pale yellow and grey tussar tunic


A very Happy Christmas to Everyone!
The TAST challenge stitch kikos flower sampler was completed yesterday. One more stitch needs to be explored. Sharon has mentioned that there will be break from her regular blogging to work on her crazy quilting book.
There was some progress on other projects. Four edges were completed on Randje per week challenge. This challenge continues in the next year too.

Started working on beaded lock stitch sampler, a stitch which was missed during this year’s TAST challenge. The basic straight stitches were worked yesterday and today. Hoping to start with beads tomorrow.
A chain stitch outline is being done in gold metallic thread on this embroidery on sleeves for a tussar silk tunic. This thread has a manageable twist, which makes it easy to work with. Next is the embellishments stage- mirrors and beads.

This post is about the projects which are in progress this week. To see others progress visit Pintangle. This idea to have a motivation to work regularly on our embroidery projects was given by SharonB on her blog. It is very useful.
I completed two more borders on Randje per week challenge.

I hoping to complete this sleeve design, and catch up on the remaining TAST stitches which were not touched.

This post is about the projects done in this week. SharonB started this idea of sharing the work in progress on her blog. This post helps me to work consistently on the projects and challenges. To see others progress visit Pintangle.
These two edges were completed this week. I worked on them on my return journey from Dubai. The sun was so bright facilitating the work.

Progress on tussar tunic is minimal. A border pattern was drawn for the sleeves which combines traditional Indian  design and mirrors. Seems like this project could take some time. Started herringbone filling stitches with fine silk thread.

When going through a pattern book, I saw a greek border pattern. This led to drawing kutchwork squares on this pattern. I am trying to squeeze this small project this week.

Between the Dubai trip during the weekend, and these two projects, the beaded barb stitch is yet to be ventured. We had another stitch yesterday.
