A little bit of crochet......

Dear all,
Hope you all are doing fine . Thanks for your wishes , I am doing fine as well .  I don’t have any finished piece to show even today but I am determined to write a post . Also , I want to avoid showing up again on ‘Just Wednesday’ post only ;)

I want to keep my WIPs secret but that is taking unimaginably long duration to complete . Today, I will share some of the motifs made for embellishing my WIPs . They aren’t blocked and some (ok , many ;)) threads are left un-weaved-in on purpose .
Raj is in San Francisco for this week .  He promised that he will not get me anything from there and vowed that he will never step into craft shops . But , I am sure he will do for the fear of seeing a ‘NoEntry’ board back home :) just kidding :)  Last time when he got lots of things from 'Hobbycraft' store in London, he got many which were available in India. So this time he will strictly comply with the list.  He is in Redwood City and will be visiting a family friend in San Jose . If anyone is aware about good craft shops in these two places , let me know . I will try to google as well .

These are few items I crocheted ...

Crochet Nosegay square

Crochet square
Free pattern from Ravelry here....this square has got a big name, find it out for yourself :)

Actually, mine turned out to be a trapezium which I would have corrected easily but I wanted that shape only to be used as a pocket :)

crochet flower and crochet butterfly

Butterfly : free pattern here
crochet flowers
 Some more tiny flowers and leaves. The tinier ones are 1 cm and crocheted with size 20 thread
crochet motifs
Some more timepass crochet

All these motifs go into these boxes I bought few months back . My bed is always cluttered during the day with my projects . I keep all my projects in separate zip folders and have bought so many of these. Lets have a sneak peek inside this folder......one of my WIPs......... :)))

Does it look gorgeous ? I have not used any flash , the yarn type is shiny and silky

Some more stash that arrived today.......actually, I ran out of orange knitting cotton .......don't know how come I received these many ;) he....he....

Thanks for seeing !! Please do write in , it makes me happy even if my itty bitty motifs are not big projects .

Any guesses for that 'sneak peek' project ?

Have a nice day !!
Preeti :)


  1. Love all the sneak peak projects and great new stash Preeti. Your making a blanket with flowers on top. Your making a wreath.


  2. You motifs look superb!
    What are those hanks of cotton yarn if I may ask? They look very special?

    1. The ones in balls are cotton. The ones in hanks are silky satin like thick yarn of local brand. They can be used for making decor rug, baskets or any wall hanging etc. not good for wearables, or cushions etc. as it is thick. I am using 5mm hook because I am crocheting a bit tightly.

  3. Your motifs are all gorgeous! I am anxious to see what they are going to adorn. :D

  4. Wow they all so beautiful..
    Hugs x

  21. Preeti, all your crocheted squares and flowers and butterflies are so beautiful! My guess is that you will put them on curtains covering your windows! I hope your husband brings you back lots of goodies that you can't find in India! I'm sorry I don't live close to that area so I have no suggestions. I am 6 hours south of that area.

  22. The Wips are all so inspiring and beautiful! I specially love that flower coaster thing you crocheted seeing one on etsy


Thank you for visiting my blog. I love to hear your feedback about my work!
