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.
