From Dubai

We suddenly decided to visit Dubai during the shopping festival and here we are. We are staying in my nephew's house and we are having a great time here with his family.He has a daughter and a son who are very sweet and smart.As soon as we arrived they took a liking to us.They are brought up well and they are very well behaved.All these years I did not know that my nephews wife Deepa too was interested in crafts.Her daughter Bhavna too loves to learn new things.I taught them how to make paper beads and immediately she made one..Very shrewd.I would like to share some of their works here.

For a beginner,I think this far too good.This is done using embossed painting and the stems are zardosi and the ends are sequins.The first one(Ganesha) is glass painting.The last one is done by Bhavna.

Neck Design

This one I started long back and still limping towards completion.I was not doing well and so this delay.Now that the major part is over and wanted to stitch the lines and I am confused on what stitch to use for that.I have tried Spanish knotted chain here and I am not so happy about that.Any suggestion?Leela can you help me out?
