The last part of the pink crepe tunic was to fix white stones between the parallel lines. These stones have holes in the centre, which makes it easier to fix them. I used white cotton thread and beading needle for this. It was completed and is given to the tailor for his part of the job.

I took the yoke of the blue/green crepe tunic and started working small antique gold beads and blue stones into the central part of the yoke. This yoke requires more of these beads and stones for embellishment, which I hope can be done this week.

Most of this week I was working on the kutch work borders. The samples were small, but taking pictures of and posting the work in progress took three days. For more details see here.

I did the couching of polyester thread on blue/green crepe tunic.actually this could have been tried after working the pink crepe too, still I wanted to see whether the thread would go well with the whole embroidery, which it did!

The embroidery on pink crepe is progressing very slowly. The pattern is for the front and sleeves. Some stem stitches were worked in the same green thread and some straight stitches in fine silk variegated thread are started on flowers.

We visited the Muscat festival again this weekend. I also took some pictures of embroidery from Uzbekistan and Thailand, which I will share as soon as possible.

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

Working on these randjes has been different this year. Whenever these graph patterns are posted, I see the potential for kutchwork.
Designing kutchwork patterns started long time ago. The enjoyment in drawing these kutchwork patterns are surpassed by the working the same patterns. Each and every pattern seems to have its own unique path of anchoring stitches and interlacing.
Coming back to the randjes, this week’s free graph pattern is posted here. The completed 7th and 8th randjes.
