Ribbon embroidery on print out.





Hi everybody

Hope you all are doing fine and busy with your routine work and finding time in between for your passion/hobby be  it embroidery, knitting,stitching,  painting etc. etc. to inspire people like me.

Days have started getting hotter here in Delhi and that means, one cannot go out much unless and until it is absolutely necessary. Not forgetting summer also means eating mangoes, melons, ice creams, cold drinks. Every weather has its own charm. Mangoes, melon have their own tasty charm "BUT"  summers are definitely uncomfortable because there is no antidote for heat. I better stop crying about weather and tell you about my work.

Sometime back or should i say long time back i learnt from the net about taking out prints on the cloth on our personal printer at home and took out the following print out. I was happy with my job but i did not know what to do with it, whether to frame it just as it is or do some sort of embroidery on it and in this confusion this project got delayed. To be frank with you people i almost forgot where i kept it. At times this printout would play hide and seek with me, it would show up while cleaning cupboard and when i decided to do some work on it i would not recollect where i kept it.

Following is the printout of our deity Radha and Krishna. Very pleased with the outcome.


 After playing hide and seek with this print out for so long i finally decided to do ribbon embroidery on it. I only had white and off white ribbon at home that time so i went ahead with it to make leaves and also made small roses with red ribbon.



Did little thread embroidery too.



I had bought this bead string from my local embroidery store thinking it may be of some use sometime. I am happy to put it to good use here.



Here is the close up of tiny roses.



Once i finished making leaves with white ribbon i  painted them with green color.


Did little embroidery for bangles.



Only the lowest part remains to be worked upon. Because i was not able to decide what type of embroidery to be done on this part. I'll be back soon with the finished product.




Hope you like my work so far.

Take care and God bless.

Hi everbody

Oh my God, I did not realise that i was away for so long from blogger world . Its been almost  5 months since i posted something out here, not that i have done a great deal of work to show but still its better to be connected with friends to see what they have done and to learn new things.

My husband fell ill in dec. 2012, was down with high fever for almost 15-20 days which left him drained of strength and could not join duty for almost 2 months so i was busy looking after him and during that time my brother and his family came down to be with me, they were of great help. My husband is fine now and has resumed duty, Thank God.

I did no do much just completed my crochet shawl for myself and a crochet baby blanket for  our grand son.

I made use of my brothers visit and made him model my work. You can see blanket hanging at back.I have added a simple black color border to the shawl now, this picture was taken earlier.




 My nephew was very happy to model for my work with a promise to take him out for treat.








Sweater made by me for my brother, he wanted one with shawl collar.

Hope you guys like my work.

I'll be back soon .
 

Take care.

Patchwork


Hi every body

Hope you people are doing good.
I just could not bring myself to write after my mother-in-law's demise.  Actually there is not much to show to you people as i was pretty occupied with my MIL's illness and whatever spare time i could find and to boost my spirits i worked on two pillow covers sitting beside her.

I had been going through some beautiful blogs where these ladies have made some really excellent quilts using Hexagon and circles. These hexes really fascinated me and i thought of trying out these. I do not think i have those patience nor that talent to make such beautiful quilts but i certainly can use these hexes and circles to decorate my pillow or make complete pillow or cushion covers.

  So here is my hexagon flower with leaf on the pillow cover.




I learnt from Janet M. Davies blog how to make perfect circles so tried out these as well and put them on another pillow and surrounded these circles with little embroidery.
Have a look.



I enjoyed doing these and  now i plan to make cushion covers using these two.here is the picture of both pillow covers. Making these were pretty fast then doing embroidery and some change too.




  I have come across some beautiful applique/patchwork cushion covers on the net.
What do you have to say about these cushions covers with circles.


On this cushion and quilt  below the colors stand out on black background.




 Below is pillow cover using hexagon, so colorful  and good use of scraps too.



I love these and mind you these are just of many many beautiful things made by some very talented ladies out there. There is so much to learn everyday and so much to do.

See you later friends till then take care.
Pratima.
