I went to Chennai, India for two weeks. It was a whirlwind trip. A wonderful combination of spiritual, religious, social and shopping. The embroidery was not even looked at during this period. After returning to Muscat, first started with the Randje per week challenge 2015 catching up.
Shopping included some handloom fabrics for tunics, of course! This tunic is printed soft cotton, with cotton crepe salwar.
With an urge to use a contrast fabric as yoke for this tunic, a striped mangalagiri green fabric was chosen. The idea is to use the stripes as base for linear stitches, started with zigzag back stitch and chain stitch outline.
An idea to revive the kutchwork border designs which were drawn in the year 1992 has created another activity now. The process of coping these designs [the papers became old] started 3 days ago.
