Butterfly Pen Stand

This was originally a spoon-stand, meant for my kitchen. But the sides were open grilles, through which the spoons kept sliding out. So I covered it up with paper and thread, and decorated it into a pen stand.

The shells are from the beaches of Pondicherry, and the flower center is an Kundan-work patch meant for a sari from a craft shop.

Cross-Stitch Tablecloth

This table cloth is my latest creation, and therefore the one to come onto this blog first :).

The designs here are from 2 different sources. The center piece and border are antique Central European, and the side flower is a simple design picked up from another site.
