In retrospect, I probably should have posted about it much earlier, but I was soo occupied getting everything ready, it completely slipped my mind.

Anywhoo, I wish all of you could come and see the talented artists we have here in Kuwait πŸ™‚

I’m just setting everything up for tomorrow morning..its a BIG Day !!!

 

Chat over Coffee :)

Hello everybody!

Lets chat!

I have been super occupied with a TON of things and have missed this, terribly!!! So, today, I thought, I’d sit down and have a cup of un-rushed coffee and chat with you!!

I decided to use my crappy laptop camera for this image, simply because its a slow day for me today….. The coffee came out , looking like tea! Which means, I love all you guys who love tea πŸ˜‰

SO! I have been working on a couple of projects recently and have been loving, every bit, of this busy schedule, I’ve had for the past month or so! Among the many things, I’m looking forward to, is the KTAA (Kuwait Textile Arts Association) Fall Bazaar!

That’s because I’m participating as a vendor this year!!! YEEYYYY!!! I am super exited about being a part of it this year because I really wanted to be a vendor last year but had to step back, due to travelling and ill health 😦

BUT YEYYYYYY!!!! *clap*jump*clapclap*Β I had completely forgotten about their Fall Bazaar and only very recently, decided I’d signup for the vendorship πŸ˜›

So I have been trying to make stuff – knit, crochet, sew, quilt- so I have something to show for the Bazaar. I am happy with how things turned out, especially because I was struggling to complete some of the knitting projects, for a while and I got “RE-introduced”, to crocheting! Which by the way, is a topic for another day. Just know, that I learnt crocheting, very early on, as a kid and had a complete memory loss about it in my adult years!! Its weird really, but it happens ..trust me!

Well, when I realized, that I was much quicker crocheting, I ripped up a couple knit projects and re did them, in crochet. I was very proud of myself, its amazing how much the brain can remember. Slowly but surely, I’m working on newer crochet techniques and getting better. *thumbs up*

I have been more active on Instagram lately, just for the ease of access really. I used to hate using Instagram, but I have turned a new leaf. Facebook on the other hand, has been ignored a good couple years. I have no clue what my account looks like and have no interest whatsoever! Although, I do have a feeling I might have to fall back in love with it…. missing out on all the funny videos πŸ˜›

I have some really exciting news for you guys! I have been working on this, for almost two years and I think I will take a leap of faith and jump right into this one! Its definitely a new one for me, no bake shop this time around, I have other plans for that baby. I have decided, to take a plunge into the well of creativity and I’m really looking forward to when I can finally share it on here!

Just know, there’s some stuff getting ready, lots of shipping ….oh and did I mention prettiness???

Enough said!!!!

Loved this chat!! What have you been up to???

 

 

Easy Knit Baby Blanket!

Hey all!!

I know I have been absent, from this lovely blogging community..A LOT recently.. but I promise..lots of good is happening πŸ™‚

I wanted to catch up on some of the stuff, I really want to log on here and this is one of them!

I didn’t think, of watching, a you tube video for this project. I just picked up my yarn and knitting needles and got down to work!

I am pretty happy with the outcome and so is my son, who picked the colors and watched me work on this blanket. All I did was knit different colored yarns, from top to bottom..using the knit stitch! Its the most basic and the easiest of all stitches, but look how prettyyyyy

The best part about this project?? There are no measurements!!! Just eyeball the size you want and go at it!! I just made the blanket, to comfortably cover my son, on all four corners. Made it a bit bigger deliberately, so it can be used for a long time ….. I added the pom poms later, to give the blanket a fun vibe! My dearest boy loves them and so I love them too!! I had tons of leftover yarn, from some other projects I had been working on, so they came in very handy while making the pom poms πŸ™‚ Nothing was wasted! That makes me happy. πŸ˜€

I love it, when I can use all of the materials, I’m using in a project and waste nothing. It’s very satisfying to know, that I’m not wasting precious material. Plus, it can make someone really happy :)… just use all the little stuff from here and there and create something new!!

Have any of you been working on any itty bitty projects like this??

Lemme know!
