A poem by St. Ephrem

All kinds of storms trouble me,
and you have been kinder to the Ark.

Only waves surrounded it,
but ramps & weapons & waves surround me.

O Helmsman of the Ark, be my pilot on dry land!
You gave the Ark rest on the haven of a mountain,
Give me rest in the haven of my walls.

.......beautiful poem......Praise you...LORD

Crochet Scarf

I finished my Crochet scarf...my first one ever...it came out bettr than i thot.....i did this with eyelash yarn .

First i had a pretty tough time with the yarn, but somebody helped me n gave me the tip that eyelash yarn shud b used along with normal yarn..and yes..Things became easy..

Actually , this particular yarn is havin a slight shiny texture too but i guess one cant make it out in the pic...

I am extremely happy with the fringes 2.... :)

But now my eyelash yarn is almost over n i don have any diff colour of this yarn 2 :( n i donno wre to find them in Kuwait, so mayb i hav to wait till my next trip to india.....

Pics of my projects

There are not many...but a very few crochet projects that i have done, starting from my skool dayz....

picture 1- is my first ever crochet in my life,the bigger mat,

it was with the help of my crafts teacher,mrs petronia madam that i did it.that was in 8th std.

i was so excited abt my new hobby that i used to do crochet crochet even in the class hours..hee hee.
That is the oly picture I have of the initial dayz of crochet....at that time I had made many and gifted to all my favourite aunts!:)

The below pictures, as u can c of the mat which i attempted after 7 long years. I din know to change colours in between before, ..well !crafts madam hadn't taught us that..

so i learned it from U-tube and it worked!
I think the project is not too bad considering the gap of 7 years!

The next picture is a Granny square which i attempted for the first time after the gap..learning from U tube itself....

This smaller granny square has given me some confidence so as to start a bigger one..right now working on that.....
