Girlie Gang is Fun

I made this for my cubicle mate and good friend. We 4 girls share this entire cubicle and it is a girls only cubicle :-). So she named it as Girlie Gang.

It became more like college girls chatting and giggling over all things. We bunked work went out for a day to a near by mall. And many more times went out for lunch. And sometimes extended lunch too 🙂

Made this for her B’day. After seeing, Attic24 christmas Card, I was thinking on similar lines and then decided to make like this. In my initial plan, the flowers had stems & leaves too and the Words were the first I decided.
But with the words, I found it difficult to place the stems & leaves so they were removed.

Embroidery on the crochet is really tough in this case, , though it was simple backstich, my crochet has so many holes and I starched the piece before embroidery. So could not insert the needle at ease and sometimes pulling out stronger made the stitches pucker. Somehow I managed.

I have stash, but sometimes it is just Junk. When I want something, I don’t have it. Though I had some fancy buttons(with stone & enamel), I did not have anything flowery.
Later my other cubicle mate got the flower shaped buttons. And Finally finished it over the weekend.

Hi All,

Happy New Year & Happy Pongal to All.

I got a handmade gift from my sister in Australia. I asked for it and got it for my New Year.
During her early days, she has reproduced Tanjore Paintings( Calendar Painting showing Kings & warriors) in Indian Ink and it was a prized posession of ours. She also did a drawing and painting course and the book which was given to her as Study Material went on tour in our family.

She used to draw freehand designs and even decorated our Fridge door with a floral design.
In Between she lost touch and now she is picking her brush again.
I wish her All success in her Crafty Endeavors.

It is a set of 4 canvas with the floral creeper starting in the below and growing upwards. She drew her own design, outlined with sketch and filled it with water colors.
