This week’s randjes on Randje per week2015 challenge were simple.

The kutchwork border samples based on these were also simple.

I could complete them on the same day.

Some progress on kutchwork on brown linen tunic. Half of the kutchwork pattern is done in red thread, which is not very clear. but it is there!

I am in search of embroidery patterns for tunic, samplers. Once in a while I have the habit of downloading old pattern books. From a book of Hungarian motifs, this pattern  repeat was picked up. Still not clear about the project on which this will be used.

This is from another book. I want to expand this pattern. Project is not yet decided. It was hard to find the source of these books now. All I can say that these are not mine.

I am reveling in the process of browsing the net for ideas at the moment.

This week’s randjes were combined with straight stitches. Simple and effective edges. The free graph for these edges are here.

I am taking a break from blue/green crepe tunic to work on the pink crepe tunic. zardosi tubes are worked into the petals. These beads are bought from India. Better choice of colour of zardosi tube was not available. So started with the same colour tube. I picked up the idea of cutting the tubes with nail cutter, from a Thai embroiderer at Muscat festival. The detail of the front panel. This is the first time attention is given to the varying length of the tubes. Earlier they were all cut together and worked into the project without much care. Another step in the right direction.

Just to get a breather in between, the kutchwork/ mirror work pattern was traced on to maroon cotton fabric for the brown linen tunic. I started with the kutchwork inside the mirror pattern in brown thread.

After completing the Randje per week 2015 edges this week, kutchwork samples inspired by these edges were also worked during this week. The details are here and here.

The work in progress of these kutchwork border samples based on randje per week 2015 cross stitch edges are posted here.

while working on the Randje per week challenge this year, I have this idea of  trying some kutch work borders based on these cross stitch edges. This week’s

The instructions and pattern are here.

In the border # 14 the motifs are tried in three different ways.

These week’s edges are interesting. We have the second colour. I used cream polyester thread as the second colour. The free graph for these edges are here.

Inspired by these edges, 2 kutchwork borders were drawn on paper. Working the samples and posting the details are the next step.
