Kasuti Embroidery Motif

This is a Kasuti motif which I have embroidered in a cotton saree.  The saree is having a border in both the sides and I have planned to do kasuti motifs for the pallu and the body.  Till now I have done 4 motifs like this and more than 25 small motifs in the pallu.  Still more to go and I will post the picture of the saree once it is done. 
 
I have used 2 strands of anchor cotton embroidery thread and 2 strands of silver color silk thread for the motif. 
 
Sorry for the picture quality since it is taken using mobile camera.
 
 
I will be happy if u pass on your comments about this.

  7. Thanks to all.
    @Sudha. You can get more designs through the net. If I saw a worked piece I try to draw the pattern in a graph sheet and then I will work on that. You can get some patterns in www.embroidery.rocksea.org. Try googling for kutch work. You will get lot of patterns.
