randjes to kutch work


It seems I have few works in progress this week.
SALS
MMM SAL
Every day I work for half an hour on this month’s mandala. After working back stitch on the outline, design was started with the help of chart posted on the site. I didn’t realise the blurred quality of the picture.

RPW 2018
Though this a weekly SAL, I haven’t started the cross stitch. But, using the border pattern, a small book mark with Hindu lord’s name in my language is in designing stage.

Then, I will move on to designing these borders inspired kutchwork pattern. Whether they will be worked, is another story.
Challenges
Beyond TAST
Using the idea of working Sashiko patterns, the embroidery on yellow table cloth was started. The work in progress on the third panel.
WIPW161-BTAST-1-Sash-5
I am looking through Kogin and Swedish weaving techniques for this challenge.
SSS
The band sampler on this week’s stitch on SSS challenge was started yesterday.
I have added a few more mirrors on Blue grey ikat tunic. It gives a necessary change of work.
Some time is allotted for each work every day. Not much time on stitching, but widening the knowledge through other’s work is very interesting. Time passes very swiftly.

This week was more of searching for inspiration for patterns. The beads and stones were added to the blue green crepe tunic. it is awaiting its turn to go to the tailor.

Some progress on kutchwork on brown linen tunic. Half of the kutchwork pattern is done in red thread, which is not very clear. but it is there!

I am in search of embroidery patterns for tunic, samplers. Once in a while I have the habit of downloading old pattern books. From a book of Hungarian motifs, this pattern  repeat was picked up. Still not clear about the project on which this will be used.

This is from another book. I want to expand this pattern. Project is not yet decided. It was hard to find the source of these books now. All I can say that these are not mine.

I am reveling in the process of browsing the net for ideas at the moment.

This week’s randjes were combined with straight stitches. Simple and effective edges. The free graph for these edges are here.

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.

These past few weeks, I have been drawing some kutchwork borders based on these edges. This kutchwork embroidery is very common in Indian Gujarati ethnic embroidery. I enjoy trying new ways to design this embroidery work. These days books are available for these. Earlier, the people [tribal] who did these combined with other embroidery stitches filled the whole cloth [wall hangings, box covers, blouses, bed sheets to name a few] continuously, the placement of the patterns depended on creative mind of the worker. Their inspirations were from nature and the works done previously. The kutchwork borders sample pattern inspired by this week’s edges.
