2.square ornament[14] Seba2


The Seba designs black work pattern was used for ornament. The design was meant for cube ornament. Instead of working six times to make a cube, I worked the second design into a square ornament. This was started the previous week and completed during this week. Oval shaped red stones were attached to this black work pattern, this was not part of the design.

This week’s edge on RPW2016 was completed on Saturday. The details are here.

I started with the second design. The same square pattern needs to be worked six times to make a cube. This time it is not a cube ornament but a square ornament. The design needs to be worked twice. Saves time too. This is worked on 14 count Aida with anchor cotton skein and variegated fine silk thread. Hope this project is worked during the following week.

A few more kutch work borders were drawn in the last two evenings for kutch work border designs collection.

An idea of working Kashmiri embroidery [chain stitch] on crepe silk fabric is at the searching for the right design stage. Will be happy to start the embroidery on this project next week.
