While still seeing snowy and icy pictures in some of your blogs, dear friends, I can announce that the sunny Indian days are back to our city with loads of sunshine, blue sky, +20 C and little happy moments.
I think I haven't been sharing yet any Indian animals' pictures, so here is one - an emerald green parrot who was sitting on our neighbors' tree. Can you spot the parrot among the green leaves? It was, of course, much more beautiful in real.
Continuing sunny theme I'm introducing my first stripe of Tunisian crochet, in very summery colors. The edges are not quite even though. You must have recognised those crystal head pins from my previous post. Not sure what was I taking the pictures of - the crochet stripe or the pins.
I like how the Tunisian stitches allow colors to be joined. I've learned only the basic so far which I picked up from here and here. The "canvas" appears to be indeed very tight and will be great for making bags and sweaters.
I was crocheting outside our house yesterday, with my husband sitting on the chair to my left. Our all-seasons-changing-tree is still naked, but probably will burgeon soon. Right now as it has some kind of berries/nuts on it and has been a very good feeder for squirrels and birds.
Yesterday we celebrated a Punjab festival Lori. I think it's linked to the farmers calendar. We had a small bonfire, and were eating yummy sweets and peanuts. As a coincidence it was also a so called Old New Year eve in my native country, so we kinda celebrated two holidays!
Hope you all had a nice weekend and having warm days at home or outside. Thanks for you lovely comments and for expressing so much interest to my sunny Indian days.
***Have a great start of the week!***
