Sal kantha - tara booti,dots,curlicues and stem

I have finished the dots near the crown leaf with kantha filling stitch using 2 strands of black Anchor stranded cotton floss.
                                                    


I have completed the small flowers above the bud with 'tara booti' using 2 strands of purple floss shd # 112.

To stitch 'tara booti' follow the instructions below:                                         
                         
Step 1: Bring the needle and thread up through the center of the motif, go down at the end of one spoke.                                       
 Step 2: Come up again at the center and go down at the end of the next spoke.                                         
 Repeat steps 1 and 2 until all the spokes are stitched.

                                         
I have also stitched the curlicues at the bottom with kantha stitches using 2 strands of black floss and the stem with kantha stitches using 2 strands of green floss shd #269.

See y'all next Wednesday ..

P.S. Thank y'all again for your wishes and am feeling a lot better now and hope I will be able show some new stuff now that am okay.

Happy stitching!
Anita

Hi Anitha,

Love the tara booties. They are so neat. I have done the last week's SAL and bit of this week's too.
Also can you pls post a closeup of the stacked kantha filling stitches used in the design. Bcoz in the stitch tutorial, there is no outline, but in the design, it looks like there is an outline.

Thanks for the great effort.
Sangheetha.

@ Sangheetha - Yes,I will post a close-up.The stacked kantha stitch doesn't have to have an outline but in this pattern I felt it looks better with an outline.I've given the details in that lesson..the instructions are just below the first image.
