Tatted coaster

Set of 4 coasters. My own design.


My tatting adventures!
I like this motif a lot. And it's the right size for a coaster. I've named it FOREST COASTER!(All forest colors!)

This paisley was a challenge. But very satisfying project. Got the pattern from here. I like this site a lot. Lots of thing to learn.
The other two motif are from here.Beautiful tatting with lots of pictures and graphs. Do check out these sites.

Sweetpea dress in lavender

This dress is for Frederika's doll. And Frederika loved it.

I used Anchor Knitting Cotton. The pattern was very simple although working in the back loops is not my fav. But the effect was like ripples. Beautiful!
The picture is not so good. Have to work on my photography skills.

A close up of the dress.

Spidey MP3 Pouch

A spiderman pouch for David, who wanted it for his MP3 player.

This was my own design. The pouch was the easy part. The web had me caught up!! Tried to embroider it but didnt work out. Finally ended up crocheting the web. I am happy with the result and David loved it.

With the holidays on, one of the most frequent comments I hear regularly is MOM! I'M HUNGRY...(AGAIN).So to satisfy such difficult paletes, I must come up with really quick & yummy food. This brownie recipe fits that bill to a tee. It got done in just 20 min. The Kids had fun helping me to make it. I got the recipe from here. Wait for it to cool a bit before cutting. Perfect with a scoop of ice-cream.

Yasmin got me hooked on to this. I used this pattern. It's adorable, quick to make and lots of fun too!

Still have to make ties and attach the flower too. But couldn't wait to show off!!

Pizza for dinner

Pizza for dinner? asks mom
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!! goes the kids.
So, pizza for dinner.

How? (Easy version)
Take (or make) a pizza base, spread ketchup on top, sprinkle oregano, put fav toppings (diced capsicum, onion, tomatoes, cooked chicken etc.) & mozarella cheese... grill under a flame till cheese melted & browned. Serve with salad. Yummmm... goes kids!!!

Springtime coasters

I saw these coasters by Doni Speigle on Ravelry and I just had to make them. These were very easy & fast. I did increase the rows as I was using Anchor's Knitting Cotton(perfect for such projects) and I wasn't getting the size. I had great fun making them and am sure you would enjoy making it too!

Weather Update

Thunder and lightning
and the rain pouring
what a glorious sight
I woke up to this morning!!!

I'm a poet today!!!!! I think rain brings out the creativity in me.
Now all I need would be a cup f tea & hot samosa. Anyone making?

My april fair

We have had a variety of climates today. The day started out by being very sunny, then it became very windy & dusty and then it drizzled a bit so all the dust settled down. And then it went back to being sunny & dusty & now its quite windy. And all this just shows that summer is right round the corner.

Friday was the day of arte's fair which is held every month at the Times Square Center in Dubai. Since I was taking part in it, I've had a very hectic time these past few weeks. The fair went very well,MashaAllah. Got lot of good response. And I did sell some of my stuff!! YAYYYYY!!!

I also got some Garn studio Muskat & Cotton Viscose yarn. BEAUTIFUL YARNS. Can't wait to make something with them.

Pictures of my fair.
