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.

This post is to cultivate a routine to progress on our projects in the right direction.  To see others progress this week visit Pintangle.

I did not work for the past two weeks so my progress is slow.
My immediate cousin joined the majority on Sunday night. He was 56. Times spent with him now cause pain.
Now to the progress on the projects-
Second week’s edges on Randje per week challenge was completed.

Another tunic was started, the colours are similar to the previous one. I tried some stitches on this oval shape, which were satisfactory. Outlines in chain stitch with cotton skein [red] and fine silk and metallic thread combo. Filling in fly stitch [green stranded cotton] and straight stitch in  yellow polyester thread.

I haven’t even looked at the Hussif. hope I can do better next week.
The studio journal lessons are used to design a piece for last week’s TAST stitch closed herringbone. The designing is done, the embroidery started. Enthusiasm has resulted in a medium size design- meaning time consuming, which is essential for working exercises for the class. I really need to think before deciding on something!
