An Embroidery pillow……

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…..

Blogging after a long time……


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.
