Huck embroidary simple border

 I had given a trial at this Huck towel and made like simple border.

If we embroidary in the huge towel, design is being visible at the front portion of the cloth.
At the backside only begining knot and ending knot can be visible. Like this.

Needle can be inserted at the cloth in the embossing thread lines.
we can either do stright or upward or downward designs by inserting the needle in the towel.

I feel like putting kolam out of the dotted where in  we first put dots and then create. Like wise here also we can create design out of imagination.
Let me try some more designs like this.

Plastic canvas--Coin holder.

This is the Coi hcontainer, made by plastic canvas.
This is a very easy craft. kids can do it for their holiday craft.
I just tell how to make this.

The material needed for this:- 6 star shaped plastic canvas, colour wool, tapsery needle to do design in the star shaped plastic canvas and of course sissers.
Do any design and complete the star. Then attach stars like this. The yellow colour shows how to attach the stars.
Like wise attach 5 stars.The 5th star can be attached with first star.
So automattically bottom portion is ready. now attach one star with the 5 attached stars.Yellow wool shows the attachments.

    this is the bottom portion.

I think it is not necessery to do design in the bottom side.So I left blank without design.Now the coin holder is ready.

Change of season

The season is changing.
The weather is pleasent.
The Sun starts to spread his hands warmly like a mother hold her child.
Varities of birds started chipping.
Very sweet voices.
Varities of sparrows. Robins squrills came out from their hibernets.
It is very pleasent walking. Cool breeze, warm sun,birds chipping.
I am happy the huchiiy huchiiy rakkamma trees starts bloom with its leaves.
I wounder in some trees, there are no leaves at all. All white bunch flowers.All pink bunch flowers. Very pretty to watch with.
Little yellow daffadils(I asume so) started show its head in between green grass.
Green grass spread its path around houses.
Yesterday my daughter phoned up from Chennai and told about the hot summer there.
So this sweet weather would make my Chennai friends happy i suppose.

Especially some voilet colour flowers sorrounded this neighbourhood.
I fallen love with those flowers and used some for decoration during friends visit over here.

But before that i think i leave Kansas. So in remember of the voilet flowers, i had done this embroidary.
This is also very simple.
Here i used wheat ear stitch, stemstitch to leaves and fern stitch to the vains of leaves.
I had done baloon stitch for flowers in double colour and centre orange is net knot

these were the voilet flowers.
