Spring Time and Updates

Hello to all of you...thanks for visiting my blog and leaving sweet comments on my previous post. Spring time is fun and I decked up my house last week with little touches of spring beauty....sweet little birdies are my all time favourite ...

 and some more in other corner of the house....

Pretty duct tape is finally put to use... covered the old baby wipe box and plastic container. I printed this image too...idea is to paint something similar but I am enjoying this for now.

Reading a mystery book " The Potted Gardener",  these days, picked it from my local library. I love my library(so thankful for it) and they have enormous collection of books. Doing little changes in my life style too, drinking more water and smoothies and cutting down on tea/coffee these days.... 

and here are the pictures of doily I shared in my previous post ...I had a hard time following the directions and I stopped it after a while. I guess, making a square shape is easier than the round one. More practice is what I need. I am pinning doily patterns these day on my pinterest board. Hopefully, I will be able to make them. It is a work of patience for sure... 

whipped up these last weekend and I am ready to switch to yarn crocheting. Thread crocheting is little difficult to me. That is the summing up of my week. Tell me what you are up to? Is there any new project you are doing or any new interests? Do share your thoughts!   

See you soon,

Needle Book

Hello Dear Friends...Welcome to my blog. Today, I am going to share with you the latest additon to my sewing kit or should I say,a sewing purse kit! 

My daughter was no longer liking this cute little leapfrog purse, so I took it gladly and turned it into my sewing kit.Though everthing was neatly organized in it but, I was not happy with the way I was keeping my needles...  

not tidy at all, adding to this I was losing them too. Everytime, I used it, I told myself you better keep them nicely. 

 Finally, I took this project and made a cute little needle book. It didn't take me long to finish it because  I used my trusted glue gun....yeah I know very classy of me to make a needle book with glue gun. The only sewing I did is to attach to small felt rectangles to the bigger one (as in the picture below)  rest is covered with ribbon using hot glue gun. 

Now everything is under control and I don't have to waste my time searching for loose needles.

 Yipee!! one thing off from my checklist. So if you are storing your needles like I was, make yourself a cute little needle book. It is so much better this way!

That's all for this time, I will catch up with in my next post. Here is the link to  Pinterest Boards. Hope you'll enjoy the beauty of cute little needle books.

Vintage Flowers



Hello Dear friends...Hope you all are doing well. We have been blessed with warm weather here from last couple of days and I am loving it. Well... that explains my absence here..enjoying lovely days and chirping of early birds between the daily chores. Though today has bought cloudy and gray sky with little chill in the air but weekend is going to be great as per weather reports. I have planned to clean up and do some gardening this weekend. I can't wait to see blooming garden this year. But for that I have to wait a little bit. House need some sprucing up too and cleaning as well. I love changing house decor a little bit as the season changes just to bring freshness in the surrounding. Do you like it too? As spring is just around the corner, this week, I was looking for some painting inspiration and stumbled upon a fabulous website called The graphics fairy.  I loved it. It has lot of free vintage clip art and free images, decor and project ideas as well. All the pictures above are from there, I have linked them as well just in case you guys are interested. Since Spring season is here I feel like picking up my brush, color and paint some pretty flowers this weekend. What are your plans? Do share!

See you soon here

Happy Weekend

 Hello you all are doing? Hope you all get some time to relax after Holi this weekend. Friday came so quick...isn't it? This week was like a blur for me...and I can imagine with Holi prep your lives must be very busy too. Today was bitterly cold here and I decided to snuggle in my bed with my laptop and write this post. March is here...spring will bring its beauty soon. This week, I went out to market... got the usual grocery stuff and some goodies (lot of things in cool spring colours.... so hard to resist them). Beautiful duct tape in the first picture compelled me to buy them...sure you will be seeing me  using them in my projects. I am getting ready for gardening some flower seeds for my backyard garden. My granny crochet pillow finally finished so I can now focus on my other ongoing project. Learning doilie making these days so I included that in the picture too. Tell me what you are up to? Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Enjoy & Relax
