Plea to Americans

This is something I don’t usually do. However I am doing it – not just because its been “only” bothering me and I need to do all I can to create awareness – but because there is something inherently not right about this. Killing animals. Uprooting life when they aren’t even interfering.

Sow and cub

To cut the long story short – this video – exactly demonstrates the impact of American Congress’ Approval Killing Of Hibernating Bears And Wolves

Now I am not a PETA activist or a part of any animal welfare group or organisation, I don’t have pets, and yes not an American ; but being a part of this planet I feel the need to speak, rather write about this.

Several news stories are being covered on this subject and needless to say multiple animal welfare organisations are trying there level best to resist and probably not let it become a law.

If there is something about this you feel is not right, please do something.

Favorite pictures from February

February passed by too quickly. When suddenly a month passes by and you barely realize it – you’re busy !

Much research and personal philosophy of myself and my husband led us to a Montessori close to where we live. The Montessori method of education is the closest match to our ideal standards of education and we felt it was time to start familiarizing our daughter to the external world in small but secure steps. Thus myself and my darling Amaira enrolled ourselves in the “mother toddler” program.

February marked the beginning of her stepping out in this small Montessori setting holding her mommy’s hands. Here she is trying out her brand new pink sports shoes for her “nu nu skool” (new new school)

She has always enjoyed her coloring sessions, but with friends at the Montessori its just more … errr chaotic (you thought I’d say fun – didnt you ! ) Its fun too …. for me. Like you can see the parts done by the mother and toddler below (and please dont mind the shadow)

And the excitement of coloring continues even at home … on walls, sheets, furniture and sometimes paper.

The whole of Feb was also test for Amaira’s immune system as it was getting acclimatized to the new environment and the pathogens ! I read that there are over 100 varieties of the virus – wow !  She had (and still does) several bouts of cold ,cough and sometimes fever. Several visits to the doctor too. Hopefully her health should be better soon – really hoping. I realize how much as parents we read about whats going on with children – can we be called half doctors 🙂 (“quack” laughed the duck)

Besides balancing home, the trips to Montessori and handling all the emotions and stories after that – there is always something that I do – my work and my passion. Last month bought to life a truck load of both organic fabrics and regular cotton fabrics – some of my best designs that were best sellers were back.

Looking at the fruits of labour of your designing job is beautiful. My eyes twinkle almost each time the design comes to life – whether as a journal cover or as a fabric. Personally a very rewarding moment.

Some of the most sought after prints that came back with “popular demand” were the batiks, kalamkari’s and the block prints.

Also the herbal vegetable dyed organic cotton lotus print.

I also loved these images sent by one of my clients Abbi Franki who has an Etsy shop – SewAbbi. She made these gorgeous bags for her daughter using this fabric from my shop.

What’s written in the stars for Pisces this month ? Or how about writing your own destiny

I’d like to end with this post with lovely quote that used to keep coming up on my Facebook feed – and almost each time I would stop and look at it to admire. The whole archival paper ,the color rendering and the soft yellow with the innocence and simplicity – I adore this whole image and the deep message. I even made it my Whatsapp profile display picture.
