Few updates and gifts.....:)

Hello all,

Thank you so much for your wishes on my last post . I could not reply to any single comment . Soon after that, I was busy with the preparation of House warming pooja for our new flat . It was on 1st May. It is an elaborate prayer as per Hindu mythology. Raj and I together did that (under the supervision of 5 priests) for almost 3 hrs which included 20 min of Havan (small bonfire) in peak afternoon time when the temperatures were running 42-45 C . It was done in the drawing room so not that hot. But still, fans and ACs were switched off during the entire time as they would blow off the lamps . So you can understand why I am not posting my 'uff, it is so hot !' photos . We had invited some local friends and relatives for the lunch. We were happy as all went well nicely.

Some updates on my crafting....

I worked on the Margaret Sherry SAL. This was the only Cross stitching I did for last 1 month.

Making a crochet purse for my mother :) She was with me for 5 months and left 2 weeks before the house warming ceremony. I missed her. I could not complete this purse . Will send her whenever I am done with. It is an interlocking crochet stitch .

Anshita made this bunting for the new house using foam sheets :) We had put it on the main door during the pooja . I like it!! It looks cute !!

And here are some gifts....

A Margaret Sherry Calendar sent by my cross stitching friend Jo from Serendipitous Stitching .
It is a Calendar  with 6 big Msherry Cross stitch charts . Thank you so much Jo !! That's so sweet of you for sending me :) I have only digital charts so this is surely a treasure for me . She also sent me two lovely postcards with her beautiful handwriting but they are now packed with my greeting cards . I will show them when I unpack after shifting to the new flat .

A new phone 'SONY Xperia Z1 Compact (White) ' from Raj :) No special occasion, just that my old phone stopped working so he got me a new one . I am not used to this size of phone .

With my old phone (Nokia xpressmusic) of seven years

I am in the process of ordering things for my giveaway. We are planning to shift in the end of May. But I haven't started anything....still many fittings are to be done . I am getting it done one at a time but I guess its slow. Raj changed his job in Feb after being 13 years in the same company. So he has become very busy and the ownership of all his pending tasks at the new flat have been transeferred to me :(

This weekend I purchased some craft stuff for both Anshita and myself. I have some more to show, but no time for pics.

Have a lovely week and weekend!
