I have boxes full of left over #20 size Anchor crochet cotton threads from earlier projects. My mother and I leave our thread/fabric scraps in the same place so it was easier to sort them out.
With no plan in my mind I began crocheting small squares...
I joined some of the squares with black thread.
Initially I thought black might over power the other colours but now I kind of like it..
But I am still not sure whether to go with black or change it.Please feel free to leave your thoughts..

I was always fascinated by handloom fabrics and one of my wishes was to learn the art of weaving someday. I'm so happy that I was able to do that this year.
After learning the basics from a master weaver my friend and I decided to weave a stole.
Close up of the pattern..
There are a couple of mistakes and some tension issues but I will work harder to get it correct...
I was really worried whether I'll be able to remember all the math and get the pattern correct but after few hours of weaving I'm in a happy place..

Today this blog is entering fifth year and I just popped in to thank y'all for your support and love.
I can't sign off without showing an embroidered piece today so here it is..
A small purse with shisha embroidery.
The ground fabric is muga silk and I've used both cotton and silk threads for the embroidery.
