HAPPY MOTHERS DAY


HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all of you!!!

Today's post is dedicated to my Mom, Mohini.......
I am going to post some of her art work today......

She has tried her hands in almost all type of work... like glass painting, nib painting, patch work, embroidory, embossing, engrewing, charcoal painting, crotchet work, marbel work, doll making and many more....

From the past few years she learnt more techniques in embroidory and did a lot of work on sarees, kurtis , ghagras and many bags and bed spreads.... Though because of her health problems she has not done anything from last year....
All of that, I will post later....

But as of now I am going to post a few of her art work which are in good condition...
My mom did all these art work some 15 to 17 years back..... So many of her work have perished and are not in a good condition....

Once again..... to all you mothers,
Happy Mothers Day!!!!


This is an Embossing Work.....



These two are Engrewing work....











These two are charcoal painting...

Some Oldies

I have no new posts as I am busy in my native .....

So I am going to update some of my old work which I have kept in my moms place and mom-in laws place.....

This is the name plate in my In-laws place ....

What I have written is PARNAKUTEERA in Kannada using m-seal work...

Parnakuteera is the name of our house....
It is nearly 3 and a half feet wide and I have used a wooden board as the base....
























This is a phone stand I made using m-seal and I made this some 3 or 4 years back.......













And this is an elephant which I made using m-seal on a pot...








quilling

I know it s been long since I last posted a blog…..

Since my daughter is having summer vacation…...

I am in my native in Karnataka…..visiting my mother, mother-in-law, and all the various functions like marriages, poojas, house warming ceremonies and threading ceremonies….

So I have not been able to do any craft… and so no new updates....

So today I am going to post an old photo of a card I had made using paper quilling







These are some close ups...........
