About the Trip

Last weekend we visited Sri Pandaripura Shetra along with a group of 500 persons. People had come from Bangalore,Madurai and Chennai. The organisers had done an excellent job as they had taken care even finer details like booking trains to and fro and accommadation ,Food etc., with careful advance planning and good team work. We had a very good darshan of Lord Sri Panduranga and Sri Rukmani in the backdrop of Namasankritan and Abangs. We also had a holydip at Chandra Baha River.

After coming back did health checkup and doctor advised to change my life style in eating habits.i.e.,Timely eating instead I didn"t.Now I am practicing little by little to eat at regular time and healthy food.
So far I didn't touch my WIp's.I am planning to finish one by one ,meanwhile some of my blog friends asked about the Basting spray used in my last post.
Basting spray is used for sticking the three layers.I bought this from Singapore.I dont know whether it is available in Bangalore
That's all for this post,see you soon with my finished project.

This is my first project in quilting.I used the cloth available at home to make these patches.

After a lot of confusion I finally arranged these pieces and made 9 patch format and sandwiched these pieces by wadding and backing cloth and used  Basting spray.

Before starting to quilt I want to try free motion quilting and this is the result.For quilting I used Quilting foot .

Finally I completed my project .Though it was difficult to stitch in the machine loved the final outcome and before ironing I posted it.

Crochet Granny Square

Crocheting granny square is really interesting but at the same time joining them is little bit difficult.Joining this, I learned from here .This is made to use as Mat.This will be a gift to my father as he does Pooja everyday .He can use it for that purpose.

Crochet V stitch

I was not able to post or view my dashboard last week.I think all of you have the same problem.I used V stitch which is very easy and fast and used it for car seat back.But I think the colour is not matching isn't it?
