Aari embroidery - A beginning

Some years back my DH bought two needles when i asked him to get crochet needles.  At that time i didn't know the purpose of that needle. only last year i came to know that it is for doing aari embroidery.  From that time onwards i am trying my hands now and then practicing the aari embroidery chain stitch.  But i didn't succeed.  I gave up at that time.  Then again i was impressed by the aari embroidery done on the blouses and decided to try again.

  I practiced, practiced and practiced.  Uff....  And finally i got the flow of doing the aari embroidery chain stitch.  But not in a fast pace but in a normal speed. These are the two samples I have done.  But I have the problem of ending the chain. sometimes i am able to end it properly but some other times after ending it the thread is getting frogged.  But somehow i have managed to do these samples and now i am having a hope that by practice i can get it right.  Have a look at the samples and do pass on your comments.



Now some close ups.


I should try more and more and I have decided to do some embroidery in a blouse before the end of this year.  Wish me good luck.  I will come up with another piece of embroidery soon.  Till then, happy embroidering.
