Hi all,

Hope all are safe and fine.

Today I am happy to share with you all a simple embroidery design.  It is stitched out of portuguese stem stitch and stem stitch.  I have worked this design as a part of an embroidery sampler for me.  And making small wall hangings out of these.  

Pattern for the design

Threads Used(Anchor Embroidery thread)
Stem - 269
Leaves - 262

For the stem I have used portuguese stem stitch and stitched the leaves using stem stitch.
I have used 3 strands of threads for both the stitches.

Hardangar - Aura Doily

Hi all 

Hope all r doing well.  

Today I am happy to share with  you all my new hardanger doily called Aura doily.  It is a kit I have bought from Anita of Artistic fingers.  I am happy that I have done a proper hardanger piece with the proper threads and needles for it.  It took me a week to complete it and looking forward to do more hardanger pieces.  

But I didn't have the hardanger fabric at hand now and once the lockdown is over and everything comes to a normal I will purchase the hardanger fabric and do some projects out of it.  Now have a look at the doily.

It looks beautiful on a black background.  But I am afraid that it may get stains and I am in a plan of framing my first hardanger piece.  with a black background and white frame.  

Hope all of you like it.  I am ready with two more embroidery designs and I will be back with that post in a couple of days.  Till then, Happy embroidering and all of stay home, stay safe and be positive.
