A day to remember and tell your friends that you love them and care for them. We have a festival coming up next week. Raksha Bandhan. When a sister ties a `Rakhi', thread of love around her brother's wrist reminding him to protect her. A thread that binds them. The brother inturn gifts her and vows to look after her. There is a practice of tying Rakhi to a male cousin, to even an unrelated boy/man who is considered a brother. Being away, I send them `Rakhi's by post. To my two brothers and three lovely men to whom I have been tying a `Rakhi' for over two decades. I thought why not send them handmade Rakhis. Googled a bit, found a pattern and here's what I created, using embroidery floss of Madura Coats
It turned out to be a crafty time with my daughter too. She too created a few bands using yarn. I never thought she'd have patience for one! but she created a few.
Creativity can stem from NOWHERE and become NOW HERE.
