Mixed stitches embroidery

 Hi all

Hope all are doing well.  Today I am here to show you a small finish which is a WIP  for a long time.   The design has been taken from a kutch embroidery book.  I have started to practice the kutch work motif(I started to do before 5 years - LOL).  But after doing the motif  I felt that I have selected the wrong colour. In the beginning of this year when I was cleaning my cupboard I got this WIP.   I traced two patterns of the same design.  But now I have decided to complete one and I will try to make it into a wall hanging.  

Video tutorial of basic Kutch diamond. 

Now let me show the design.

Some close ups


Herringbone stitch Leaf and flower.  
Only at the time of editing this blog post I realised that I have embroidered the flower using green colour(poor concentration).   Centre of the flowers are done using satin stitch.  The small leaves are also done using satin stitch. Stems are done using stem stitch. 

This is the kutch work motif.  I have used variegated thread here.  I am thinking how to turn this piece into a wall hanging.  Once I complete it I will post it here.  

Hope all of you like this pattern.  I am planning to come up with a simple craft tutorial.  So watch this space.   Till then, have a nice day.
