I was thinking of a yoke , made of just mirrors. For this , A plain dark green[synthetic fabric] was chosen.
Then came the choosing of the colours, pink and yellow always go well with green, then some white beads to complete the effect.
I wanted to fill the yoke with stitches without much empty space,so some herringbone stitches were also added.With pink and yellow being the only colours,the herringbone stitches were done with the contrasting colour.

The pattern was drawn in a graph paper, using stencils for mirror rounds.
Three strands of anchor cotton skeins were used throughout the embroidery.
A simple and easy design, can also be used as decorative seam, colour choices depend on individual preferences.

Today was a day for learning day for me .I started working TAST st,and found that I was not as fast as I thought I was. Generally when I stitch, I don’t have to think much. but today , I was thinking ways and means of doing it,imagining the result, continous threading and unthreading,wondering if this is what I wanted the result to be. I do have to go a long way in this challenge.I don’t even know ,whether I have bitten off more than I can chew. and this is the first st.

today I also visited a few stitching blogs-these people are doing such amazing  creative things.Where am  I now?I find that I fixed a boundry, and I have trained myself to work within it. When I have to cross this boundry, I find myself fumbling.This is new laerning curve from today,and I am happy that I joined this challenge, I ll try small easy steps first.
