purity and perfection and her ability to distinguish between good and evil.

Coming on to my WIPs I have just completed my needlework project.

Even though some of my stitches have not come out so clean but for the time being I am happy with the fact that I have finally finished the same. Here I have used long & short stitch, chain stitch, fishbone stitch & french knots. I have also added crochet pompom edging to the same.. courtesy Pinterest.

I am also working on this madhubani painting. Outlining is finished & now it needs colour. Hopefully I will share the complete  painting in my next blogpost.

Do let me know how it looks ??????? 

Take care and have a great week ahead :))



  1. To you too !!!!
    Beautiful creations !
    Have a great day !

  2. Your works are just awesome. I would like to suggest that you do your paintings(Madhubani or any other) which you think you are going to do good on cartridge sheets or in an arts book. This way they stay for longer.
    How did you do those tiny pom pom? Using crochet? Embroidery has turned out well. Thanks for the info on vasanth panchami. Here in South its not celebrated at homes but in few schools yes they do saraswati pooja.

    1. Thanks Vasudha !! Yeah you r right I do have a cartridge file where I do my sketches. This drawing was just a pass time & luckily it came out well :) The pom pom edging is crochet edging which I found here
