PONGAL GREETINGS.



A Very Happy Pongal to everyone.  May happiness and prosperity overflow this pongal and for the rest of the year.


I quilled another pongal pot this year. I used 200 gsm hand cut strips for most of this piece except for the paddy sheaf .which is 90 gsm paper strips.I made the pot using a circle template for reference and decorated with yellow and violet strips. It looks very good in person. I only planned to quill a pot but with the encouragement of my entire family I included every other element of the pongal celebration. Today being Surya pongal. The Sun is worshiped and thanked for the harvest.


Thanks for stopping by, Have a great pongal.
