Ferris Wheel doily

I like doilies that to in wheel  shapes and I came across this Ferris wheel doily in coatsandclark site.  It was very easy to make and can be finished within an hour in full concentration.  The exact link is here.  Have a look at it.  It looks good  as a center piece in a table especially in a black background..

With a flower vase in center of it.

This will also look good for a cushion.  I have kep it in a red background but black and white combination will goes well.

I am having so many doily patterns collected from the net in my to do list.  Whenever I am bored with embroidery I will take up one doily pattern to do.  Till then, Happy Crocheting.

Chikan Embroidery design

I am back again with my chikan embroidery design.  This design is from Mridulas Chikankari embroidery course book.  I have worked this design using the bhakya stitch and the Sidaul Jali(wave stitch filling) stitch.   I have embroidered this to practice sidaul Jali stitch.  Sorry for the wrinkles in the cloth.   Hope all of you like this design. 

 I am planning to do a chikan embroidered tops.  I am in the stage of selecting a design.  Fabric is ready.  Do watch my space.  In my next post I will come up with a crocheted doily.  Also have a look at another WIP.  Kutch work with other embroidery stitches.

Have a great time.  Happy embroidering.
