Lamp of Love & Joy Square
Hi, I started into hand crafts at the age of 6 ½ . My grandmother led me to embroidery and my mother taught me . My very first hand work was a floral embroidery on my blouse.
There after there was no stopping. All arts and crafts became my favorites. So much so that my classroom transactions had art components to enable learning.
My very first crochet work was with finger crochet technique. Made door mats with jute ropes. It was completely finger crochet. Then started with tkt 10, tkt 20 yarns. It was just a hobby crocheting for self and gifting all through my teaching career. Now taken up crocheting, knitting in full swing with designing.
I design Tunisian patterns, wearables, mosaic etc..
For this tutorial I created a mosaic pattern titled ‘Lantern of Love & Joy’ in mosaic. Idea was to lighten up the world with Love & Joy which engulfs Peace.
