lace again..

I was working on different laces this week.I've finished drafting the pattern and chosen the colors for my next embroidery project.
                                                    
Tatting lace with #20 thread and a shuttle for a friend..The pattern is from an old Coats and clarke book.
                                         
 Crochet doily with #10 cotton thread..these motifs are a part of doily pattern from an Ondori book.
                                         
I've finished the knitted lace doily that you saw last week and it's not blocked yet so will show you the entire doily later.

Before I sign off.. thanks to all of you who have signed up for more information about the online class.I'll e-mail you as soon as possible..hopefully in September if everything goes as per the plan :)

Have a great week end !

lace …

I hadn't posted anything here for almost a month. Not that I was lazy or anything but I didn't feel like writing about the new projects until now … 

I had finished a couple of UFO's, pieced few blocks for a quilt,started a new crochet and knitted doily and did some basic sketches for another new pattern.
Here is my new lace doily..




I'm using knitting cotton and dpn's # 12 for this lace.

I had also finished writing instructions and started preparing the kits for an online class later this year. My mother is doing the test stitching for the online beginner cutwork class project right now. Drop me an e-mail if you are interested in this class..will send you the details as soon as I've finalized the class date.

See you next week with my new WIP's. Have a fun weekend!

Happy stitching!

fun sewing…

A new shisha embroidery pattern 'Desi pouch' is available for download in my etsy shop now.

Last week I spent most of my time sewing clothes.I had bought yards and yards of fabric last year and without turning them into clothes I can't buy more fabric :). If I add more stash then I'm sure I'll end up living in the balcony because there is very little moving space around :)
                                                      

                                         

I had fun sewing some pouches,needle,brushes and pencil rolls.Now these are on the way to a new home….

Happy stitching!
