Shadow work saree pallu

In the beginning of this year I have started to do shadow work in a saree. I have completed 3/4 of the embroidery and today I am showcasing the pallu part of it.  Earlier I have posted the motif here.  In that I have embellished it with more stones.  But finally I have decided to reduce the number of stones and this is what I have come up with.

5 big motifs are there.  The design is from Anchor needle n thread magazine.  Sorry for the poor quality of the photos. My photgraphic skills....................









I have to complete the flowers along the borders.  Thought of completing within next week.  But I ran out of  my pink thread.  So it will get delayed in completing this project.  And next week I will start of a project in kutch work.  Will come up with some crochet finishes before the final ta..da.. of the saree.  Till then, Happy embroidering.

I am  linking this post to stitchery link party.
