Embroidery is something I really love doing, but I am always confused as to how to finish it or what to make out of it. I also love positive sayings and quotes around me. So this time I have tried to merge two of my likes through this design which is a free BOM from Jenny of Elefantz. She is a wonderful stitchery designer and I really love her work as well as her blog. I consider her as a great inspiration for a person like me who needs lot of motivation for progressing on the crafty side of my life.
I have used Jenny’s promises and borders design , but the saying inside the border is different than what she has stitched. I loved it once it was complete and decided to make it into a pillow, so that I can have it always in front of me.
Nowadays I am a little busy with other priorities but I will do my best to try and reduce the length of my to -do list and post some more finishes. One final picture of my pillow………
Until my next post its bye from Preeta…..

Life has been quite hectic recently, and I have been unable to give time to the crafty side of my life. But I did manage to complete another silk painting, this time an abstract one.
I have tried using a colorless gutta, to outline the picture and I felt that your lines need to be really perfect and flowing, to make it look good. I am not yet perfect with my lines and need to improve a lot. But we all know that only practice makes a man perfect. So I will keep on trying and improving my skills.
This picture has a glare, but this is the only close up of my painting I could manage.
Hope to try and do many more…. perfect ones. Until my next post, All of you out there, take care.
