It is Friday!

In Bindu Designs on October 29, 2010 at 10:13 pm

It is again Friday and the weekend is here…Sunday is Halloween and I already bought a lot of candies.
Other than that I don’t have much to do with the trick or treating.
I was doing a lot of cleaning and the place look pretty nice. My friend will be coming tomorrow for a visit.
I did work on a crochet motif and it is kind of working now. First I experimented with some red Christmassy yarn. Then I got some size 10 yarns and made a pair of earrings.
I am sorry I didn’t get much time to take pictures of this new crochet adventure yet.
Since it is going to be the weekend, i am not sure of getting the computer for blogging. Usually weekends are busy for me. We usually go to library on Saturdays. Then there is always the weekly chores, like laundry, grocery shopping…Sunday I am going for the class at H&R block.


New Scarf ‘ n Cap

In Crochet on October 27, 2010 at 10:14 am

It was october 25 and it was Election day for Toronto. I was having this cheerful pink yarn and an idea to play with.
The idea was to make a scarf and cap all in one. So I started off with creating a skull cap in single crochet and double crochet. I didn’t write down the pattern: too bad for me.
I did a cross-stitch crochet to the long ear flaps.

As you can see, any scarf pattern will go with it. I choose the cross- stitch crochet to create some texture to otherwise plane pink.
Also, added a crochet flower on the crown.
It is so comfortable to wear in a cold day. The pink makes me smile.

The flower is big and cheery, after all it is me.

Pink crochet flower

I had much fun in crocheting these pink flowers.

There are so adorable and addictive. The pink thread is very shiny. I made a lot more than the 5 in the picture. They reminded me of the spring and newly bloomed flowers of spring.
i like pink and purple very much.
Sometime in the future, I may get a chance to combine the pink and purple.
Making crochet flowers is very fulfilling. I find them adorable and instantly satisfying. Considering the time it may take to finish a scarf or a blanket, they are very quick.
Thinking of crocheted flowers, the uses are almost endless. I used the flowers to update the look of my sweaters and blouses. Once I used a crocheted flower to make a greetings card. The recipient was very glad and she still has it.
The can be placed on a glass table to create a small display. I also think about framing some flowers to decorate my walls.

Crocheted Coaster.

I did crocheted a set of 4 coasters using cotton yarn. It was added to my Artfire studio, Someone like it and bought it. I shipped it over the weekend and glad to see that the buyer is happy to have the coasters.
Crocheting is very pleasing to me, especially using self patterning yarns. Because the yarn will create unexpected patterns with the stitches we use. Crocheted coaster

I am in a mood to create scarves. I made a purple scarf with white stripes. It is lovely.
The white strips on it creates a beautiful contrast.
I added the scarf to my Artfire store, which can be viewed at

I added a new collection to the Artfire. I selected the items from different artisans. Blue is the theme of the collection.
I always wonder at the serenity and calmness of blue. that is why I chose the title, Bliss of Blue.

I added my infinity scarf also in the collection.
This is a new one I recently finished and added to my Artfire studio.
