Heard of Super computers na? Akshata is a Super human being! A lovely soul. She is an Engineer, a crafter, a good cook, a great dancer, ever smiling with a never say die attitude, a super mom :) Its difficult to sum it all up. I have missed out on soooooooo many other feathers in her cap!
She's learnt to knit and crochet recently. It was last march. She had come down with her lovely kids from USA and I had gone with my girls to meet her. There, we used to have a lot of OUR time, sharing craft bits and sweet talks. One of our activities used to be in blogland. We decided to crochet something. The lovely Tea cosies was what we chose to crochet. And the inspiration came from Alice of Crochet with Raymond. Here, have a look http://crochethealingandraymond.wordpress.com/2012/02/12/cozy/ .
First task was to find a tea pot. My sis - in - law had one. And I started to crochet the tea cosy for Akshata to take off. She was new to crochet but managed to get hold of the stitches. This was probably a day before we left from there. And this girl used to crochet a few stitches whenever she found time, that too no simple task. Managing three kids. She has a son and twins - two lovely girls.They were then 10 months old. I left the next day by train. It was a long journey back home! The next day, when I called her to say we had reached, she said check your mail :)
A beginner, dabbling in crochet in a day's time!! Why did it take me a year to post it? :) People update on WIPs and I have missed out on a few Ta...dahs.... unpardonable. Shall soon post about a jacket I completed last Nov!
She's learnt to knit too. Her mother in law taught her how to. I took pics of her work. Mind you, she knit two of everything for her twins :)
All this, while managing a home and three toddlers!!!
Isn't that inspiration enough to work hard!
Have a wonderful week ahead...........
