Not much of progress was made on embroidery work, because we went to Chennai India for a few days. My mother is not keeping well and had to undergo surgery for broken hip.
After returning on Saturday, the Randje per week 2016 challenge of this week was completed on Sunday.
This week’s stitch on TAST 2016 challenge, arrowhead stitch was the one I had already worked in 2012. So not much of working required, just some browsing on facebook TAST group to see other members samples.

I had started on the Kashmiri embroidery [chain stitch] on the grey tunic. This motif is on the back of the tunic below the neck. The same motif is repeated ten times more on tunic front and sleeves. A major project.

On our Hand embroidery lovers group , a picture was posted on which a large circular  kutchwork design was done on a saree pallu. We couldn’t get the pattern for it. Being a circular pattern where the the prominent motif was a kutchwork paisley. I drew 1/8 th of this circle on A4 size paper. This part of the pattern can be repeated eight times to get a full circle. The pattern.
