busy b

so what have i been up to recently, hmm lets see...
i have been thinking about all the products that i plan to make..cushions, mats, table runners, napkins, pouches etc. for this i went exploring the old city of Pune over the weekend, i was guided by a senior cum friend M from college :) and found lots of interesting shops and fabrics.
i bought some fabric for my sister in law's living room cushions...now this sister in law of mine hence forth referred to as SIL (my brother's wife) also lives in Pune and is totally cool.
so i will be designing the cushions for her as my next project and will be posting about them right here on my blog...so watch this space.

the coaster business is going just fine thanks to my very large family! touch wood now!
a cousin in Delhi has ordered 20 sets...thats like a hundred coasters thank you very much! i have no idea what he plans to do with them...send them out as corporate gifts or something? i will have to replenish my RM (raw material) reserves for this order. cousin in Bombay ordered a set..the one that i posted yesterday. my dear friend N, also a blogger, who now lives in London (ahhh when will i go there again) ordered three sets yesterday, SIL from above has orderd two sets, cousin V from Pune bought a black and white set, my other sister in law called Di (husband's Sister) who is in US wants a set...two friends have already bought from me...

so all that makes me a very busy and a very happy girl. no i don't become a woman just because i am married now :)

the weekend diary



























so i went to the India International Furniture and Decor Fair that was held over the weekend here in Pune and came back with these two little African birds...aren't they real cute? now i bought these from a Kenyan girl who apparently is a regular participant in these fairs. she had some really good stuff :)



and what do you think of my white bougainvillea? i have wanted a bougainvillea plant in my house ever since i was a little kid (: and now i have it! when i picked it up from the nursery it was just some leaves...and within a week it began to blossom and i fell in love!





i bought these two ceramic bowls over the weekend too...from a local seller in aundh...he had a cart full of exciting things made of ceramic and recycled galss {which is a  rage in the design world now but oh so common in my country Jai Hind (salute)}.


the art piece in the background: the center piece (with the writing) is work of an artist on etsy who goes by the name Freya Art and Design and i put the collage together myself :)
i got more stuff too....
.................................next time!
