New start in the new year

Hello Readers,

      Happy New year.  This year I have planned a couple of projects so that I can have a regular stitching and complete it.  Will list them in my next post.  One of them is a shadow work project in a saree.  The design I have taken is from Anchor Needle n thread magazine. 

The color of the saree is pale yellow and it is looking like white in the photo.  I was not able to capture the exact color.  I have completed one motif and today it is there for you to see.  The stones will be glued only after the complete embroidery is done.  For the time being I have placed the stones in the places where I am going to stick it.  Used two strands of anchor thread for the lines and 3 strands for shadow work(double back stitch).



A close up.


I have some FO's to show u.  So keep watching my space.  Till then, Happy embroidering.

  2. Lovely stitching! Isn't Shadow Work very unusual on a sari?
