We went to Dubai during the weekend. Maybe we felt the oppressing heat here is not enough, driving through the desert would be more exciting. It was a change from routine. After Wednesday stitching was not done, and I  started working from Monday. So progress was not much on projects. Stitch challenges are on hold.
The zardosi work on pink fabric has to be resumed. The tracing is continuing on cream fabric for the kutchwork border project. It seems like a lengthy project. Better to work the stitch challenges and some small projects while working on it. I have an old readymade blouse in cream, kept because the dress pattern is good, which can be used  for another blouse. A green mangalagiri fabric with border [which will be removed] may be perfect for this.

The embroidery can be worked in green thread similar to this fabric on black cloth. A floral design for the yoke was drawn yesterday.

When I was browsing some old patterns on the net, I came across some cord work. This gave me an idea of working a row of beads between two chain stitch lines. I don’t see any connection between the two things here, still a pattern was drawn to incorporate this idea on a yoke. The tunic fabric-

I have tried some new ideas on some of my tunics. This is one of them.
Queenie as you requested I have posted details of the work.
