In the beginning of February this year, i have started to embroider a Kutch work saree and I have shown a small sample in a post here. Embroidering a saree is not that much easy. I got the inspiration from Anchor Needlenthread magazine. Started to embroider the pallu part. Slowly and steadily, inch by inch the embroidery begins to grow. Then I didn't get the exact thread color which I am using and for a month it was kept idle. Then again in July started to do it. So, i didn't take any new surface embroidery projects and when I got bored of doing the kutch work I used to crochet and completed some small projects in crocheting.
Now back to the kutch work saree. I am not able to capture the whole pallu. Whole pallu has been embroidered. 3/4th of the body part has been filled with kutch work. Other than kutch work I have used herringbone stitch and stem stitch. Have a look and pass on your comments. Click on the image to get a better and clearer view.
Now comes the body part with the border. The color of the saree was not captured properly here. The color shown in the above pictures is the actual one.
Here comes the close ups.
You Can see the post regarding the embroidery in the blouse here.
Hope all of u like it. will come up another Ta-da moment in cross stitch. Till then, Have a happy time with your needle n thread.
