A recovered hand embroideried table cloth

Let me share with you all a forgotten embroidered table cloth finish which came out from an old bag, from the bottom of the cupboard during the shifting process….it’s a bit wrinkled and badly need a press…

 This is the centre of the square table cloth.Its an ordinary navy colored cloth that I had in my stash.I got this motif from an old embroidery book that belonged to my grandma.I used button hole stitch for the pink flowers.

These are at the corners of the cloth.Remember those painting books that we used to have in childhood.It used to be a delighting experience to fill those pics with splash of colours.This used to be favourite activities on  the idle  holiday afternoons when everybody else was resting.Yes ,this is  one of those pics.I got this from one of those old painting/coloring books.The middle flower is in a deep shade of pink while the smaller flowers are in a shade lighter than the bigger one.

This is it.I am thinking of using it  to cover for my microwave oven.

Back after a while

Good morning friends,at last I am back from a break .This is my first post after returning home.We returned to the city when the city was beaming with the festive mood and lights.after all its the Durga puja time,the largest festival of the Bengali's.Durga Puja is like a giant carnival and the entire city celebrate it  by visiting the puja pandals, eating finger foods sold by the street vendors and buying souvenirs.The city takes a totally different colour especially during this time of the year.Its lights every where ,passions start pouring out, creativity flourishes ,people are out on the streets dressed in their fineries in the honour of ma Durga even defying the extremely hot and humid weather.Me being a Bengali  is no exception.So ever returning from USA was extremely busy to sit down and write something.Moreover due to the festivals there was holidays prevailing and we were left with no Internet connections.It is only last week that we got the connection.Thank god that it was during puja that I was with out the net ,otherwise I don't know how I could have spent the time.
