My mother... talented. Period. I told her I wanted to have something like an over the door organiser (something like this) to hold my loose beads. She often visits the market in Dadar, Mumbai and I wanted her to look out for something similar. 

[This post is cross posted from the other blog]

And in a months time, this is what I get. Handmade. By my mother. Using her old cotton saree that I love. Take a look.

Palm sized compartments to access the beads easily. 

18 compartments or 36? ;)  check again!

And that is only half of my stock sorted and arranged. 

It has doors!!! Doors, can you believe it! They can be tied together to close the organiser when not in use. :)  Sunday was spent tying and untying the knots, fussing over where to put it up, taking pictures, organising beads...

Man,  I feel like a little girl with a doll house. :)
