Cream and black chanderi tunic
Some progress was made on this small piece this week. The sequin were attached with silk thread. the stitch worked is different from the usual mirror stitch. Holding on to the sequin was easier and keeping the thread in its place was difficult. I thought differently when this work started.

TAST 2016

The stitches of the past weeks have been worked before. SharonB is asking for the opinion of break after 50 stitches. Since I am not working on the current stitches, the aspect of break is not an issue. On my part I would like to learn more than the 140 stitches worked on the earlier challenge.
