The chart could be completed on the day it was posted on this challenge.
I am yet to post the samples of fern stitch worked during earlier TAST challenge on FB group. This week we have another stitch -buttonhole wheel cup. I just posted the sampler on FB.
Black border tunic
The border on this tunic is woven with metallic yarn. It came back half sewn from the tailor, for working the embroidery. After tracing the pattern, I started the chain stitch outlines with gold metallic thread. A paisley pattern was also traced on this tunic front.
After the Dubai, I was itching to do some simple embroidery on light weight fabric. This white cotton kota fabric with block prints in green is ideal. Pattern is drawn. Have to start the work.
These two fabrics are cotton, one has stripes and the other one has prints. The printed fabric will be the front of the tunic and the striped fabric will decorate the back. Pattern drawing for embroidery is in progress. This is for a simple Indian ethnic embroidery.
While browsing the pinterest yesterday. I was ensnared by Maarash embroidery from Armenia. This is similar to kutchwork. Eager to study this work more.
