lace

I had to switch back and forth from shuttle to needle tatting for the past couple of days.Even though it was an interesting experience I'd prefer to stick to one technique at a time.The biggest challenge while switching is to get the tension correct.                

shuttle tatted lace in progress for a lil' girl.

Happy stitching!

whitework motifs

Happy thanks giving to all my American friends!
Now that I have absolutely no pain in the wrist while holding tiny embroidery needles I'm spending more time doing embroidery and sewing.So I guess I'll be blogging regularly from now on :-)
I've made a couple of chikan embroidery motifs on a cotton dress.

small motif

It's been a while since I posted something here..I sprained my right wrist twice.I had to take it slow and recover.I was okay for a couple of days and then bad luck struck again...I dropped a pan full of hot oil and ended up with burns all over my left hand :-(.I'm okay now and getting back to normal life slowly.
I've embroidered a motif for a tiny pouch to hold prayer beads.              

Happy stitching!
