The band sampler of last week’s lace stitch along with a few NESSAL black work borders was completed. This week’s stitch is mount mellick stitch. I have not worked this stitch before. I have always wanted to learn other embroidery techniques. This mount mellick embroidery is one of them. Taking the opportunity given by this challenge, an idea of working a sampler of some stitches of this embroidery along with this week’s stitch as come up. The shapes are drawn on paper and traced on a beige fabric. Hoping to start the work tomorrow.
This week’s stitch is a beautiful stitch with a long name- buttonholed cable chain stitch. The samples were worked on earlier challenge. The link was posted on FB group page yesterday.
I have started the embroidery with gold metallic thread on this green fabric.
I am going to India for a whole month on this Saturday. Four weeks is too long to be without stitching. Just sorting through the projects to take at least two of them to India. Really hoping not to buy tunic fabrics for embroidery.
