Smalls SAL - August finish, Herringbone needlepoint block

Months back I have started to stitch a part of EMS design and it went to WIP after some days.  So as a part of smalls SAL I have decided to finish it.  I am going to make this into a pillow cover.  I have included tht top border and a rose from the whole sampler.  You can find the design from here.  It is a freebie.

Also, I have added one more block to my needlepoint sampler.  It is herringbone stitch.  Learned the stitch from here.  You can learn about more stitches and patterns in that site. 

I am almost nearing the completion of my shadow work saree embroidery.  Hopefully in my next post I will show u my completed saree and a crochet Ta-da.

A kutch work finish

Happy to show you a kutch work finish.  Yoke and sleeves for a kurti.  Done using three strands of anchor embroidery thread of shade no. 881.  I ran out of thread in the middle and that's why it took so many days to finish it.  Embroidery is done on silk cotton fabric.  

Closeup of the yoke.


Now two mandalas from my sketch book.
I have learnt to draw this mandala from here.

I am ready with some crochet finishes too.  They are waiting for their turn to get photographed.  Will be back with another finish in crochet and some WIP's.  Till then, Happy embroidering and doodling.
