Projects Completed.. Part 2

Well.. This had to be posted much earlier. but the laziness of drafting.....

This is a headband I had made for Z's friend as Christmas gift last year


My First potholer that I had made.. earlier I was afraid to make things with different colors.  but now I am Liking it.. Pattern over The Green Dragonfly

I always wanted to make a hexagon.. so just made a hexagon doily.

Bags Bags Bags..

The first one is inspired from the Lucy's Blog..
The second is my very own attempt.. the stitch is from the book 250 Basic Crochet Stitches. I Love this book.. It was gifted by my Husband..

Lazy Blogger

Hi and Hello..

Long Time...These days I dont get time to blog. I just read the blogs and leave
Had been to Bhopal for a wedding. Just back yesterday and I am still doing laundry and cleaning my house.

Visited LakshmiNarayan temple called as Birla Mandir. Manav Sangrahalaya  & Van Vihar National Park.

The people from Bhopal relish lots of ice cream I guess.. there are shops named Top n Town at regular intervals.
The wedding was just fantastic +  food was awesome.

Posting a few pics of the Diwali and my Z..

The coloring books we bought for her to keep her busy while travelling..
and yes she handles her colors well...
she knows red yellow green and blue...picks up a crayon matches with the picture and says..
Mumma Ye dekho mil gaya mujhe ( See I Got the color)

She loves flowers..

and yes not to forget the yarn that I had ordered from Mumbai..
I Think that needs a separate post :)

Cya and Shine On....

Navratris... Oh my daughter loved playing dandiya and garba this year... she enjoyed it so much that even after dussehra she wanted to get ready and go down...
every other day she was invited for the kanchka..
this 31st was my Hubby's 30th birthday.. so was busy with his birthday celebration..

 Trying to engage my Z in all kinds of activity these days.. I want to reduce her TV time...

She Loves CHOTA BHEEM.. she can sit for the whole day and keep watching...
Hence Less blogging and crocheting these days..

In the meantime I got my yarn from Pradhan Embroidery Store and a Crochet book from HOMESHOP 18..

Projects Completed.. Part 1

There goes my second post.. Weekends I dont get time to use computer... plus hubby's friend and his wife had come to our place for lunch. Then we went to check out the progress of our new home..

As mentioned in the earlier post would like to share my attempt to crochet.

 This I made when I was expecting my baby..  in 2009 -10 did knew whether a Boy of Girl so could not decide upon the colors.. hence used both pink as well as white.. smart!!

Thats my Zyana sleeping :)

and Then I made this another blanket for her.. this multicolored yarn was brought by my hubby when he had been to Chandigarh. My In Laws stay here
The flowers are from Lucy's Attic 24

 I Love this Bag.. It keeps on growing. Zyana stuffs the Stuffed toys in her.. You can find the Pattern here.. I made 2 extra rounds for base.. so as to make it big .

Take Care for Now Cya..

And Yeah Sangeetha jee. Thanks for welcoming me and being very first follower.. I Love the Chirpyness that you have in your blogs
