TUSAL and some beading

Hello dear friends. It's getting reaaalllly hot in Chennai now. Today the mercury is at 90, and it's not even the hottest summer yet. Dread what May is going to bring in

So, with that, let me show you some home made ice "lollies" that V and I made
We made some thick and syrupy orange tang and poured them into ice trays as we did not have the ice molds. And had it topped with hershey's chocolate syrup, boy was it yummm :)

I worked on some more bead projects last weekend
I made this with dark brown crystals and gold beads. This is for my cousin again.

 Here's a closer look at the necklace.

 This one here is for V to wear for the wedding that's coming up next week. She's extremely thrilled about it and wants bracelet and ear-rings to go with this!!!

I totally forgot that last week was new moon :( Here's my TUSAL for the month
All threads are from the cottage SAL. I have not been working on anything else since Jan.

And last but not least, look what arrived!!!
Yep, April and May are here. Now I better start working on March!!!!

With that my dear friends, I take leave from you for now. Thank you all soooo much for stopping by and leaving behind your comments :)
Till we meet again.. Take care.. Be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir

..Feb cottage is finished!!!
It is going to be in hibernation for a year, till I can put this up in time for next year.

I have an (brilliant!?!) idea. I am going to work on multiple projects from now. One day on cottage and the next on my Girl picking seashells
 Currently here is where it stands
I hope this works. Till then my dear friends.. Take Care.. Be Happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir

After a long silence..

..am back. Hello my dear friends. First of all, thank you very very much for your kind wishes and comments on our anniversary. I am really overwhelmed and very deeply touched.

I have been away from any kind of crafting for almost a whole month now. My brother and his family visited India on a holiday for 3 weeks and also to celebrate my niece's 1st birthday. It was an absolutely lovely 3 weeks.

Last weekend was a good one crafting-wise. After about 4 months, I did some beading
This is for my cousin to go with one of her sarees.

Next, some sweets - nope, this is a no-bake dessert.
Choco-mint Oreo cookie balls. Recipe is from here. I did not have white chocolate. So, I made a choco-mint topping instead. It is absolutely yummy

Last but not the least, an update on Feb cottage. As much as I wish, I do not yet have a finish. It is still WIP and here it is
Doesn't it look gorgeous!! I  simply love the colors there. Am hoping to put in the last few stitches tonight. Those are my new q-snaps that I had shipped to bro before he came. I guess I could buy more snaps of other dimensions and mix-n-match.

So, my dear friends, such is my update for today. And again, thank you soooo much for stopping by and leaving behind your lovely, kind, encouraging comments.
Till my next update.. Take care.. Be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir
