Kansas living

Living in Kansas city is a pleasantest thing.
Here where we live in this colony is is a gated community and a big colony.
Near by is a park and a school.
Very big play area.
This is surrounded by greenery everywhere. During this spring pretty flowers all around. Varieties of birds chipping and it is also so colourful. Especially when I hang a bird feeder and put grains, a lot of birds are coming to eat it and Siddhu is very happy enjoying the sound and flying birds make him excited.

Before my visits to USA, my son used to plan for go round about and we covered all exciting places (mostly) at USA.
During last visit (Last May) i have to take care of my dil who was pregnant,and she hesitate to travel a lot so we had not gone anywhere out of Kansas.But lot of sons and dils friends visited to our house and cooking for them and get together were so nice for me.And about the satsngs every saturday. Temple visit every Sunday are made me happy.
But this time, being snow falling and cold and having a little baby i am held up inside the house and enjoy the full time housewife status.
Now, Siddu started to go to his school.
Yes school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! for 7 months old. It is so pretty. Lots Lots of plaything, sweet teachers to occupying him.There is something itching in my inner mind but no other go than leave him at playschool. I went personally and found the school is very very pretty and teachers are very kind. Even siddu likes to play there because he got friends there.
This is his school and I am hesitated take photos inside the school whether they may object.
After Siddhu went to school, both me and my husband had very good long walk rounded the colony in the  weather.
Then we go to GYM.

I used to do treadmill and cycling there.
About the swimming pool. It is Crystal clear and pretty. Thanks Naiduhall i take my well covered swimingdress and had a nice swim.

O.K. Time came to leave Kansas.
There is some worry inside me to leave Siddhu, My son and loving dil.
But I have to leave.
O.K. Thanks Kansas.

Finishing and ending of stitch without knot.

One of my friend was asking whether how will be the back portion of the plastic canvas will be visible after finishing the design.
Since i had given all the creations to Siddhus school to display in his room, i am not able to show the back side.
I am here telling how to avoid knot with wool in the back side.
first while start doing a design leave a long thread at the back. like this.
Then finish some stitches 0f your design in front side .Then insert the needle into the  lef overt therad at the backside i mean the begining thread.
Now wipe the thrad into the finished design at the back side like this

after fully wiped, cut the thrad.

After cutting the thrad it will visible like this. No knot will be there.
Back side also will be neat.

This is back side
After finishing the full design also, just bring the needle backwards and wipe into some stitches and cut the thread close by. So that there  will also no knot  be seen

And this is the frontside after finishing a design.

Even if back side stitches cannot be seen just add felt cloth to the backside while doing finishing up stitch with 4 sides. Or even neatly pasting the felt at the backside also hide the backside stitch.

Plastic canvas----Rangoli

I am doing this plastic canvas only. Nothing new.
First of all I dont have time todo.
Second thing, i dont want to get all painting and other material and dumb.
So only plastic canvas.
Only 2 weeks more to spend time with Siddhu.
Then we have to go back our home at Chennai.
When my daughter was a young child, being I am a working mother, she grown up at Coimbatore near my parents and brothers family.
For my son there was a girl name Banu who stayed at my house and lookedafter my children well. I still have thanks in my heart for Banu, who was really took care my little son very well.
So I really missed a lot of the childhood acitivities of my children. Now i think God has given me an oppertunity to enjoy childhood with Siddhu.
So I an enjoying every movement with him.
Time is passing very quick only 2 weeks more.
Weekends are play time for Sidddhu with his parents.
That time i will do some craft .
So is the plastic canvas Rangoli.
