I started with the first decorative seam today on this personal challenge of working the seam treatments worked and detailed by SharonB on her blog in 2006.
I wanted to draw the seam, but I was in a hurry to post this today, so it is not neat. I just used highlighter for the beads.

SharonB has been detailing some of her works in progress on Wednesdays for the past one year on her blog. Others have also been following on her steps in detailing their works in progress there. I want to join and give sample of the project I am doing now.

This is my current project, applique and embroidery on cream tunic fabric. This is an orange colour block printed fabric over which I have embroidered. I want to applique this piece on the cream fabric, I have stitched the mirror on the orange and cream base together [ this is to avoid sticking the embroidered fabric with glue] , the next step is to stitch it around the edges.
