Embroidered box top

Hardanger embroidery is one of my favorite techniques. I’d like to have a hardanger WIP always. Indian embroidery is my comfort zone and to try different techniques like crewel, hardanger , whitework is a different experience which I enjoy .
Here is a small project which is no more a WIP, Yay!

I received this jewel box as a gift from my brother and the supplies from my motherJ.
It feels good when one WIP is crossed from the list even though it’s a small one, isn’t it?
Happy stitching!

A month back I was thinking about seasons and the grass ….Crazy brain of mine!!!!
I had so much of work to do then, but I kept thinking about this ....
To put an end to this I started painting grass in different seasons and time of a day. Here is what I came up with….

I'm happy with the results.What do you think ?
Unfortunately I had to stop playing with paints because of the bronchitis.Will get back to this as soon as I recover fully …
Have a great day wherever you are!

Floral band

Hi !
Bronchitis is bothering me a lot this season. In addition to the climatic conditions inhaling too much of paint/varnish since my neighbors have decided to pick this time of the year to renovate their flats has done its job L
Since I was not well for the past few days I ended up doing cross stitch after a long time which doesn’t require much thinking/planning …

I’ve used aida fabric and stranded cotton threads, attached the floral border to a Turkish towel.

Happy stitching!
