It was a week in Chennai, India which kept me on my toes these two weeks after Diwali festival. Generally I love rain, may be not so much this time in Chennai. A wedding, visits, waiting times, it was hectic and wet. Hardly any time to even think let alone do some work.
The braid stitch on a string bag was also completed during this time. Time flew, another few more new stitches on SSS challenge are added. Still thinking of ways to work them. There was connection problem in Chennai too. Thorn stitch on SSS challenge slipped through that. Time to get back on track including the SSS challenge posts.
Projects

The highlight of this project is the open chain stitch of SSS challenge. This stitch is used for working the leaves. Still working on this project.

The UFOs are piling up. Now there is another interest to embroider on blouses for sarees. This is the influence of Indian festivals and weddings. Hope these ideas are fruitful and don’t vanish. Many years ago I have embroidered blouses. At that time it was quite rare. Nowadays everyone seems to be wearing these blouses with embroidery, beads and sequins. Too grand for my taste but they can be used as inspirations.
