Stringing Jasmine Flowers: loveliness in miniature

In India, especially down south in Tamilnadu, it is customary to string Jasmine flowers, and use them for prayers and to decorate women’s/girls’ hair.

Here is one I was stringing this morning with flowers my uncle had brought on his visit. Jasmine is rampant here and now!



Though experts tie these flowers with thread only, I use a needle and thread 🙄. I can do using thread alone for flowers with longer stalks, though. And when I do it next time, perhaps I shall post that too.
