Hi everybody,

We here at Delhi have been having heavy showers everyday. Our small roof garden is lush green now. All the plants look so neat and clean and the best part is that because of rains one does not have to water the plants so, that means one job less.....in daily routine, at least for a few days. I am finishing my anchor kit embroidery and by the time i write and post this i am sure i would have completed and taken a photograph of it to be posted along with this present edition of my blog. Meanwhile i am preparing for my next stump work project plus my ribbon roses are crying out to be put in designs.
Its nice to have something on hand to keep you busy. You do agree with me, i know.

I would like to share some of my embroidery work done earlier.

These are table cloths plus i have made five cushion covers. i have not taken the photographs of cushion covers.

Below are the pillow covers. I love to put some embroidery on my pillow covers as these are small projects and do not take very long to finish.

Wow! at last it is done. Here is my finished anchor kit embroidery. A happy shepherd returning home after a days work done satisfactorily, with his flock of goats.

While going through craft websites today i realised that i should let my blogger friends know about this beautiful site of cross stitch patterns which provides lots and lots of designs which one can buy or download lots of free designs which they provide. You have to register yourself first (procedure is easy and registration is free.)
Once you register, one can download previous free designs too and they are just bea.........utiful. You would love them. Just have a walk through this site and i bet you would like to stay there. At present this site is providing one x-stitch flower per month for the year 2010. Click on the link below and download PDF file for each month flower.

http://www.maurer-stroh.com/EMS2010_information.html copy these free designs . click each one design and you can down load PDF files for these.

There is one more site i had come across few days back. Let me check it out and i will get back to you.

Yes.... it is http://patternmakercharts.blogspot.com/ Do go through this site and you will find beautiful cross stitch designs ( you have to surf for designs) I found some beautiful ones.

Here are some pictures of laces to adorne my sarees and dresses with.

These laces shows amount of work still to be done by me.

Bye for now and see you soon.
