Happy to be back with a post……


After a long time I got the mojo to do some sewing,  and I wanted to do a quick finish .   Sometime back  while browsing through some crafty blogs I found a nice cozy table topper, which really inspired me to make  one.  The pattern was by Joan Grenke , featured in quilt mag  and it was made of  wool felt.

Since, I love doing  appliqué,  I thought I will do the same in appliqué  using fabric.   And  here’s the one I finished.


I have used cotton fabric for the leaf  which  is  appliquéd on the circular green fabric and the whole green circle  is again hand appliquéd onto the yellow printed fabric. 

My dear friend Nima gave me this idea to make a nice neat circle using square blocks, and I used the same method to make the  star shape around the circle.

Though a small project, I feel   happy that I started something after a long break,  and hope this mojo continues.

Please do send in your lovely, encouraging comments , It will really encourage me to do more.

Back after a long and rejuvenating holiday……

Its  been really very long since I have blogged or visited my blogging friends,  but I was travelling from one place to the other  and couldn’t access the internet.   However,  I enjoyed every bit of my holiday, spending time with my family back home in
India and  the best part of our holiday was our trip to Malaysia and Singapore.

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip and kids freaked out too.  Other than sightseeing, shopping and fun  I was thrilled…. to be able to  meet my blogging friend Zura  in Malaysia who came all the way to our hotel to meet me.  Thank you Zura……  ( I am sending  you our snap soon.)  It was so…. nice of  you.   I hope you too will soon make a trip to Oman whenever it is possible.


Malaysia was beautiful, and Singapore  was fun we enjoyed every moment of our stay .  I am pasting some snaps here.


Above  is the view  from the Kuala Lumpur Tower, which is called KL Tower.


This  place  was of  great interest for me and I am sure all craft lovers would find it very interesting.  Batik craft of Malaysia.

I was extremely impressed by their free hand designs…….


Zura was also kind to gift me a beautiful  batik fabric which I am unable to show  you all since after coming back my camera is not working.


And last  but not the least ,  With the three men  in my life…DSCN0784

Now I will take some time to come back to my crafty journey, since I am settling  down and managing  without a maid too.

Till  my next post , its Bye from Preeta.
