I took some photos of Their Lordships here in Dallas, so I wanted to share those with you too. It's not often that I remember to photograph the Deities, even during festivals. I'm usually too busy to even bring my camera, what to speak of snapping a few shots here and there. Is that so much to ask? In honor of Rath Yatra, I'm posting pics of Jagannath Baladevi Subhadra
Here is a close-up of the broomstick lace and tunisian crochet scarf. She is white but don't hold that against her, she has a nice sheen about her. I'm running low on thread so I have to pick up some more.

I'm working on a new project, it's a pattern I found on ravelry.com that I loved immediately on seeing the simple but elegant design. If you don't already have a Ravelry account, I suggest you get one. They have loads of free patterns and a yarn database. It's amazing, I go there for inspiration all the time. I made this Elise shawl for my Deities last year in wool for Their winter wardrobe.
|It's called the Elise Shawl pattern and you can find it on Ravelry. Here's a picture of my work so far.|
Something funny happened this morning, well I don't know if it's really funny or not but it was definitely weird. I found this really long saffron stem when I was grinding the Lord's chandan paste. I asked Krishna Chandra to run and get the camera so I could photograph it.
|Crazy. Really long saffron stem with style still attached.|
