I am back on my routine. This week’s edges are simple to work with. Big borders are interesting, but with so many ideas for tunic projects, I prefer these simple borders. The free graph is here.

This post was neglected for the past few weeks because of some intrusions.  I am falling back to routine. The work on red kutchwork yoke for brown linen tunic was completed. The yoke worked with beige colour  thread.

This yoke is long and narrow.

I was inspired by a pattern from an old book downloaded from the net. The pattern was drawn on a blue fabric. This was also completed this week. Should this post be- Work completed Wednesdays?

This design has two paisleys. I want to work the outlines with silk threads and incorporate them with zardosi tubes. Just started the outlining with pink threads.

I was away for a week to Chennai, India. There was some problem to open my blog through internet explorer for the past three weeks. No stitching was done on this vacation. Last week was busy catching up on this challenge.  The free graph for these edges are here.

I am working this edges on handloom matti cloth, the width is not very long. With these two edges, the first piece was finished. The idea of making this piece into a drawstring bag is hovering in the mind. Another similar piece was prepared for next set of edges from the same cloth.

After catching up on these edges, did not have the mood to work the kutchwork edges based on these patterns. I have started designing yoke for tunics. More details on next post.

This whole week I was having difficulty to post on my blog. This one is tried through quick post. This week’s edges have two colours and they are really nice to work. The free graph is here for these edges.

This week also the Kutchwork samples are skipped, got fed up with this posting on blog experience.

This weekend was a stitch free one, we drove to Dubai. I had thought of working on the way home, but eyes were too tired. The edges this week are quite interesting especially the 23rd edge. The free graphs for these edges are here.

The kutchwork border samples are skipped this week.

For some reason I was unable to post on my blog for the past two days

Some progress on kutchwork on brown linen tunic. Half of the kutchwork pattern is done in red thread, which is not very clear. but it is there!

I am in search of embroidery patterns for tunic, samplers. Once in a while I have the habit of downloading old pattern books. From a book of Hungarian motifs, this pattern  repeat was picked up. Still not clear about the project on which this will be used.

This is from another book. I want to expand this pattern. Project is not yet decided. It was hard to find the source of these books now. All I can say that these are not mine.

I am reveling in the process of browsing the net for ideas at the moment.

This mirror work yoke was done in 2012. The idea was to have a filing pattern made of mirrors. I had small and big square mirrors which were ideal for drawing the pattern on 2mm graph paper.

The tunic was deep red with block printed yellow motifs. Deep red fabric was chosen to work mirrors. Two colours were based on the tunic- deep red and yellow. Green colour was also added to give it and full Indian ethnic look. The outlines were done in chain stitch. The detail.

when I counted the number of mirrors on the pattern,it came to 100, so the name stuck.
