If you couldn't reach my previous post (thanks Jojo!), I apologize for that as I played with my blog settings yesterday. Now it is working in normal mode, and I have something to share with you. First of all, I am staying at home today as I have fallen ill a little, and have plenty of time to do my favorite things, one of which is of course, crochet. My Autumn/Halloween preparations have been pending for long and it is high time to start it. First I thought of making an amigurumi pumpkin, but somehow was not satisfied with this idea, when I suddenly got inspired to crochet a cute pumpkin drawstring bag you see below - two in one! I used my own drawstring bag pattern and slightly modified it - it is shorter now and non-stripy :)
I was very pleased with how it turned out as the ribbon I bought just two days ago appeared to be so suitable for pumpkin design! I filled this bag with my jewelry and miscellaneous things, and it lifts up my mood every time I open the cupboard. I might prepare a pattern for the same if I have enough time, otherwise cannot promise even to myself.
I found nice shabby settings for a photo shoot at our backyard - some old chairs. This bag made my day, and I love the orange and green together! I wonder if it'll look this way in yellow color, as I want to make more of such bags as gifts.
Time flies and it seems like whatever you plan stays a plan only. We are in the middle of October already, just two and a half months till new year! I am half way through with my blanket and I have big expectations for myself by the end of this month. Let's see.
I hope that those living on the Eastern Coast of India, manage to be safe, as the tropical cyclone Phailin hits that area today. It is a super cyclone which waves will be felt up to North India, so we await storms here as well. Even today the weather is significantly cooler. I am sending blessings to all of you, my friends! Be safe! ( and sorry for being bad with comments recently, I promise to catch up with all of you soon).
