One project was completed and two projects are progressing slowly during this week.
The embroidery and bead embellishment on the centre piece of the red chanderi tunic was completed. I had seen some collections by the designer Sabyasachi Mukerjee. His bridal collections of sarees and lehangas are heavily embellished with sequins and beads. The embellishing part of this project was inspired by this collection.
Working on this piece did not sanction much time for sampler book project. But this project being a long term one was supposed to progress on a slow pace. Progress made during this week.
After pondering over this sampler book idea for some time has given rise to another sampler book idea on black work embroidery. I have some matti cloth bought in India which is not ideal for any cross stitch or black work projects. I have used them for working TAST samplers. Marking squares with pencil on this cloth was started yesterday.
