But I can sew .........

What if my finger doesn't allow me to stitch and crochet, I can sew . At the first place, I got hurt with sewing machine and the irony is that I can, in this situation, work with sewing machine only . The hurt is not that bad but at the wrong place ----tip of index finger of my right hand . While sewing, I heard a sound and thought that the needle has broken. To check that, I touched the needle tip carefully with my finger but accidently pressed the foot pedal and the needle poked my finger. It pains when I hold a pen or any needle . So I am sewing these days.

I made this printer cover . A long pending task which I avoided because the box type cover was a bit intimidating for me .

This medium weight fabric was in my stash for the past 8 years with which I had planned to make a skirt for Anshita.

What else, I was able to put floss on more bobbins and I filled both the boxes.


Then, I completed sewing the cushion covers on which I am going to attach (hand sew) the crocheted pieces. I made 5 covers sized 16"x 16" and 2 covers measuring 24"x24"

The left ones are the smaller ones. The printed side will be on the back and the crochet piece will be attached on the white front.

I am in the process of arranging my craft room, will share the pics. Right now, the soft boards are being used for miscellaneous household bills. Above few pics are from my craft room.
Have a crafty week ahead!
Preeti :)

  12. Oh darling! The same thing happened to me when I was at school-went to change a broken needle, caught the machine foot and ended up stabbing myself in the nail bed of my middle finger! Very painful. I hope you heal up quickly xx

  13. Sorry about your finger, must be painful - I think most of us who sew have experienced this sort of `easy´ accident before. Your printer cover looks lovely and the cushion fabric too.

  14. Well at least you can sew and create some lovely projects. The printer cover is great.
    Heal quick!

  15. Aw, that must be painfull! I hope you recover quickly.

  17. The printer cover turned out great!I do all my stitching in my study room, overlooking my mother's garden.More than once, I'd seen peacocks walking past, snakes gliding hurriedly, butterflies, birds and all sorts of animals.

  18. I'm so glad your hurt finger is allowing you to still create such pretty things, Preeti--hope it heals quickly :)

    Here's the reply to your comment dear..Hi dear..sorry for the late reply. .thanks for liking the layout preeti..the above layout is part of my daughters baby book. .I have made a display area/borad in our drawing room for displaying our other crafts thst I do with my little one and also the canvases and quilling. .the baby book is shown to occasional guests..
    You are very correct about paper craft and needle craft..paper craft takes much less time as compared to needle craft with endless possibilities depending on the time at hand and mood. .ha ha..I had done some needle craft like crochet. .cross stitch. .satin stitch when I was in school. .it takes a lot of patience. .still planning to do some crochet but yet to get the trigger for it...hats of to you for your amazing creations dear..and the dedication and patience that goes with it. .:)
