What is Rakhi?
"Rakhi is basically a sacred thread of protection embellished with the love and affection of a sister for her brother. This day is also known as Raksha Bandhan and celebrated on the full moon day of the Hindu month of Shravana in India. This frail of thread of Rakhi is considered as stronger than iron chains as it binds the most beautiful relationship in an inseparable bond of love and trust. Rakhi festival also has a social significance because it underlines the notion that everybody should live in harmonious coexistence with each other."
"The festival of Raksha Bandhan is entirely dedicated to the love and affection shared between a brother and a sister. On this day, sisters pray for long life of their brothers and ask God to bless them with his blessings. Brothers, in turn, give them enticing rakhi gifts and promise to care life long. This custom has been there since time immemorial."
The bond of Protection.

Covered it with the scrap cloth pieces I had lying around,
glued with home-made glue that my MIL made with flour.
Now Vaasu can keep all his little toys in it!
No more littered around toys
(and slipping on them!)
That finishes up this corner,
I'd been wanting to make a Crochet bag for a long time now
And what better than to start with a little
FAT BOTTOM BAG
It's pretty easy to make and
THIS Video on You-tube by Elaine
helped a lot.
It's in Spanish(?)
and in 6 parts but explained pretty well!
The most difficult part was covering the rings with the thread,
my fingers hurt the whole day after!
Not lined yet,
but I hope I'll do it soon.
Just doodling with my shuttles and came up with this motif
Tied a red ribbon at one end....
what do we have??
I didn't know what to make it into....
hang on the door
Hang in the car!!!!
This has found it's place in my sister's car!
Little tatted flowers.....
what do you do with them?
Spice them up a little and ...
put them on hair clips!
And because it's festival time again
can HENNA be behind?
(one hand, the dark one, done by me!)
