Sorry for the delay in posting this Lynn :)
Thanks a lot for your encouraging comments about my napkin. This is not a set of napkins. I had bought a few napkins to send to school with Vaishnavi. As this was plain, thought of trying my hand at it :)

I am not completely sure what is wrong with this, though. Maybe it needs some backstitching to highlight? Did I chose the wrong shades of thread? I just ran through my stash of threads and mixed 2 shades of rose. I used 2 strands, so 1 strand of a light rose and another of a slightly darker shade. Got this design from the book "Cross stitch silhouettes". Please do give your feedback as comments, as that would definitely help me with future projects.
The peacock is currently sitting pretty where it is :(. Don't feel like touching it right now. So, looking for some 3 dimensional project, something like a scissor fob. But then, can somebody please tell me, what do you use to stuff inside a scissor fob?
My list for hubby dear is almost done ;). Hope to place my orders (on the net) by this weekend. And it definitely does not end there, am sending him personally to some stores to buy some more stuff :d

With sooo much activity, could not get too much stitching done. But here are the pictures of my progress all the same.

On the cooking front, as my entire family is crazy of paneer (cottage cheese), made paneer in mint gravy. Was bored making the usual tomato gravy. Sorry, forgot to take a picture of the paneer. But it sure was yumm (as anything paneer is).
