white black mull mirror tunic


I have not fully recovered still. But feeling slightly bored of this heat stroke.
It was hard to work the SSS challenge satin outline stitch well-ordered. Though it was worked with cotton strand, it was not as easy as it seemed.
I started working on mirrors on this mull tunic.

The fabrics are from two three shops. Excitement is there in buying fabrics, there is also a worry of completing the embroidery projects. I was so sure of not buying too many fabrics. We have too many shops. It is so easy to go and buy. I am hoping to stitch more this week. The bull’s head stitch on SS challenge seems interesting and easy.

I have been in India for the past few weeks. I could stay here till first week of May. Generally stitching comes to a standstill on a vacation. Browsing the net is minimal. This routine is not working now. Too much laziness is also not good. I might forget everything.
It is hard to work the stitch challenges. They are put on hold.
I have two sewn tunics to be embroidered. The first tunic is mangalagiri with chanderi silk cotton patch.
