A little bit of Crochet and something new!!!

Hi Firends,
      It feels so good to be back here and writing a new post.
Its been three months in Toronto now and really feels like yesterday that I was unpacking our bags. Time is just fleeting... I've been quite busy with a school going husband(yes you read it right ;-) ) and trying to learn new things. I've recently joined many groups on FB where extremely talented people have been posting their work. I had been wanting to try my hand at tatting, but lack of time in Bangalore never allowed me to experiment. But I guess this was the right time for tatting and little bit of macrame too :-)

A few motifs and bracelets I tatted :-) You can find their tutorials on youtube. As a beginner I found the instructions very easy to follow.



I made this black bracelet for a cute little girl in the neighbourhood on her birthday :-)




I added some charms to make it more girlie :-) Isn't it cute ? And it even matched the birthday girl's dress :-)




Another in progress :-)  Which of these do you like the most ?




Now coming to the macrame bracelet I made a few days back. Its the simplest one in macrame I guess. I followed a tutorial I found on youtube.


The two strands can be pulled to adjust the size of the bracelet. Black thread and wooden beads make a perfect combination for me :-)

Diwali in Toronto was not a regular evening as we had been to a Diwali party. It was fun get together.
I made this as a part of Diwali CAL(Crochet Along) on a FB group.


A better look at the lotus diya holder :-)
The pattern to this is available HERE.


Hope you had a safe and fun filled Diwali too! :-)
Waiting for comments and suggestions from all my readers.
Till I post again!
Love,
Ranjitha

  1. Hi, Ranjitha!
    Happy Dwiali! :)
    Your tatting is absolutely amazing! I loved all the bracelets, and you really do it so neatly! I tried tatting some time ago, but it didn't come to me... may be I shall try more :) Your diya is wonderful! Actually it can be used for Christmas and New Year decor too. Have a lovely weekend! Hugs, Anna.

    1. Thank you very much Anna, Try needle tatting the next time. It is a lot easier than the shuttle tatting(atleast for me) I'm planning to make another in Christmas colours :-)

  5. Had been long. Good to see you settling down at the new place and finding inspiration to learn tatting. All of them look cute and dainty. I liked the maroon one the most. And yes. I loved the tealight holder too.

    Have a wonderful week
