Beaded watch strap

Weekends I am busy.
My daughter, soninlaw and Naveen were visited over here and I am enjoying with them.
But again Monday seems very long............
Waiting for next weekend.
Let me try something.
I found a old watch. It is still working. But the strap is damaged.
Let me remove it.
Then what to do for strap.
No chance of going out in the hot sun.
Let me prepare something myself.
I started doing with beads.
I completed it.
Have a look.
I had done it with black glass beads and centre silver beads.

I am staying somewhat a long distance from city.
I don't get flowers to perform my poojas.
I found a little girl playing in our park, waiting for her mother to come from the house wherein she is a housemaid.
The little girls name is Abirami. Cute little girl. Studying 9th standard. I conversed with her, and she readily accepted to bring seasonal flowers for me .
Now i don't have any shortage of flowers. Abirami supplies me flowers and I am happy.
This beaded strap watch i made it for her.
I am waiting to see the surprise happy smile from her face.

Embroidary done on saree pallu.

Hi friends........
Happy entering here after a struggle.
Yes i was sick.
Recovering fast.
Like to view all friends blogs.
Like to see comments for my post.
Happy interacting with you all by way of this blog.

Sitting idly is very boring.
Dontknow what to do.
Look this Saree.
It is a printed pure silk Saree I bought it at Delhi when i visited over there last year.
I like it.
Suddenly i noticed that the pallu part is left without design and simple mango(paisley) design.

Oh ho.....
Got an idea.
Started doing little embroidery over the design.
Since i need more rest, i am doing very slowly.
I am able to complete only one mango up still now.
Have a look.

I will complete all the other mangos soon and will post here soon. O.K.?
