This month’s stitch explorer is casalguidi embroidery. I have never tried this before.I am happy to try any  new form of embroidery, but the difficult part is getting  the idea for using the embroidery on a project.Without the idea it is hard for me to learn, but without mastering , I can’t have any I  still haven’t started on this casalguidi.Iam yet to start on the trellis stitch too.

 I found this new stitch challenge in the blog-– Twelve dozen stitches in twelve months. It is very interesting.I’ll see if I can join the challenge. I have  started on the stitches, but I need to try harder to keep up with the challenge.This is the sample I made of the first stitch, I am not using  any beads.


The fabric I am working on is a handloom cotton from south India. Iam just using the  threads from other projects.So choosing the colour combination, will also be interesting.I can mixmatch as I feel like.

 Iam also working on other projects,Iam designing, embroidering on tunics .selecting monogrammes to customise hand towels,browsing the net for ideas for small ornaments and their finishing techniques- I realise I have to go a lllloooooonnnnnng way. I should be more regular on my posts.

I am sorry I have been very lazy in writing the tutorials of- kutchwork, phulkari.With so many UFOs – give me some more time, I ‘ll get on them.
