FILLInG DONE WITH CHAIN STITCH




I did this for my Sil..4 yrs back :)
When i was going through my album i found this and decided to put it up.
Both of us had gone out shopping and had bought this sheet but we could not find a matching pillow cover. So, we went and bought a plain cover and i traced the picture from the sheet and did the embroidery..the colours dont match much since at that time i did not get the same colour thread and they were in a hurry they had to travel back home the next day. but all in all.. it came out well. :)

My try out of CHEMANTHY work


I know its been sometime now since I have written here, been kind of busy with things at home, but today I had some time and was browsing when I saw this blog http://deepashome.blogspot.com/
I really loved to see her work. They are so beautiful.

I was going through her tutorial and decided to give it a try. I tried out the Chemanthy work and did it with ordinary cotton thread and hope it has come out right. It was fun trying out somethign new. Thank you Deepa :)

My First try on making a QUILT


This is one of the projects that I made 2 yrs back when I was back home..it was the first time I tried to make a quilt.

I had bought some material with which I actually thought to make pillow covers but I kept thinking and thinking and finally I ended up stitching this... :)

Actually it is made with fiber filling. Felt so excited when it was done...but never attempted to make another one since then..

My Basic Stitches


Stitching...specially embroidery...it is something that I love to do..but have not been doing for quite sometime now... :(

As I was sitting and browsing the net one day I got a sudden urge to search out the differnt blogs and see if there was anyone who shared the same interest as mine... and to my suprise...there were SO MANY... I went through most of them. :) and it was a joy to read.

It inspired me a lot..but the most that interested me was the site http://www.needlenthread.com/ it attracted me like a magent. There were so many stitches that were listed that I had not heard of :( but, the most happiest was that i could learn from the viedo tutorial that was there.

I had learnt embroidery but i never imagined that there were so many ways and SO MANY stitches.. That is when i realised i had not taken the interest to venture out and search.. i had beenstitching only what i had learnt over and over again.

So the next day I went and got me a yard of cloth and have been trying to make a sample piece of all the stitches i know and i am still learning..

I have just started out by learning.... now waiting eagerly to go back home may be in the next 2-3 months :( and start my projects and surely to post all that I have created though the designs were copied :) ....
