A cross stitch finish !!! :))

Yay!! I have a cross stitch finish to share with you all :) Well, the 'yay' is just to add a bit of enthusiasm in displaying, as such, this should have been completed long back .

Cross stitch teacups

This one was a part of my Turtle Trot SAL projects . It is stitched on 14 count white aida fabric and the stitched portion measures 12’’ x 8’’ . I still need to wash and frame it . The original design had a caption too which I decided to drop. I just had a chart in DMC codes which I converted to nearest matching Anchor shades . The design is supposed to be stitched on a black aida fabric but I did it on a white one .

We had a nice Diwali and this time Anshita made a huge Rangoli on her own . I just helped her fill the colors . It is not easy because the substance is a powdery like fine granular and should be used pinch by pinch to fil l. What's important is that she patiently sat for almost two hours and completed . She will turn 11 in December.

At night, when the lamp is lit

Although, the Diwali story relates to Lord Rama, but on this day we worship Goddess Laxmi who represents wealth . As a symbol for welcoming Goddess, a Rangoli is drawn outside the doorstep.
