Welcome 2018 ! :)

Happy new year to all of you ! :) Hope you had a fun and relaxing new year eve .

I have been running behind some plans for new year mainly setting up goals which I have been doing for the past three years . Earlier I had given up on goals but setting them up gives me a hope that there is much to look forward to in life and learn new things . So I forget the past failures and set up goals , some of them quite elaborate , and prepare myself , yet again , to fail ! ...he he. If I complete even 1% of the list , believe me it is usually a big list, I am happy :)


Here is what I revived from last year into the new year . I recycled Anshita's old water bottle into a vase with crochet cover and decorative accents . I gave the task of taking pics to Anshita and Raj . A flower and leaves were hurriedly snapped from the plants in the balcony and arranged in a manner which they termed eclectic . After that , their main object of interest was the flower and depth effect pictures , not the vase at all .

Before

After

I used left over Lily sugar n cream cotton yarn and some anchor knitting cotton . The sleeve of the vase and accents can be taken out and cleaned whenever needed .

Looking forward to your creations this year.

Have a creative and happy 2018!
Preeti :)

    Happy new year to you. Even I have a big list, in fact I will have every year. As you said, if I finish 1% of that, that is enough for me :)

  22. I love what you've done to the old water bottle! I often keep useful things but somehow never seem to get around to making them look nicer. And yours got double the love with a family photography session haha.

    Making plans is dangerous so I must fly by the seat of my pants every year. \:D/ Happy New Year to you guys!
