I have not been a good girl with hussif work for the second week. It was not touched for a whole week. This week when I started working on it on Monday, it was to use waste canvas to work a black work filling [this is going to take too much time!]
We are having ten days holidays for Ramdhan. This will be spent in India, meaning stitch free ten days.
Border on tunic-
This was completed with mirrors and green/gold sequins. the outlines for the herringbones were done in back stitch with cone thread. the chain stitch outline was done with fine metallic thread.The anticipation to see this embroidered border has turned to satisfaction.
The kutch work also got some attention, with working the motif cluster in green [the border and salwar green]. It is creating too much contrast with the yellow fabric, still no further changes are waiting to happen! Time to work towards completing this project. This gives an ideas of working with two colour threads, may be in another project.
Randje per week
This project is added to WIPW now. A cross stitch challenge started early this year  on this site. Two borders are posted every Saturday. At that time TAST hadn’t resumed, very enthusiastically I decided to join this challenge, thinking allotting some time every Saturday would be very easy. Even before starting this challenge, on 26th Jan my husband needed emergency treatment and postoperative care. In February , a matty cloth[ an [un]even cloth with holes] with 8 inches width was prepared for this challenge. Slowly whenever I had time small samples were worked from the site. Now these borders have to be worked full 8 inches. Last week was 60th border. This week’s WIP is first three borders-
Studio journal class starts from today. Hoping I‘ll have time and proper lighting to work next week. This week’s TAST stitch is still in idea stage.
