I am not much into festivals. Usually when festival season starts rolling (this is pretty much the entire year in India, depending on how seriously one takes up the lunar calendar), I try out of some guilt, do a bare minimum to give N some sense of what’s going on. Thankfully, her school is very much into such things and everything is celebrated with great gusto.
Valentine’s Day actually I like (although does one call it a festival or a celebration?) Not the flowers so much, but perhaps baking a cake and making some hand made things that N can give or that we can make together. This year, I am afraid I have been a bit lazy on this front…but I started this a while ago, and I think it’ll be good to finish it by tomorrow or so.
It’s quite sweet I think; the idea comes from here. And I think a cushion cover might just be nice and a good way to get back into sewing, which I have abandoned for a while now.
And here is a little creation of N.
Not Valentine day-ish particularly unless you can “see” the hearts in those folds. But she has been labouring over it for the past two days, and asked me earlier if I would stick a picture of it on the blog.
So. Hello. It has been a while hasn’t it? I feel like I have woken up from deep slumber, and am just about getting ready to take up some sewing and such. Much to tell, and lots to share, so I hope you visit again soon.
P.S. Thank you for the most fantastic and encouraging comments on the secret squirrel outfit. I enjoyed every bit of all the comments, and can’t wait to see the next one 🙂
