Granny square delight !!

Image
I've finally completed my granny square blanket. I have been planning on making this since I started crocheting and have managed to do it after 4 long years. Unsure that I would follow through, I was always reluctant to start this project; but somehow mustered courage and took the leap. 
I started this blanket in August and have been working on it off and on. Overall it took me around 4 months to complete this project. 
This is my first ever(might as well be the last) multi colored granny square blanket. I can easily say the hardest part was choosing colors at random for each row. It is a lot easier if the colors are finalized in the beginning.

My sister had gifted me a Michael's gift card for my birthday last year and most of the yarn for this project came from that. So a big thank you to her!! :-)


Before starting each row I would finalize all the colors for that row. and put them in the stitch holder in the…

My first quilt !!

I have been missing from the blogland for quite sometime. I took a few weeks off and visited my sister and my cute little niece. I hadn't seen her since she was born. So this was a long awaited trip. I had seen her on skype everyday since the day she was born, but the feeling when I held her for the first time in my arms was just un-explainable. It was the awesome-est feeling on earth. She looked quite big on skype but in real she was actually quite tiny. she was like this cuddly bundle of joy which I never felt like putting down. :-) 
I was visiting her for the first time, and how could I go empty handed. I had made a lot of crocheted stuff for her. So this time I decided to do something different. And my first quilt was born. :-)  Yes I tried my hands at quilting. It'd been more than a year since I bought my sewing machine, and I had used it only for the cushion cover I made and some alternation work. I had been putting off quilting for quite a while now as I didn't hav…

Baby Goodies - Part 2

Image
Hey there! I'm back with my second post on the various baby goodies I made for my cute little niece.
This is a ripple blanket which I made for her stroller. I felt the bright carrot orange shade will be perfect for a baby's blanket.  :-)





This was not planned initially, but when I found this amazing toy on Pinterest, I couldn't resist making it. It's so colourful and soft.




I feel it might be a bit big for my niece right now. But I'm sure she'll enjoy playing it with it soon. :-)


Because I found it very big for her , I made another ball which is perfect for her to play with now :-) Yes another amish puzzle ball. They are so cute. Assembling them is the best part.









This cannot be disassembled like the flower amish puzzle ball. I have sewn it completely. I feel the grooves between the wedges is perfect for a baby to hold while playing.


How could I not make a flower headband when I was having a niece. Baby girls looks so cute with headbands :-)
