Lata, I am uploading my extension of your basic design kolam. Friends as I didn't had time nor space to implement this design, I have done on the paper itself. if any one is impressed by this design, pls try on the floor.

Padma, the centre original design is very neatly drawn. the outer extentions are very attractive and colourful.
Let us see who will try this on the floor.
I too could produce only paper drawing

You have embellished the design so much that the main design has become subsidiary! Great work, let us see it on the floor Smile

Padma, what a pretty design you've given us here! I like how you've extended the design with diyas and kidney shaped structures, and also dotted smaller designs around the edges. Nice coloring ideas too. I'm so glad you could take the time to participate and treat us with this design Padma. Thanks so much. Smile
(I'm also getting angrier by the moment at myself for not having the time to try this on the floor. I'm very behind in my schedule with this site work (among other things), and so very mad...I want to stomp my foot and scream like a kid :0 )

I think I forgot to mention that the netted pink lines are beautiful as well.
