A new arrival!!

Guess what, we have a new arrival in the family. My sister-in-law gave birth to a beautiful little girl on the 20th March early morning!!! Am I a happy aunt now :d:d:d. Well, we are not allowed to take any pictures of the baby till she's atleast 45 days old. So, can't share any pictures now

I did catch up on some crafts last weekend. First some new baking.
I tried my hand at eggless marble cake. I used my regular eggless sponge cake recipe by Nita Mehta for this. Vaishnavi helped me with the "marbling" effect :d
And it came out real yumm. I added some walnuts too for a change

On the beading front...

This is a new set I made.. well for myself!!! Like hubby says "If you do everything for yourself, do you plan to sell anything at all"??!! Good question, ain't it? Hehe. But I sooo love this!!!

But then, these days many of my aunts are coming to me to string something for them. I think that is great progress, right?

And yes, I do have a stitchy update too!!

I admit, the progress is a teeny weeny bit. But of late I've not been able to put in a stitch a day :( Anyway, am happy with atleast this much progress definitely. I plan to gift this to somebody, still thinking whom to :)

Tried my hand at changing the format by including the images on the sides. For some reason, there were too many gaps between each image and the next line once I published!! So, am reverting back to my original format

So that's all from me for now. Till my next update.. Take care.. Keep stitching.. Be happy.. Au Revoir :)

Hey all, hope you all have been doing great and stitching a lot :)
Yep, am excited and very happy. Guess why!! My dear bro had been to the US for a short period and wasvery very kind to get me some stuff a.k.a STASH!!!!
And here I go showing off all my new stuff to you. First the beads he got from Michael's
This is the assorted beads he bought
Anndddd... check out my new patterns...

Thank you sooo much Meari for suggesting some good sites :) I ordered these from What a collection of patterns they have!!

And now for some crafty updates.. Last sunday Vaishnavi was very adamant that she wanted to do something "Art and crafty" with me!!! So, here's what we did
This was a plain mobile phone holder that I had won in a competition years ago. We decided to give it a makeover.

Finally for some stitchy updates, albeit a very teeny progress :(
Am really liking the way this is turning out. Love the combination of colours :) Can't wait to finish it.
Thanks a lot Lynn for showing me how to make the change. Would change it soon :)
So, that's all from me for today. Till next time... Au Revoir.. Take care... Keep Stitching :)
