I saw a lovely tutorial at 30 handmade days and fell in love instantly. She shows how to make cute heart coasters with a step by step tutorial. I made one just to try out the tutorial and it turned out pretty. Maybe a little too early for Valentine’s but then…

A lazy Sunday afternoon when the family ident need you much is the best time to sit down and do some toddler activity for yourself with strips of coloured fabric and glue with simple band aids!!
Before evening a full set of lovely coloured band aids are ready!
Hoping the kid never has to use them…I display them in a jar

Unputdownable and gripping ! Just two words to describe the book which has been on the bestseller list.
I moved from the sofa to the chair to the bed…through breakfast, lunch and dinner, I just read it through to the end. An amazing story line with the right degree of suspense and horror(if I may say so!). I don’t like horror stories as such but I like Dean Koontz and sci-fi, the way he writes them and this book is Koontz all the way; the way he describes Jim Ironheart’s blue eyes to the way he explains the failed career of Holly Thorne, just raring to take on an adventure! This is one of the finest stories in his repertoire.
For the love of a ten-year old for his parents and grandparents, his guilt, his denial and ultimate catharsis, this book is definitely worth a read.

Discovered a new shop ‘Dhaga ghar’ near the local train station at Lowel Parel-Mumbai and bought some lovely thread along with fusible interfacing for pouches/bags I intend to sew as gifts.
Some of the swaps I have received had this lovely thread used for quilting and I had always wondered where people got it from. Now I have added them to my stash.
Just love the neons.

A nice library tote came together this morning . A lovely, easy, on the go tote to carry a book or two with a notepad.
What’s more, it’s really easy to make and takes a little less than an hour to make. I like the strawberry fabric of the bag and it beautifuly complements the flowers in the bag strap. It’s roughly 12″X14″ and long straps ensure it hangs by your side as you go shopping for more fabric :)
I am giving away this tote for the Sew mama Sew – handmade items giveaway at their site.
The giveaway if open to international participants.
You can participate by leaving me a comment on this post, telling me places that you carry your tote to…library, fabric shopping or some other place :) For an additional entry, you can follow my blog.
Connie Cain wins this giveaway! Congratulation Connie, have mailed you.
