I've got Mail...!!

Well,actually it is a package. From the Pony Craft Store!

 Pony crochet hooks and knitting needles are easily the best you can get. Even though they were available on foreign sites, none of the craft shops I visited across states, seemed to have the whole range in spite of the fact that the needles are produced in India! So, when I saw that Pony now had an online store I rubbed my hands with glee. I placed my order as soon as possible.
Would you like to see the goodies in my parcel?

1. Set of crochet hooks with plastic handles. I have been on the look out for crochet grips or pencil grips for the past few months but sadly they are not available in India, so I ordered these hooks instead. I only wish the handles were in rainbow colors, the set would have looked gorgeous.


Already have all these sizes, but these hooks were ordered in anticipation that in the distant future I will be needing thicker grips.

2. Hairpin crochet set


 Hairpin crochet has been on my to-learn list for a long time and a shawl is what I plan to try out.
Wish me luck.

3. Crochet hook size 20 mm.



What a fantastic looking hook! I have purchased this for dual purposes - as a giant crochet hook and I hope to use the handle for broomstick crochet which is also on my to-learn list.

4. Circular and double pointed knitting needles.


This purchase has been inspired by Monika of Smoking Hot Needles. She makes the most fantastic socks that I have ever seen and she must be knitting really fast as literally every post has a new pair of socks!! Even if I make only one pair of socks I will feel that the needles have been worth while. She also creates magic with her spinning skills, which I do not hope to learn in this lifetime.

5. Assorted knitting helpers.


Have been looking for these knick-knacks for a long time....finally I have them!

6. Rotary Cutter


I recently purchased a book on quilting and I hope to make atleast one quilt in this life. But before that I will have to learn how to use the rotary cutter.... ha ha.

7. Cross stitch towel kit.


Always wanted to flaunt beautiful guest towels and brag that I did the embroidery !!


Well, now that I have created excuses for each and every item I bought I can rest in peace :)

Hope you enjoyed this online shopping with me.

Liebster Blog Award

I was pleasantly surprised to see that I have been awarded the Liebster Blog Award by Mira of Mira's Talent Gallery.

I accept it gratefully (gleefully). Many thanks dear Mira. I am so thrilled....(blush,blush), I was not expecting an award so soon.


The origins of the Liebster Blog award are somewhat unclear but the general consensus is that it originated in Germany, "Liebster" meaning favorite or dearest, to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. Upon accepting the award the recipient must then pass it on to five more blogs of note.


Here are the rules:
1- Choose FIVE up and coming blogs to which you award the Liebster. Blogs must have less than 200 followers.

2- Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

3-Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you gave the award to with links to their sites

Here are my nominees for the Liebster Blog Award:
1. Uma from Creative Mau. Uma dabbles in a lot of crafts including crochet and I just love her lamasa work.

2. Lisa from My world of crochet who has a crochet blog in German. I like Lisa's crochet work which is very neat and her posts about life in general.

3. Mousumi from Love for Krafts. Mousumi is a true crafter and has varied interests like candle making, claywork and crochet.

4. Rajeshwari of Diaper Mum. Rajeshwari has a lovely choice of colour plus I like the little glimpses she gives us into her life.

5. Monali from Delta-Zelta. Monali makes the cutest amigurumi.

Congratulations to all!

And thank you Mira, once again for the honour. Mira is a versatile crafter and one could be lost in her blog for hours. I especially like her kolam designs and Twilight hours.

Well, off I go to bask in the glory of the award. Have a nice day. See you soon.
Love :)
