Taking a break...

Pin It

... from blogging. Yes, I am. It is rather unexpected. My kid's school has closed for summer and we were planning to visit our parents, but not until the beginning of June. We had booked tickets for 2nd of June, but since my mom hasn't been keeping too well there has been a change in the plan and I am leaving tomorrow. My husband and son will be leaving on the 2nd as per plan.

My husband will have to take our kid along with him to his office for the next few days and the kid is so excited about this and earlier he didn't seem to bother about me leaving tomorrow but now he keeps asking why I had to leave him and go, that he would miss me a lot and even he wants to see grandma. Poor kid. I feel so bad. 

My dad has gone to visit my brother and he won't be home for another couple of weeks during which time I will not have access to internet. 

By the way, this is a new pattern. I love it. It is so bright and cheerful. I have not listed the pattern in my Etsy shop because the shop will be on vacation mode from tomorrow, but it will be available for instant download in my Craftsy store.

Also, as I mentioned in my earlier post I have launched my facebook page and there is the button at the sidebar. So please "like me" on my facebook page :) 

Thanks everyone for your comments. I may not be able to visit your blog now but definitely I will try to do it later.

Have a great month ahead. I will be back soon.

The red cottage - crochet wall decor

Pin It

I love houses, love them in any form, shape and size. I love especially these cottages/farm houses/salt box houses - whatever you call them. There are plenty of cliparts and cross stitch patterns that you can find on the internet of these cheerful and brilliantly colored houses with farms, trees and flowers around them, also cute little farm animals (those sheeps look adorable). By the way can you see the sheep here? It is not clearly discernible due to the colors.

Tried to recreate one such lovely scene using my yarns and hook. It is not bad, though I feel I could have done a better job. It looks alright in real, actually it looks wonderful, but when I see it through the photograph I could see the hastily done job. I should have blocked the square. Anyway, this had been in my mind for a long time and except for the few faults I am overall happy the way it has turned out. 

Also, do you remember those houses that I painted on my old furniture that I blogged about here? If you are a new reader you should take a look at it. I can never get enough of these houses. Oh, also there is this home sweet home. I almost forgot that.

I haven't been baking lately as much as I used to due to weighty issues. I had put on some weight and I am not able to reduce it, though I should admit that I haven't been trying hard enough. So I stayed away from baking for some time as my will power is not strong enough and a major portion of the baked goody ends up in my tummy. This time too I was left with the biggest share of the tangy lemon cake that I baked
because my son hates lemon cake, a fact which was well known to me and which did not deter me from trying out the recipe ;)))

Sorry, I don't have the link. I forgot from where I got the recipe.

Also, I have launched the hobbyhopper facebook page. Now, I am not that facebook-savvy and may take some time to fully understand it. Anyway, I will put it in my sidebar soon and you can "like me" if you like.

Have fun!
Have a happy weekend!

Striped Owl Purse

Pin It

After seeing so many crocheted owl stuff in the Internet I too wanted to make one. Initially I thought I would make an owl beanie, but there are too many of them and most of them look similar. I wanted something different. The next thing that came into my mind was a bag. I wanted it to be striped but was unsure of the colors. I felt bright and gaudy colors would be more appropriate.

Now, don't ask me what happened to the wall decors that I was talking about in my previous post. I started one, it is almost over.  Now that I have got this out of my mind I would be able to concentrate on that. Hopefully, I should be able to finish it within a day or two.

The pattern for this bag is available in my shops.

Couple of flower photos before finishing.

Cupcake Wall Decor

Pin It

Hey, how are things in your part of the world? Nothing much going on here. It's been a while since my last post, isn't it? I think I am developing a serious case of writer's block, or rather, blogger's block. I really didn't know what to blog about. I haven't made anything interesting to share with you and I didn't have internet for a few days which, surprisingly, did not drive me that crazy as it usually does. I think I am losing my mojo for blogging.

Anyway, here is something that is interesting enough to share with you all. I think it's really cute. Don't you?

I am absolutely delighted with this and planning to make more similar ones. You can find the pattern in my shops. I will come back when I have made another one. Meanwhile, thanks everyone for your lovely comments for my previous post and thanks a lot for visiting me even though nowadays I am turning into a bad blogger. I will try to be good :))
