It took some time to work the alphabet chart on RPW 2016 challenge, but it was completed the next day.
We have two week’s stitches on TAST 2016 challenge. Both were worked earlier. Interesting variations of raised chain stitch over straight stitch rows. The link to the samples were posted on FB group.
Pink kutchwork border on green
This project is moving quite slow, because of the size of the squares. This pace is fine. The bigger diamonds are being worked with pink thread.
Orange and violet combo tunic
The same colour scheme on the sleeves is to be adopted for rest of the embroidery on this orange and violet combo tunic. Starting with orange and yellow on this corner design.
The beadwork on the beige tunic with mirrors was completed.
Last week a copper mangalagiri fabric with zari border was given to the tailor to be sewn as a tunic for a readymade Patiala. It came back with a very creative yoke made of zari borders. This is definitely a surprise. But still not sure whether it is pleasant or unpleasant. Something needs to be done, with an idea- if it works, fine. If it doesn’t, the front can be concealed by the dupatta.
But the tailor seemed quite thrilled with his innovation.
