Crows and my fear

Comic Art of birds at my place…made by me

We have grown a lot of plants and trees at our home.. our backyard looks like a mini jungle. We have grown many fruits and vegetables and other trees at our place. Many birds live here.

Plants at our place where many birds have their nests.

At our home there live pegions, doves, house sparrows, tiny green bird, bulbul, tiny and very shiny black and blue bird and many more…i don’t know their names exactly but i love them a lot. They have become a part of our life and are our family. I love the chirping sound of birds and wake up every morning to this sweet chirping sound. My husband feed them daily. I keep water for them. And we take care of them and their eggs.

Pair of doves sitting there.

But One day, last month only (in June 2020) i don’t know from where a crow came to our house and smashed the nest and eggs of tiny green bird. I tried to shoo the crow away but he killed the green bird’s eggs and returned next day with a gang of crows..๐Ÿ˜ณ Those crows were very distructive and smashed many nests. I saw a fight between crows and birds that day. All the birds were attacking crows with their beaks. But poor birds fail as the crows were big and my birds were tiny.

Smashed nest of a bird ๐Ÿ˜ญ

I am daily shooing them away and these crows are killing birds babies and have smashed the maximum nests of birds in my home. They are so destructive that wile i was shooing them away a crow jumped on a tube light at front porch and break it..grrrr๐Ÿ˜ก

Now i see a very few birds at my place. Only doves and other two birds are here. I wonder where the other tiny birds have gone. Has the crows killed them or those birds ran away out of fear m.. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ I want my all the birds back..

Empty nest of a tiny green bird. Crow killed its babies and the bird cried entire afternoon then it went away. ๐Ÿ˜“

My husband want to shoot the crows with his air gun but i don’t want him to kill any creature. So i hide his air gun. I am trying all natural ways to shoo crows away.

I am seeing many crows these days at my place. Like – at the roof of my house, on the trees where other cute little birds live and everywhere out side our house..

I don’t like crows. Their voice is really hoarse. I’ve heard that if u see crows at your home that means someone is going to die. I am feeling very negative and scared. I don’t know if it’s true or not. But these crows are bad. They kill other tiny birds and their babies and eat them. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Bulbul live there

I am feeling restless today. I can hear my heartbeat. I think its anxiety.

The weather is hot and humid. This kind of weather makes me sick. I have rhinitis allergy and this weather aggravates it.

Do you know any natural ways to shoo the crows away? Pls suggest.

Pin cushion with flap : A Sewing tutorial.

Hello there,

I m back after a long long time. Got stuck with so many things in life.

Today, i m going to share an easy sewing tutorial about how to make a pin cushion with a flap out of scrap fabric.

Four square pieces of size 4″ร—4″

First of all, we will cut four square pieces of size 4″ร—4″ out of our scrap fabric.

Then we will take two pieces and sew them from 3 sides and cut the two corners as shown in picture below.

Then we will flip it out and iron it.

Tadaa…. our flap is ready.๐Ÿ˜€

Now we will take the other piece and put the flap on the right side of the fabric as shown in picture below.

Again we will take the last piece and place it above the flap as shown in picture below.

Observe the above picture carefully and make a stitch like this where I’ve marked leaving half inch margin.

Your piece will look like this in the picture above. Cut the edges and flip the inside out. The flap will also come out when you will flip it.

It will look like this from one side after flipping..
And the other side.

Now stuff it with the fibre cotton from the little opening.

Add as much cotton as you want.
After stuffing it with cotton, close the opening with ladder stitch.
Opening closed with ladder stitch.

Then we will make a button hole on the flap as shown above in the picture.

Attach a button and… our pin cushion with flap is ready
My needle and safety pin will be safe in the flap..

My needle and safety pins will be safe on one side of the pin cushion. With the pins on other side..๐Ÿ˜€

My pin cushion with flap is ready.. yay yay..

This is my first try to make a sewing tutorial… i hope its not difficult to catch..

Will be back with the new sewing tutorial soon…

Bye ๐Ÿ˜Š

Sanitary Pad Pouch

Hey, how r u?

I’ve been little busy for a while with my sewing and design studio. Writing a blog post after a long – long time..

Look what i made today. “A sanitary pad holder” or you can call it “A sanitary pad pouch”.

I saw the idea on pinterest a year back and today i thought to give it a try. Made this pouch out of scrap fabric that was lying in a box in my sewing studio. And i am quiet happy with what i made. I painted the eyes on it with a white acrylic colour.

Actually, it is a very useful pouch. You can put your sanitary pad in it and keep it in your handbag or backpack. And moreover your sanitary pad will stay clean among a lot of things in your handbag.

Do you have a sanitary pouch? I am going to make a lot more cool designs of the same.

You can buy from us.. or you can join our sewing classes and learn to sew a lot more cool stuff.

Stay happy,

Kaur

Wondering and worrying at night

It’s 3:30 a.m. and I am unable to sleep. My husband made me watch that stupid horror movie. Now I am scared. 

I am worried too. I have to wakeup early in the morning tomorrow for gym. I was unable to go to the gym for whole week. May be more that that coz of rains. It always rain at the time of gym. I’m worried coz I need to lose weight and not able to mend my eating habits. Unable to quit sugar. I want to be skinny again. I want to wear all those pretty clothes that I used to wear 3 years back.

I have itchy eyes during rains. I wonder when will the rains be over. It’s so slippery everywhere. I like rains but this time it’s been many days that it has been raining. And now I m hating it. I m unable to go to gym or shopping or anywhere.

I’m worried coz next month I’m going to open my sewing and design studio. I have loads of things to do. I wonder what kind of customers will be there. I don’t like people who fight and argue. Will I be able to make their perfect fitting clothes?  Will they be satisfied? I’m tensed now. I am missing my mom nd dad.I wish if they would be here with me in Lucknow. It would have been easier for me then.

Also I am feeling hungry. Want to eat something really nice but don’t know what. Even Maggi is out of stock. Just ate a 2-3 biscuits with water.

I wonder why I am not feeling sleepy. I was really tired and super sleepy when I was making dinner. But now… There r lots of things going in my head. 

Oh god, I need to sleep.
