Twisted satin stitch and its beaded version were announced together on the TAST challenge by SharonB. I first worked on the twisted beaded satin stitch before leaving for India. After returning I have started with this stitch. Twisted satin stitch is combined with other stitches in this sampler.

Anna's 60th birthday

Anna’s 60th birthday

I was in Chennai, India for the past two weeks.it was for my brother’s 60th birthday celebration. This birthday is celebrated in our community as a wedding with all the same hymns and rituals during their marriage. The difference is –the sons and daughters take responsibility of this wedding[ in the first it is the bride’s father]. This is the picture of the tying of the sacred thread.
