 Hi all

Hope all are doing good.  somedays back one of my reader and friend Raji asked me an embroidery design related to the festival Diwali.So I have tried this simple design for her. Used simple stitches in this design

Pattern for the design

Stitches used
Flowers- Lazy daisy stitches with straight stitches inside.
Centre of flower - French Knot
Base of light - Back stitch
 Flame(tear drops) - Satin stitch
Letters - Back stitch

Anchor thread numbers 
Lazy Daisy - 63 (6 strands)
Straight stitch - off white(6 strands)
French Knots - 63 ( 6 strands - 1 or 2 wraps)
Back stitch - 851 (3 strands)
Satin stitch - 291, 333 ( 3 strands)

Hope all of you like this design.  I am planning to finish this into a small wall hanging. If it works out I will be back with the tutorial for finishing this embroidered piece.  You can also finish this as a hoop art. 

Have a nice day.

  2. Shami: This is a lovely design.
    I read up on Diwali, I bet it is beautiful with all the lighted candles and lights.
    Please show us some photos of the lighted festival, when the festival happens.
    I like learning about others cultures.



I would like to hear from you as it boosts me up a lot.
