Rainy Days

The rain gods have finally relented and decided to shower their blessings on us. Yes, it has been raining for the past couple of days. The trees are looking greener, the heady scent of wet earth is wafting through the air and even the air is feeling cleaner. The fact that we did not have power for the better part of the day yesterday, may be a side effect. But given the blessed relief from the unbearable heat, the rains are always welcome.

My post for yesterday was to be WIPs Wednesday, a round up of all incomplete projects in my WIP basket. But no power = no post :( It may not have made good reading but it was more for updating myself. Maybe some other time.

Since I was forced to stay indoors due to the wet weather, I decided to try my hand at a thread pattern. Ever since I started working with yarn, I find it difficult to work with thread. But I wanted to have a crack at this beautiful heart bookmark.

So here it is:

Now isn't that a beautiful heart?

The shaded thread gives it a lovely look.

Here it is duly tasseled, ready to be sent. Where? To my friend Vrushali, who is also my physiotherapist. She is the first good friend I made after shifting to Ahmedabad. She is excellent as a therapist and as a person too. She is never seen without a book in hand, so I was sure she would like a bookmark.

Vrushali is so thrilled with the bookmark that she has now decided to learn to crochet. She is hoping to have a small gift ready for her sister who is going to deliver next month. I hope so too.

 Do you like this bookmark? I hope to make a few more soon in many different colours.

Bye for now.

Free crochet pattern widget

So friends, did you  have a wonderful Sunday?

We had a takeaway lunch (no cooking...yay), my son went for a movie with his friends and I did loads of internet surfing. It was a lovely, lazy Sunday.

Look what I found on one of the crochet blogs! A widget which shows you the Free ( crochet pattern of the Day at Free And if you scroll down you can see all the free patterns of the month. Isn't that nice?

Free and are sites that I like and I visit often, so when I saw this widget I just grabbed it. Since the patterns are free I am hoping the widget is free too. I am still new to all the blogging stuff out there, and everyday I learn something new. If you see the blog design changing ever so often don't worry, it is just me experimenting with something I discovered.

Let me know if you found this gadget to be useful.

A warm welcome to our new friend Charlotte from Charlotte's Web.

Bye for now,
