Crafty Flings

Hi All,

Post the blogging week, it is quite normal & I’m able to write my posts without much difficulty.

Will definitely want to think about this nature and blog πŸ™‚ about it.

So here is my new crafty fling…

During a recent shopping visit, I ventured into Staples & bought a quilling mat & strips. Quilling tool, I already had πŸ™‚

So this is what came out after an hour of indulgence.

The below mini cards are created for sticking on the birthday gift for 2 kiddos.


They are super easy, very creative.But more complex designs needs more perfection & neatness. But for a quick gift & crafting, they are great.



4KCBWDAY5 – Day 5 Only a Bit of Felix Felicis

Hi All,

Again I got stopped becoz Day 5 of the blogging week is about blogging differently.

4KCBWDAY5 “Something A Bit Different” It’s the annual challenge to blog in a way different to how you normally blog. You may choose to create a podcast, or vlog, create a wordless post or write in verse. You’ve already stretched your wings with an infographic, now it’s time to freestyle. You can post on any topic you like, but be sure to post in a style different from your usual blog presentation.

Well, A bit different seems to be the toughest things to blog.
This blog mainly showcases the crochet, occasional sewing and almost non existent embroidery projects, I cannot include any of these 3 in my different post.

Infact, I thought not-posting will be a difference, ha ha it will be considered usual here.

I thought of many different topics which I’m kind of comfortable with like books, sharing the books I read in the past. Favorite author etc etc.
But it is not as different as a reader would expect.

I ran short of ideas, I ran short of time long back, so no hurry on that anyways πŸ™‚

So finally I decided to blog about a recent well planned one day outing with which we ran out of luck but still we managed.
We here refers to Yours truly & another very friendly friend. Here I’m saying very friendly bcoz I dragged her here & there and almost unknown (Unknown for her, Almost unknown for me :-D) streets of bangalore and still she never complained.

So the story begins here, My friend was in need of particular item which she bought & then ran short of. Her original source said It is out of stock & no timeline given on when they can get it back, if at all they can get back.
So I suggested for a trip to commercial street to get the hmmm..item.

Ideally we would have preferred a weekend for everybody’s comfort,but she was going out of town. And you can understand, when women set their mind on shopping, they cannot postpone it very far. So we decided on weekday which is Workday;Time 3:00 PM. Not bad, few hours of work time which we can compensate later was our contemplation.

But things were decided to happen differently ( Wow, so there was first difference!!)
Our work, not only kept us occupied till 5:00 which is our usual office last hour, it also gave a push & settled nicely that we were stuck to our places till 6:00.

Hard hearted we were, I quickly rushed to cafeteria & got some parcels for we decided we are Going Definitely !! and obviously will feel hungry.
Then the moment we stepped out, it started Raining!!..
That was Bangalore’s first rain of the season ( come on it is Summer, it can never rain now & why it should be today?? )

Again, Definitely is a word we both uttered at the same time, we jumped into an Auto & asked him to take us to Commercial street.

I generally respect everyone, but with Auto Drivers I’m more worried about my respect. For what words will come out of their mouth, might leave us sleepless for days. So it is my friend who bargained against the Rain & Rate & we started our well planned!! journey.

It rained, traffic, our bags were getting wet and it rained more.
Our Quick snack which we mindfully bought was still hot, so it was Hot hot samosas with ketchup and some wedding sweets given by a colleague raised our spirits.

Afterall, we are safe in Auto, we have made a deal with him so no swear words there. It is raining outside, we are decently comfortable inside & having samosas. After all Life is Beautiful, Samosas are Tasty.

So after more rain, more traffic & few more samosas, we reached Commercial street.
As fast as we got down, I dragged my friend to side roads & then to side lanes & then to the cross streets, it was quite dark & I was going with a vague memory ,recollecting the right roads.

Finally we reached where we wanted to reach. We took out what we wanted to ask & buy. Alas, it was not there, what we assumed to be so commonly available became a rarity here! So unfortunate for us.

We did try few more shops, binged on other things to compensate our depression & came back home late at very dark hour.

So where is the bit of Felix Felicis..

Here is one of my purchase turned into a handle for this bag.

And a bracelet for my friend I made from the purchase of beads in commercial street.

Now for curious heads, what was the item?? It was none other than ………….

Yarn.. Not very uncommon, simple Vardhaman Millennium in honey red color.
Alas, we did not get it.
Did we buy any contrast color? No. My friend decided to Rip & start.

Rip ??? 1/2 of the skirt.. Well that is another story.

Atlast, kindly ignore if you don’t find it Different, This Different thing is really difficult actually.

So Right now,
