While visiting Sharon’s blog  I read that there  are some interesting  things going on stitchin fingers.Do pop over there and see. the first challenge on”post a photo of—” is couching.

I don’t have any photos to post.I have done earlier kashmiri couching stitch on a green silk tunic.I don’t have the pictures.I wanted make a sampler of the kashmiri couching stitches, while doing the first TAST challenge.Haven’t done it though.

 While visiting this Shawki’s blog  today,I found some thing interesting.There are   free projects here.

green crepe

This embroidery I did in 2008.The tunic fabric is printed crepe in green.

This time I was smart enough to  do 2 things-

1-I  did the embroidery on a different piece of cloth[cotton].

2-I gave lining to the tunic, so that  it maintained its shape.

the embroidery did not have many contrasting colours.

The focus here was antique sequins and beads. So the pattern is a very simple one.   geometrical repeats were designed on a graph paper.Now for the closeup-

I was quite happy with the  embroidery, pattern, stitching of this tunic.I am wearing it as a salwar top now. I do seem to have lots of green tops, though!
