Something not quilted

Coincidence.....is what i call it when i read about the Oktoberfest announcement on the India Quilt Guild on Facebook. It needs us to sew any kind of bag to participate in the challenge. I have just the thing that i finished last Sunday. A yoga mat cover that will go to a cousin so that she may go take her yoga classes.

My baby hidden behind the quilt. She so obligingly helped me photograph the quilt. This one goes to a new baby in the family. The pattern is Mosaic from Modern Minimal

Sushi and a glass of wine

When you love to eat, anything related to food becomes fun.Me and my sister Shweta had a lovely time last weekend at a sushi making party at a hotel in Pune. Sushi is essentially seafood and rice rolled in a sheet of seaweed. We had a good time watching types of sushi being made. The chef made it look so simple. And it was simple....till it was time to cut the maki with a huge chef's knife. Some of us did get it right though...without accidents. All the foodies gathered there had a go at rolling their own Sushi....and we got to eat our own creations. I had the distinction of being the only vegetarian in the assemblage.

 This is the one that i loved the most however couldn't eat it.....California Maki.

Me....trying a hand at rolling the Sushi.

Yay!!! i did it!!

Vacations and excuses for lazing around

It’s been a while since I posted anything on my blog. It has been a fun filled summer vacation for us with little trips around the town to places my kid loves, mangoes and more mangoes. We ate mangoes from breakfast till post dinner. If I put on a little weight now all these mangoes would have contributed to a noble cause.
 The woods near my place are much loved and frequented.  We went on frequent walks to see the peacocks and peahens wandering around the woods.
Summer was also a flurry of birthdays and parties including that of my princess. She turned 5 this year. 

Now you know why I haven’t touched fabric and quilting for the past 2 months. I have a couple of WIPs that I intend to finish now that the school has begun. Hopefully I will do so soon.

Baby Pansy quilt

With the vacations well under i hardly find time to sew. Apart from enjoying the summer, mangoes and the kiddo's antics i managed to complete one baby quilt. 
I do have a baby in sight who can use this one! :)
