Well , the latter part of the title has got nothing to do with my post ...ha ha...just that I could not think of any title and this sounded good so I added it :)
Here is the feather in my cap . My first cross stitch design , Summer cards , got published in the April-June 2017 issue of the ' Anchor Needle n Thread ' magazine , India :)
Life was busy last few weeks . Anshita's summer vacation started from 21st April . We attended my cousin's wedding last month and met my family and relatives . Anshita wore a lehenga/half-sari . It is similar to a sari with top and long skirt but the wrap around is just two meters instead of five meters . She was looking very cute !! :)
Anshita with her cousin , Piyush (my brother's son)
I also made mehendi/henna for her . I am not good at it but I managed to make her happy :)
Also , visited a newly opened craft store and got some random stash .
Burlap ribbons and hemp ropes
Some assorted things - mini easels , watering can chalkboard
textured paper and felt sheets , mini chalkboard for my craft room
Few buttons and sewing supplies
Hobby books (purchased online)
I am enjoying Anshita's company at home with ACs and electricity bills running all time high :) We got self-ligating dental braces fitted for her and now, after two weeks, the discomfort has reduced and she can eat regular food instead of soft mashed ones .
Hope you are doing well and enjoying your time :)
Happy crafting !!
