The black work border on the other side was completed on the beige black work panel. Another border has to be started. This border also will be worked on both sides. Though it is taking more time than I expected, it is exciting to work this double running stitch. The stitch is continuously worked and is completed on the return journey. Interestingly one edge on randje per week challenge is a similar Algerian eye border pattern this week. But it is worked in two colours.

On the mirror work yoke, the mirrors are to be outlined with green thread. The other triangles are worked in orange thread, still not too sure that this orange is a good choice. But decided to go ahead with it. This is another multi coloured yoke!

After procrastinating for some time, I have decided to start the kalamkari drawing practice. After drawing these borders in 0.5 pencil, they are reinforced with 0.5 pen. The practice is done with the help of the images from the internet. I am choosing elements from the images to learn this art. Still a long way to go, but just happy to stay on track.
