This is another summer special tunic. It is with the tailor for marking the neck and sleeves. The idea is- chikan/ shadow work embroidery worked in white thread.

Regarding Marash embroidery study and implement, this progress has slowed down a bit. Designing is progress for a tunic. The idea for another project with this embroidery is still simmering.

There was not much progress on embroidery work. I was seeing many Marash embroidery work. The history of Armenia was sad.
Keeping the idea of Marash embroidery a border was designed. I am a novice at circular kutchwork patterns. Three more ideas on this type of embroidery are waiting in queue. It is a different experience to plan and scheme a kutch pattern without mirrors or other stitches. Still it is very interesting. Hope to design them all before it slips from the memory.

The chart could be completed on the day it was posted on this challenge.
TAST 2016
I am yet to post the samples of fern stitch worked during earlier TAST challenge on FB group. This week we have another stitch -buttonhole wheel cup. I just posted the sampler on FB.
Black border tunic
The border on this tunic is woven with metallic yarn. It came back half sewn from the tailor, for working the embroidery. After tracing the pattern, I started the chain stitch outlines with gold metallic thread. A paisley pattern was also traced on this tunic front.

After the Dubai, I was itching to do some simple embroidery on light weight fabric. This white cotton kota fabric with block prints in green is ideal. Pattern is drawn. Have to start the work.

These two fabrics are cotton, one has stripes and the other one has prints. The printed fabric will be the  front of the tunic and the striped fabric will decorate the back. Pattern drawing for embroidery is in progress. This is for a simple Indian ethnic embroidery.

While browsing the pinterest yesterday. I was ensnared by Maarash embroidery from Armenia. This is similar to kutchwork. Eager to study this work more.
