My First try on making a QUILT

This is one of the projects that I made 2 yrs back when I was back was the first time I tried to make a quilt.

I had bought some material with which I actually thought to make pillow covers but I kept thinking and thinking and finally I ended up stitching this... :)

Actually it is made with fiber filling. Felt so excited when it was done...but never attempted to make another one since then..

My Basic Stitches

Stitching...specially is something that I love to do..but have not been doing for quite sometime now... :(

As I was sitting and browsing the net one day I got a sudden urge to search out the differnt blogs and see if there was anyone who shared the same interest as mine... and to my suprise...there were SO MANY... I went through most of them. :) and it was a joy to read.

It inspired me a lot..but the most that interested me was the site it attracted me like a magent. There were so many stitches that were listed that I had not heard of :( but, the most happiest was that i could learn from the viedo tutorial that was there.

I had learnt embroidery but i never imagined that there were so many ways and SO MANY stitches.. That is when i realised i had not taken the interest to venture out and search.. i had beenstitching only what i had learnt over and over again.

So the next day I went and got me a yard of cloth and have been trying to make a sample piece of all the stitches i know and i am still learning..

I have just started out by learning.... now waiting eagerly to go back home may be in the next 2-3 months :( and start my projects and surely to post all that I have created though the designs were copied :) ....



Time to do some more crochet.  AH!! 😵I love to spend time cuddled on the couch under my blanket with some wool and a crochet needle. ...
