Life has been really crazy of late. Work is extremely hectic. I have been returning from work only around 9pm whole of last week. I think that's how it's going to be the coming 2 weeks as well. Hope I will be able to complete the card I am making for DD's teacher. I have to complete it by the 8th!!!! :o
Thanks a lot for your comments on finishing forms. Ok, so I will settle for cardboard :d

Well, I did cook some palak paneer (spinach and cottage cheese) and that's about it. And I have been feeling so heavy lately, very sleepy, bloated... What's happening to me!!!!
I have no stitchy updates or pictures this time. Well, I actually do have a picture, but am yet to upload it to the system.
Hope to be up on my feet again. Wish me luck on that puullleeaase!!!

And guess what I did when I was browsing. I fell in love with this pattern library on patternsonline.
I now just can't wait to get my order from silkweaver and get working on one of these paterns. Also, now my wait for the fabric is shorter. Coz I got a mail today that my order has been shipped. Am all the more impatient now.
This reminds me of Calvin (of Calvin and Hobbes) where he is really really impatient to get his beanie. It's a hilarious one.
Have a great weekend ladies. And stitch lots :)

Am going to make a card with this for DD's teacher. School finishes in the first week of April. And her teacher has been really sweet. Am sure DD would be delighted too :).
Thanks a ton again for all your encouraging comments :)

This was how the dough looked just before the baking. As usual, not enough lighting :( And after the baking and cutting..... Voila!!!Don't they look yummy!!! and they really were. It was a big hit at home and with DD too, which is the most important factor. The main idea behind making granola bars was to somehow get her to eat some dry fruits.
This is a mini-kit I had bought more than 3 years ago when we were leaving Singapore to return to India.
I found a new way to carry around my small WIPs. This is a ready-to-stitch tote that my friend and I ordered from a site. Here's a closer look at the design.
I stitched this about 4.5 years back, when DD was just a few days old. I found this design in one of the books in the Singapore National Library, don't remember the book or the designer :(. But this is one of my all-time favorites. This has just been lying around and I had no clue how to put this to use, till I started this kit.
I am simply loving working on this kit. The colors are sooo refreshingly different from that of the peacock!!! Sigh, the peacock!!!

My picture does not do great justice to what it really looked like!! No celebration in India is complete without a Rangoli.
Oh and forgot to mention, I also bought a tin of circular altoids for a future project :d. So, one more to my stash!!!!
I plan to take my small work to MIL's tomorrow and work on it.
Some quick post this!!! Ok ladies, will bid adieu here. Have a ggrrreat day. Stitch loooots. As one of my colleagues told, PLEASE DO TAKE TIME OFF FOR YOURSELF THIS DAY!!!
