Weekend Stash, Fabrics and Yarns!

Hello dear friends!!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend . Thank you all for visiting my blog and writing those encouraging words which helps me a lot to look forward in the world of needlecraft without looking back at the career I left behind !  I must say I have found great admirers and sharers in all of you ! :) And there are lots of ideas in every blog to learn from.

I did some unusual shopping this weekend . I always yearn for making quilts and beautiful patchwork that I see on many eye-catchy blogs . But making quilts is a farfetched dream for me . Another reason is that, here in Hyderabad, the winters are mild so we do not use quilts. But I can make other things ! I had earlier made a bed sheet with patchwork some 10 years back, but after that I had been just warming my eyes on various needlework magazines and blogs :)

So, this time I decided to buy some cotton fabric pieces . Please suggest me a beginner’s tutorial for patchwork . For now, I have to manage with available tools that I own – needle, thread, fabric and scissors:) I do not have self-healing mat or a cutter .

Also, last weekend I fetched my Anchor knitting cotton order from shop . We do not get that in any of craft shops here . So I am supposed to order, that too, full boxes! :( Few more light colours are pending. Enough for me to survive for more than a year! :)

I am glad to share with you all . Keep writing and have a Happy week ahead!

Preeti :)


  1. Lovely colors. Why don't you order from Pradhan Embroidery Stores? They deliver all over India and how many ever balls you need. Check out their Facebook page, add them as a friend and you can view their albums.

    Great fabrics, i too collect them, but i dont have a sewing machine and hence just keep looking at them :)

  4. Hello Preeti! Saw your blog address on your Rav profile where you recently joined our South Asian Crafters group. Saw that you were in Hyderabad and couldn't resist :) I'm a non-resident Hyderabadi, currently in Kerala. Do introduce yourself in the group over there. Where did you buy the fabric, by the way?

  5. Hi Preeti, Which shop did you order it from ?? Is it not possible to order different colours ??? Can you please share info about the shop. It would be of great help. Thanks!!
