Karthikai Deepam.

Karthikai Deepam festival is celebrated at SouthIndia in a grand manner. Deepavali is said to be the Deepa+avali,.
But actually Karthikai deepam day is celebarated with litting of lights full of houses and temples. Temples will looks so divine by litting of hundres and thousands of lights.
I like terracota very much. In my house my corridar is decorated with various terracotta items like, elephants, elephantlike plant holders, horses, various types of pots like. I like the original colour terracota lamps too.
While learning painting, i had done varities of painting with pots and sometimes terracotta lamps also. But all are to give as presents. In my house i use the original terracotta red colour items.
Here i display the karthikai deepa lights eliminated in the cornor of my corridar.

Pen holder (Plastic canvas.)

This is named after pen holder. But it is a multipurpose holder. It is done by plastic canvas.

This is very easy to do. Kids can be taught todo this during their vaccations.
They can do it easily. It is been made up of plastic canvas, Thapsory(without sharp led) needle is used to do the design. So kids cannot wound their hands.
Being plastic canvas the holes are large and they can do it very easily.
For preparing this i had taken 2 nos of hexagonal type plastic canvas and done this simple design by wool.


Then i had taken 5 nos of square plastic canvas and done like this simple design for 4 nos.
I joined the 5 nos of square pieces at the 5 sides of hezagane shape by placing the squares centre and hexaganes at two sides. Now i got a box like portion.
Then i cut out two big square plastic sheet to keep the prepared box as stand.
I kept the designless plain square(small) as bottom and fixed the box on the big square.
Now taken the same size square sheet and attached four sides by thin sheets and made like stand.

Now the multipurpose holder made up of plastic canvas is ready.
Here i use the plastic canvas holder as remote holders.

Danish knot

I completed my saree pallu design with Danish knot. I find it very easy to do the stitch.
Here i show how i did the Danish knot.
First bring the needle at A and go down to B.

Come out at C.

Bring the needle down under stitch(A B)without piercing the fabric.

Keep the thread to the left.

Go back under the stitchwith the thread under the needle.

Go in at D to secure the stitch.
Bring back the needle at B and continue the stitch.

Like this.

The completed stitch row looks like this and this is how I completed the zig zag row in the border at the saree pallu design.
This Danish  stitch can be used for small flowers and buds also.
