neck pattern


For the past few weeks it was hard to find time to post on the blog. I was in India for a week.
The humid heat in Chennai, was difficult this time.
Though the stitch challenges were ignored, the progress on the projects was good.
The work on the neckline of the cream striped tunic is almost completed.

The sleeves of the neutral tussar tunic were also completed. Today, drew markings on tunic front. This will be simple embroidery with beads and sequins.

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.

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.

The stitch challenges are not started at all. I really need to work on them.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

It is still Wednesday and this post is on its way.
The stitch challenges were set aside this week. String bag for my friend was completed and given this week. I also drew four bookmarks with their names as another gift. It was an interesting work.
The zardosi work on the black fabric was also completed and waiting to go to the tailor.
This new project is simple neck design to be worked in silk threads, beads and stones. The colour is peach. After completion this will be sewn on cream chiffon fabric.

Happy New Year!
Last week my computer was not helpful.

My husband had cataract surgery done on his left eye on Sunday. He is recovering now.

Sharon is on the second stitch on Beyond TAST, SSS challenge also started on this Sunday. I am still waiting to start. The two stitches on Beyond TAST were worked before, so can be tried later too. The stitches on SSS challenge seem easy and inviting, they have to be learned and worked.
Two tunics were completed last week.
After working a row of chain stitch on the edge of the neckline, a single square mirrors was stitched on to this white and black tunic with stripes.

A border design  for a bluish green crepe tunic was drawn on black fabric yesterday.

 

I am still working on tunic projects.
The black ikat tunic was attached with the mirror work border. The border was sewn slightly away from the neck, and looks like the embroidered piece was not showing well on this black ikat fabric.
WIPW200-blaikmirt-5
I asked the tailor to take the piece away and attach it to another short top made of two fabrics. This time the piece was part of neck. May need some more embroidery, still thinking about it. These days, my tailor is sewing fancy necks for the back also!
WIPW200-blaikmirt-6
The kutchwork on this black tunic with printed border was completed. Now mirrors- to go with the markings or work the mirrors as a part of the motif?

Once these projects are over, two fabrics are ready to be designed. One is a saree blouse, another one is a chiffon fabric for tunic.
