Last week was the festival of Diwali.Come Diwali and its all about feasting, lighting clay lamps, pujas to welcome Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth, card parties and crackers.
Buildings are decked with strings of fairy lights. That's a seven storey building, lit up with tiny LED lights.
I love the magical photograph which results when strings of fairy lights, a little breeze, a slow shutter speed and an exploding fire cracker come together . Looks like freestyle embroidery. I should try translating one of these pictures into an embroidered piece using metallic threads and sequins.
Have a great weekend, the celebrations continue with a birthday and a barbecue this weekend.
I have been working and hope to have new things in my Etsy shop next week.
