The second colour is back again. After changing the first colour for the past few weeks, I was looking forward to use the second colour. Here it is on this week’s edges-

There has been some progress on this black yoke. A few more colours were added. After working the white thread, the mirrors will be stitched with shisha stitch. This yoke has big mirrors.

A thought came to choose another fabric as tunic for this yoke, instead of the white printed fabric and wouldn’t budge from the mind. So the base fabric is changed to base fabrics- a combo of black and black ikat.

I always wanted to combine white with red. This printed white fabric seems ideal to use red fabric on it. Hope I don’t abandon this fabric again.

The pattern was drawn yesterday. This yoke also has mirrors, rather I should say it has other stitches along with mirrors!

This embroidery around the neck of this cream and yellow printed cotton tunic was done in the fourth quarter of the year 2013.

The embroidery was on bright yellow cotton fabric, which was also the salwar fabric. The pattern had two parts, a medium size kutchwork border and a curved design. Both were worked with cotton skeins. I tried to bring an assissi effect, by working the background with herringbone filling and outlining with back stitch. The tunic-

I am enjoying this challenge thoroughly these few weeks. The edges are simple and nice. The free graph pattern is their blog.
