This is the last bag in the set of embroidered linen bag. The design and embroidery has the influence of crewel embroidery. I am fascinated by the beauty of this embroidery. I love the designs, colours, stitches of this work. I have just started the journey in this enchanting world of crewel embroidery. I have to learn a lot to move further. First and foremost, I did not have crewel wool to do this work!
The pattern, it is askew.

This bag is a favourite and was not given away. My husband also liked this bag. Next ones were monograms on satin bag.

The idea of posting the work in progress regularly is great motivator to progress on our projects. To see the others progress visit Sharon’s Blog.
I completed [!] my sumptuous class project. I feel it is not completed because. I went through the lessons, the work of other students and wanted to learn, try so many things, but practical side took over, I completed the two projects with the limited developed skill. Sharon is a wonderful teacher, I feel blessed to have taken her class. Now, I have to keep myself moving in new areas- free form embroidery, study textural embroideries, embellishing the work, to name a few. I would like to share my journey on this blog. I have a weakness of getting too comfortable in known spheres. This prevents me from trying new things, I gratify myself by looking other people extending their abilities. This class was an eye opener. Still I have to stay on course and not slip back to my routine.

I worked a little bit on my hussif. The seam-
This lace seam is worked with detached chains[ not seen clearly, wrong choice of green] , straight stitches[ dark pink over the circles] and pistil stitches in light green

Started with feather stitch, worked detached chains[ I need more choice for leaves , too much repletion of detached chains] . The flowers- buttonhole wheel, chain stitch and buttonhole edging. These will be embellished later.
