The Randje per week 2016 chart was completed on Saturday. SharonB has announced a break of 4 weeks on TAST challenge. The next challenge stitch will be on 16th August. Though I am not working all the stitches during this challenge, it is nice to see the different possibilities of the stitches created by other members.
There are some blogs which host weekly link of the works in progress. We can link our blog weekly to that post. It is interesting and motivating to see the works of other people. These links are more for quilters. This is one such blog where we can post our embroidery works too. Super Mom!

Sometimes while browsing for inspiration, the choices are so many that even after completing a project a longing is there to improvise. This time, while looking at the design for sleeves for this tunic project, an urge to add another design element came to mind. So some changes were made. Hoping to control these urges, at this rate, none of the projects will get completed, and even if they do, the satisfaction may not be there.
White tunic with majenta kutchwork on green
Keeping aside the brown piece for a while, the kutchwork on this green fabric was started. Yes it is the same green fabric from the chikan work tunic. This is continuous border design for sleeves.

Gota patti
This is my friend’s tunic project. The design was completed during this week. And my friend traced them on to the fabric.
Mirror work
While looking for inspiration from this book ’3,000 decorative patterns of the Ancient World’ a small geometrical design seemed apt for a mirror work embroidery. The fabric is hand loom cotton.

This is another soft cotton block printed fabric. The tunic design is to create a combo with this fabric and another white block printed fabric. It is with the tailor, the mirror work embroidery around the neck will commence after that. The main idea is to work a small project, all other projects are time consuming
