Wish you all a happy merry christmas
happy and fabulous and prosperous new year 2010.

Embellished version of salwar kameez

Look at the post here without embellishing.

After embellishing with jamki’s, there is a huge difference. Check this out?

A nice wall hanging

This work has been done by my MIL. It is a handicraft which includes a mat and needle and threads. One has to just follow the color and instruction given with the kit.

Is it not beautiful?...

Design on plain salwar kameez-8

Here is another project that i've done on a plain brown color salwar kameez.

I started with a plan of stitching parsley motif which I saw in one of the website which I don’t remember right. Thanks and courtesy goes to that great stitcher.

But then I somehow didn’t like the outcome. It was good that I started near the neckline..Even if I do something wrong, this will not get displayed as the neckline will get covered anyways with dupatta. I didn’t want to remove it as well.

Then I decided to try a different pattern and I stumbled upon this stitch named chemanthy.

I tried 2 different variations of this stitch.

Tutorials are here.

I joined these chemanthy flowers with running stitch embellished with some jamki here and there.

Please let me know your feedback on this.
