The BookShelf

The days are getting warmer and very humid, and summer is just beginning. The temperature is already nearing mid-30's!! Though I am looking forward to the holidays to spend time with V, I am dreading the heat.. sigh..

I started working on The BookShelf by LHN


I am loving the way it's shaping up. I feel this is going to be a quick stitch, atleast by my standards :)

That's about it today friends. Till next time.. Take care.. Be Happy.. Keep Stitching.. Au Revoir

A surgery and some beading

About 5-6 years ago I noticed that there was a small lump on my back on the left hand side. Doctors initially said that as long as there's no pain and it did not grow we need not worry about this. But over the years the lump grew though there was no pain, and it was quite prominent that people started asking what it was. That rang a bell and I did a checkup last September. It was found to be a Lipoma. Though it was nothing to worry about, I was advised to get it removed soon as it was growing and was beginning to breach into the back muscles.

So finally I had the surgery on 9th February and am just recovering. I am allowed to work from home during this period, so thankfully not bored to death yet

On the crafting front - V and I started the year with some quick beading using some of the beads I bought in South Africa

Finishing 2016 with a finish!!

Here's wishing everybody a very happy, crafty, fulfilling 2017!!


Yesss.. finally seashells is finished. I literally stitched my way into the new year. I was putting in the last few stitches in seashells when the clock struck 00:00 on 1st January 2017!! Isn't that a grand way to finish a year and start a new one


Isn't she a beauty. I started this in December 2011 and finished in December 2016. It has taken me exactly 5 years to finish this - phew!! V was beginning to ask me if I would manage to finish this by the time she reached college :)

So now I am totally excited to start working on my next project. It's going be a pattern from LHN - The Bookshelf.


I have kitted it up and all set to start. I also have accumulated quite a few strands of beads from all the travel this year. Hoping that 2017 is going to be a year dedicated to fulfill all my crafty dreams

Signing off with this today friends. Wishing you all a brilliant year again.

Take care.. Be Happy.. Keep crafting.. Au Revoir
