little progress...

a new weaving sampler in progress...                

made some pleating swatches..planning to turn these into a block or a pillow                   

added some tiny seed stitches in the stylized horse project..                   

mystery x stitch progress...                   
I had stopped teaching art full time four years back and after thinking a lot about my friend's suggestion (who comes to my studio for open classes)I've now decided to offer 1-2 hours open embroidery classes once a week from mid June – mid August. Hope everything goes well during those 2 months..

Happy stitching!

more weaving and embroidery....

It's good to be back with some new projects to share :-)
My weaving experiments are going great and I tried some spinning as well which was totally fun..             
As of now me and my friend are trying to pick up the nuances of warping a loom..

My mother wanted to do a bit of recycling old clothes..            
so we are weaving a mat out of an old saree..

I've started a new freestyle embroidery project which will be suitable for a beginner level class..may be I'll open my studio doors for beginners this summer..                   

I've planned to use shades of red with little yellow ochre and black and a wide variety of stitches..Hope my stylized horse will look handsome :-(

A new cross stitch project..It's an anchor DIY kit which I'd bought 8 years back..too bad I didn't finish it,right?                 
It's a kind of floral wreath/garland pattern but I don't know how this will turn out because there is no color photograph in the kit,only black and white chart is included..so it's going to be a kind of mystery project..

Happy stitching!
