Dastkar Nature Bazaar Bangalore 2015

On Sunday I made it to the last day of  Dastkar Nature Bazaar. And I’m so glad I did. The last few weeks have been a bit crazy and this exhibition came as a welcome break. Shopping at such places can be quite daunting – everything looks so beautiful you want to buy everything!! Some […]

DIY Chandelier with Fairy Lights

We moved to our current house in December and though it had light fixtures, the living room was missing a central light source. So I thought – Why not have fairy lights in the living room 🙂 I love fairy lights. I think they are just magical. I’ve always had them in my Craft Room. […]

  My mother loves the colour mustard . It works very well with grey. And that’s what inspired this baby blanket. Its a simple rectangular blanket in garter stitch knit with 4.5 mm needles which gives it an open texture. The border is crocheted in a shell stitch pattern. It measures around 30 x 36 […]

Printed Culottes

Remember the palazzo pants I made early last year. This is from the same pattern. I used cotton this time and to make my culottes just reduced the length. Medium weight cotton worked just great and it was really nice to work with cotton after so long. I used one of my machine stitches to […]
