red cotton


Happy New Year!
This year’s starts on a Wednesday, best time to make a resolution to post regularly on blog.
The projects are in progress, so nothing to start for new year, just continue working on these ones. Christmas was  a surprise with my friends being here instead of their usual vacation, which I will share on another post.
Green boat neck blouse progress is gradual on this neck borders, I enjoy the variety given by this pattern.

Red cotton
Actually my friend has this idea of embroidery in black on red fabric. The red Egyptian cotton was bought to work this idea, I could draw and trace floral clusters on this fabric. When I started to work, both of us realized, the contrast could be more. Still having started it, I am planning to work on it, there might be left over fabric for another short tunic, which can also be used to bring this idea in a better way.

Blue neckline while working on navy neckline embroidery, I worked only with cream threads, this time it will be a combination of blue and cream. Started the project after tracing the design.

Stitching time seems to have reduced during this year, stitch challenges were not done much at all. Have to evaluate and bring some changes, otherwise after some time, even new ideas might diminish.
More stitching this year!

 

Still working on tunic projects this week.
Completed the mirrors on grey striped tunic. And it is with the tailor now.

Inspired again by this dark and light contrast idea, I designed another neckline for a cream chiffon tunic .The embroidery will be done on dark blue silk cotton fabric.

Red cotton
This fabric is Egyptian cotton. I had planned to start work on this tunic, the dark blue neckline embroidery idea intruded. Have to see if I‘ll find time this week to work on a design for this tunic.
