Wavy shell crochet blanket

Hi my next post is on crochet. Though my mom taught me knitting, i was having less interest towards knitting, she wanted to try my hands on crochet. then i started learning crochet from her and from youtube. I did couple of ponchos and baby booties. After giving a long break i did this blanket.

This blanket i made for my mother in law . I got the pattern from youtube. 

Sri Ganesha

Hi this is my first post . I learnt this from my mother. I got inspiration on crafting from my mother, she used to decorate our home with all her works. This is my long time dream to make a Ganesha out of Aluminum sheet. This sheet i got it from india. I hope we get this kind of sheets in home depot .

I used wooden tools to engrave, screwdriver tip also serves the same purpose.
First I copied the design to the sheet , then i engraved on that and trimmed the unwanted edges carefully. Then i decorated ornament part and eyes with bindis.
