Baby Dress Camille for Shania

My sweet little girl Shania is off to Indore to visit her grandparents and to attend the wedding of her Aunt. I wanted to make something for her before she left, something very pretty . I started my hunt on the internet and I came across this dress , I immediately fell in love with it. Now I knew what I had to make for my Shonu ( I call her Shonu ). I wanted to make it in the same color combination so I rushed to the store the very same day and luckily got  a some what similar shade of pink color ( It is actually pink but in the photos it looks like peach ) in Laura Knitting Cotton Collection. I was so much eager to make the dress that I left all my work and started my project I completed the dress the same night.

After completing it I was waiting to see if it fits her properly because I was getting a lot of negative comments that it wont fit her , I had made it with so much love and was positive that it will definitely fit her and it did fit her but the length was a little short so I had to increase it by two more rounds, she was looking so pretty after wearing it ( Sorry I couldn't get good pictures of her with the dress).

She is gone for a month and I am already missing her. Shonu come back soon.

The colorful earplug - Part II

Recently a friend of mine came across one of my post “The colorful earplug” , he was so impressed by it that he immediately wanted the same to be done to his earphone. He wanted it to be in the colors of Bob Marley ( Green, Yellow and Red ) and luckily yarn with this combination was available at the store,  I was saved the tension of working with three different colors.

After the makeover the earphone looked much more cooler than the one I had made for myself I didn't feel like giving it back to him.

All my cousins are now behind me do it for them, I think I will be surrounded with earphones for a while now.

Story of a Ringworm

Hello friends I am back and after a long time... I had been going through a tough time for a while, maybe it is not a big problem or maybe I am taking it too seriously... Its been more than a month now that I had got a mosquito bite on my hand and I had scratched it, it became a rash, a kind of small circle had formed, I applied Betnovate to it and it subsided but after a few days a bigger circle had formed around the smaller one.. I decided to see a Doctor for this, the doctor informed me its just a case of contact dermatitis, a kind of allergy he gave me heavy antibiotics which made me drowsy, the whole day I felt nauseous, my mouth became dry... I had put complete faith in my doctor and was having the medicines sincerely but the circle was spreading outwards, becoming bigger and bigger..Many people told me that it maybe a ringworm by the looks of it. I too felt it must be a ringworm but my doctor strictly told me it is not.... After a month of taking heavy medicines with no positive result I lost faith in the doctor....I was so upset about this thing, I didn't feel like blogging or crochet or anything creative as this thing dominated my mind the entire time.... 

My father had asked me to go to a famous Hakim ( A physician using traditional remedies) Mulla Abdul Husain Bakri Malampatiwala, these guys are treating skin diseases since more than 100 years now I had heard a lot of praise about them by many people and I decided to go to him and I am so glad I took this decision. He informed me that this is actually a ringworm, he gave me a cream to apply on my hand, it is six days now that I am applying this cream and this thing has started to subside I am just praying to God that it goes off completely so that I can concentrate on other things.

I was having Pringles yesterday and thought of recycling the tin and diverting my mind by doing something creative. I wrapped it with yarns of different shades , I used fabric glue to stick the yarn around the tin. It now sits on my table holding my hooks.

Looking  forward  to more of such creative fun. I have so many projects which I need to start because of this ringworm I have wasted a lot of my time and need to get back on track. I am trying to catch up with all my blogger friends I am so sorry was not able to visit you guys but now I am back in action. 



P.S. Please pray for me so that my hand is free from this ringworm infection.

Baby caps and a no phone day

While I was rushing for office today, I left my cell phone at home and so its "a no phone day" today ...As soon as I got in the bus I realized I have left my phone at home.....Yes it did upset me for a while but later on I thought lets see how a day goes by without using a cell phone, an experiment of a sort.. This incidence made me realize a small phone makes a lot of difference in our lives , cell phones have made life so easy... Now no more worrying about the cell phone episode and lets move on.... 

I made a few baby caps yesterday for all those who had requested it.... I made two of these caps in the same color combination one for a friends daughter and one for my cousin's daughter..

This owl cap was there on my to-do list for a while.. This one is for the guy who runs the mess in my office, its for his Son. He was requesting me for a cap since a long time..... I loved the expression on his face of disbelief and happiness..

How could I not make one for my darling baby Shania... I made her this turban  cap... I am sure she is going to love it... I found the pattern for this turban cap here 

Lastly I would like to share that I made some whole wheat chocolate pancakes yesterday with the recipe Pradeepa of The lazy Hobbyhopper had shared on her blog... Thank you so much Pradeepa for the lovely recipe I enjoyed making them and  my family loved it.......


It's a Basket again...

Yes !!! it is a basket again... I told you it is addictive...I will have to stop myself otherwise I will end up making a lot of them..Hopefully my next project will be something else... Maybe the baby cap I made for Shania , it is in great demand , many of them have requested for the cap and it will be rude not to fulfill them.

I have made this in same colors as Shania's cap, I am in love with this combo..

How lovely it feels to sit down with some crochet , it really relaxes me,  all problems disappear for a while...

 There are lots of things on my crochet to-do list this basket was one on my list, therefore, I am very glad I made it...I hope the same way I will  finish off making the others too on my list...

Basket Addiction

I have been wanting to make a basket since a very long time but somehow I couldn't start one...It was only after getting inspired by Tanna's "basket therapy” that I kick started one and seriously !!seriously!! it's addictive!! you just cannot stop at one. A project which gets completed in just a matter of time and guess what I am thinking of starting another one... Small things in life give such a lot of pleasure....

There was a pile of left over cotton yarns which had accumulated since a year now and I was thinking of a project to utilize them....As I was browsing through blogs , I came across a post from Bunny Mummy where she had utilized leftover yarns in making bowls and so I came up with this idea of making the basket out of these leftover yarns.

I am really bad at photography and therefore I have started checking out different features in my camera to develop my photography skills. When I complete a project I am in a rush to click pictures completely forgetting about the technical things which are involved in taking good pictures. But now I have made a point to click good photographs of my projects. 

I hope I have got some good shots of this basket.

Lots of love,
