decorative stitch


New monitor was set up on Monday. Images copied from hard disk yesterday. Today I am organisng the folders.
Now for the works in progress in embroidery.
The old kutchwork yoke looked like this before I started removing the beads, sequins and changing the colour.

It looks like this now, the next step is to replace blue with yellow.

This sampler was also worked some time ago, the details of which were not posted. The working is here on Queenie’s blog.
The sampler is started with the basic stitch, the next two samples are the back of the same stitch.

Two rows of this stitch are worked in two ways in the first two samples. Individual stitches are worked in the last part of this sampler.

I am catching up on the posts of Sunday Stitch School samplers. The working of this stitch is on Queenie’s blog.
I started the sampler by working the stitches between 2 parallel lines. The next ones are shorter versions of the stitch.
SSS.67.fishbst-1
After working the stitches on leaf and heart shapes, the fishbone stitches are outlined with stem stitch.
SSS.67.fishbst-2
French knots are worked around closed fishbone stitches in the first sample, fly stitches are used to work the second sample instead of straight stitches, the last sample is outlined with buttonhole stitches.

This was one of those weeks, where nothing went according to any plan. It was hard to find time to work, hard to get to computer.
The stitch challenges were never even thought of during the week.
Whenever I could find time, a few stitches were made.
The chain stitches with metallic thread on neutral tussar fabric progressed only this far.
WIPW213-neutusstz-4
The chain stitch triangles on this cream neckline were worked with variegated silk/ metallic thread.
WIPW213-creatussnt-3
It appears, this coming week too will be the same.

The stitch challenges are not started at all. I really need to work on them.
Projects
The work on cream fabric for the same colour chiffon tunic continued this week too. There are five similar panels in the shape of a long cone. These panels will be attached to the chiffon tunic on two shoulders, neck and sleeves. Stitches are simple -stem, leaf and straight stitches. Stones will also be stitched. At this stage, the first panel is nearing completion.
WIPW212-creabluts-3
The work on the sleeves of neutral tussar tunic progressed a little bit.
WIPW212-neutusstz-3
After tracing the border on the cream silk cotton fabric for the striped tussar tunic, the work started with chain stitch outline in dark maroon silk thread. This following week I will be working on this neckline embroidery.
WIPW212-creatussnt-2

The progress for the past weeks has been on projects alone. This week is also the same. At last I found the picture of the chiffon fabric on which the peach colour embroidery is in progress. The work is done on silk / cotton fabric, which will be sewn on this chiffon which has design.
WIPW210-creapeatz-5
Stones and beads are being worked now on this project. The flower on the left is complete with tear drop peach stones and seed beads. The flower on the right has just the seed beads, it will also be embellished with stones.
WIPW210-creapeatz-6
I had another off white chiffon fabric, for which the embroidery is in blue colour. It has five panels which needs to be embroidered. It is a long project. The designs were traced a few weeks ago, the work started with blue silk thread. I have not been working on it at all after this, it hasn’t grown much with all the other projects in progress, hoping it will progress more if it is shared here!
WIPW210-creabluts-1
The tunic fabric came from the tailor marked with sleeves and neck. This picture shows a part of the sleeve embroidery design and the neutral tussar silk fabric. The design was traced on it yesterday.

I am still working on projects this week. Generally, handloom cotton, silk, crepe fabrics are bought during trips to India. The season being cool here in Muscat, the silk and crepe fabrics are taken out for designing and embroidering. Some work is rich, intricate and time consuming. This year, even elaborate work is interesting.
Last week, the picture of the peach on cream chiffon was not clear. This picture shows the circles worked in detached chain and fly stitches. The chain outline is worked in two shades of peach silk threads.
WIPW209-creapeatz-3
This week’s progress is rope stitch on the stems and stone embellishment.
WIPW209-creapeatz-4
The work on navy blue blouse is faster because of closed herringbone filling. Realizing now, the gold metallic thread must have been harder to work, that is why it took so much time. Since it was repetitive, it was relaxing. The picture of the progress was not taken, because of the same motif.
A tussar silk in neutral colour is with the tailor for marking of neck and sleeves. The idea will be shared on next week’s post.
