Embroidered Sarees - Festival Special







I


Dear Readers, 

I was never a fan of wearing Saree's and always thought embroidered Saree to be too tacky and shiny. But when I saw these Sarees I just had to buy them. I love the superior quality of the fine embroidery and also the fact that its suttle and does not have too much bling. 

The mustard yellow Saree has fine Kashmiri hand embroidery which is unique to every Saree. 
Do share your favourite handicrafts too

Greeting Cards- Pencil Colours

Dear Readers,

Today I am sharing some of my Diwali card designs. 


 















Since childhood I always loved making seasonal cards and gifting to relatives and friends. Now I don't make cards so often and in past few years I have even stopped sharing it with friends.... so these are few of my cards which I never shared.                    
I saved these card with me because I have written few favorites quotes and tried my calligraphy skills too.

Hand Embroidered Saree - Grandma's Creation

Dear readers,
Today I would like to share a beautiful handmade gift which is very precious for me . My grandma embroidered this Saree and gifted me for my first Diwali after our wedding. So it has a very special for me.


My Grandma learnt special embroidery stitch "Kantha work" and she immediately tried it on this Saree. she also adorned all the flowers with kundan (artificial rhinestones). I love the small even stitches across the design. 
The embroidery is on the skirting of the Saree and pallu. I like the small flower motif is used on pallu and rest of the Saree is left plain. This gives it a very delicate look. 


She even embroidered the blouse sleeves for me. 

I will share many more Saree embroidered my grandma in coming months.. Do let me know your views, suggestions


Happy Crafting....!!!

Handmade Jewellery - Grandma's Creation

Hello crafters, 
I am very happy to share these beautiful handmade necklaces made by my Grandma. She recently learnt how to make the beads and join them to make a necklace. So obviously she made the first one for her greatgranddaughter and granddaughter (me) as a Diwali Gift :) All of them are chokker style and made from imitation jewellery pieces.
