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

This week was more of searching for inspiration for patterns. The beads and stones were added to the blue green crepe tunic. it is awaiting its turn to go to the tailor.

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.

I wear a yellow leggings with this short tunic otherwise called short kurthi. The tunic-

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

This week’s randjes were combined with straight stitches. Simple and effective edges. The free graph for these edges are here.

The last part of the pink crepe tunic was to fix white stones between the parallel lines. These stones have holes in the centre, which makes it easier to fix them. I used white cotton thread and beading needle for this. It was completed and is given to the tailor for his part of the job.

I took the yoke of the blue/green crepe tunic and started working small antique gold beads and blue stones into the central part of the yoke. This yoke requires more of these beads and stones for embellishment, which I hope can be done this week.
