Crochet is one art which I love but don't have much practise. I used to create at one time-though not much complicated designs. I preferred working with wool as it was less strenuous and easy to complete. But working with cotton yarn is not my forte.
I have bought some yarn now with the intention of taking up it once again and mastering it at least to some extent. I should show my stash-for a person who doesn't have time to pursue all these, I have so much enthusiasm :).
Just recovering from my illness and still not very strong but one thing that motivates me is shopping for craft supplies. Yesterday my sis wanted something and I pitched in with her to go shopping. Though I was not able to walk around much, I picked up some very beautiful things.
Anyway one of them was this lace. Though I can make my own I somehow can't resist buying. After all the ladies who create this come from very poor back grounds. With the advent of machine made laces hand made ones have been badly hit in India. So I just buy as much my budget allows.
I also bought a smaller one. But by the time I was choosing this I was so rest less and in pain that I ended up buying the same design. Well its OK- it would be matching ones.
Here is the smaller one.
My sis bought many laces and some zardosi work. I could not photograph them as she was in a hurry. Let me see I will try to post those too.
