More Embroidery

We have been experiencing a heat wave and even though brief rain and thunder brought some respite, the temperatures are rising again. All this heat has slowed me down considerably, all I want to do is drink plenty of fluids and rest. This lethargy meant it took me nearly a month to complete this embroidery project. I have used buttonhole st in single color to embroider this lawn kameez (shirt) of mine.
Love the fabric and the sewing part went well too, so this kameez will get a lot of happy wear.

Crocheted Brooches

My SIL (sister-in-Law) recently asked me to make a couple of brooches for her, to accessorize her stoles. She mentioned the specific colors and kind of designs she wanted. Here are what I came up with:

Just to let you now I am still here. Life got kind of hectic lately and to feel less like a candle burning at both ends, I decided to ease up on my craft hobbies. Haven't touched my yarn in quite some time and my latest embroidery project is also in time-out. I did sew a couple of dresses for my older daughter, I will try to post some pictures soon. Other than that, I have run out of craft-related blog content. Hopefully, that will change sooner than later, thank you for hanging around.
