May crafting report

Hello friends,

Thank you for your lovely comments on my last post, I'm glad you liked the "Mini me" as much as I do.

In case anyone noticed, I have been away from blog land for a month now. Nothing to worry, just a short break from the daily routine. Yesterday I came back from an amazing trip to Himalayas and I'm charged up to spend few more months in this hustle bustle before I take another break.

I have been crafting, however not much to have separate posts for GG and Theme-tas-stitch SALs . This post is my check in for both SALs.

Gifted Gorgeousness SAL is hosted by Jo. For this SAL, we show what hand crafted gifts we made or receive every month.

I received a wonderful package from Shami in Dec 2016.However their was a bit mismatch in timing , so the package was at my parent's place since then. I collected the package last week during my visit to India .

Shami sent me two cross stitched items,Anchor metallic and variegated threads, fridge magnet and postcards. I love the goodies , specially the flower cross stitch. Thank you Shami!

I started a new gift for a friend's baby due in July- a knitted baby blanket. I'm having difficulty in concentrating on cross stitch and have had regular frog visits. So I decided to start a project which requires less counting.
Here is my progress so far:26 rows knitted . The yarn is Indian Ice Batik .I would like to shoe horn this as my entry for Monochrome May -Theme-tas-stitch 2017 hosted by Kerry. Well this is all I made in May with single skein of yarn ☺
My next post will be about a swap I participated in with a fellow blogger.Stay tuned.


  1. Nice to see you back, Mini. I hope you were enjoying your stay in India. And you could collect a package full of gifts from your friend.
    Great start of the baby blanket, it has such nice colours.

  2. Good to have you back !! Love the gifts from Shami. It was a long wait since Dec.
    Your baby blanket is so cute, love the colors :)

  3. The baby blanket is looking so promising! What great choice of colours :)

  4. Hope you had a nice break in India, Mini!

  5. Nice that you got away and were able to finally get that lovely package of goodies.

  6. Welcome back! Thanks for taking part in GG this month too. Lovely exchange parcel. I have some of that Anchor metallic and it's really nice to stitch with. Much better than DMC! Doesn't shred when you are stitching with it.
    The baby blanket has such pretty colours in it too.

  7. Great shoehorn! I included vari thread projects too. Lovely colours in the blanket and what a lovely gift.

  8. Such a lovely gift from Shami! And your baby blanket is turning out so sweet! I love the yarn you are using! I missed hearing from you and glad that you are back :)
