This tunic was worked in 2012.
This cotton tunic is handloom cotton in golden yellow. The Indian pant is cream and yellow with a wavy pattern.

Just as expected, I couldn’t spend much time on my stitching. But it was not household work, but other things which were not conducive for stitching.

My brother’s health is not good. he had a mild Heart attack a few days ago. He needs surgery.
I restarted the blue thread on flowers on this cotton navy tunic. Just a few flowers were worked.

The same colour thread is used for working more double running stitches. Drawing and tracing the design took a long time on this fabric for white printed mull tunic, the stitching definitely would take a long time too.

If the stitching work is minimum this week, it wouldn’t be a surprise.

This past few days have been good stitch wise. The SSS challenge looks inviting week by week. I do have to set aside some time for this challenge. I lost tracking Beyond TAST for few weeks, really need to check are there any stitches which were not worked before.
Changing the colour of kutchwork on black yoke was completed. Luckily a mangalagiri fabric may go well with this yoke. A black fabric can also be sewn along with it.

After completing the stems, a different blue thread was used to work the border around the neck. My friend is not sure about this colour, let me see.

The neutral colour tussar work is still going off and on. This is a part of one completed sleeve. The other sleeve needs to be worked now.

The black work design on bluish green yoke for printed mull tunic was started with the colours from the fabric print, after this white thread will be used predominantly

The next few days, it seems I might be busy with other house work, so next week’s progress may not be much.

This week went with the works on tunics.
I am still in the mode of changing the colours of the kutchwork black yoke. The blue colour was changed to yellow. This project was restarted with changing the blue colour, somehow green preceded it. I have started with changing the blue on the other side today.

After filling with blue thread on this gold neckline, I started working isolated fly stitch variation with green novelty thread.

Now that I am getting more friendly with my computer, I would like to post the details of the finished projects of this year.

Somehow time flew away last week before I could write the post on Wednesday. I have been working on some projects. My earlier projects and challenges are set aside for the time being. Few years ago I had made names on towel edgings in cross stitch for my nephews and nieces. Their sons saw these and wanted one for them with their names. They are very young. I thought instead of cross stitch, free style embroidery can be worked. The elder one wanted blue towel.
WIPW215-tob-1
The work is started on this one.
WIPW215-tob-2
The second towel. the younger one wanted a purple towel. I couldn’t get that colour. Designing is completed. I will start after finishing the first one.

These fabrics are 1 metre each. A tunic is to be made combining these two fabrics.
WIPW215-Greeorcit-1
I have an old yoke, which may be matched with these fabrics. I need to attach some mirrors to go with the green fabric.
WIPW215-Greeorcit-2
This was also an old yoke on black tunic worked with Kashmiri embroidery, this was attached to this variegated tunic fabric.
WIPW215-blamulticolkasht-1
The outline does not look good, planning on filling some places to make it look better. Have to wait and see.

I want to learn buttonholed fly stitch [from last week’s SSS challenge] during this week, Seems like an interesting stitch.

 

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.
SSS.47.tsinsst-1
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.

SSS.47.Two sided insertion stitch sampler

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.

It appears, this coming week too will be the same.
