TAST–2012 Butterfly Chain Stitch

This weeks TAST is Butterfly Chain Stitch, a beautiful decorative stitch.. I learned this stitch from Sarah’s hand embroidery tutorials.  See, here I ll show u my application of this stitch,

well I am very much fond of fabindia kurthas, simple and elegant, but most of it has low neck, which is very uncomfortable for me. I simply tried this beautiful stitch on the neck part, it gives a look of a simple motif at the neck part and at the same time my problem is also solved…


the other one, my favouuuuuuurite , gift from my dear Rajani Chechi…( my sis)

Again a trial…this time feather …:-)

Yes, I told u na peacock related works are my long cherished wishes, this time I worked on a peacock feather on my Unni’ s (my son) kurtha. My Amma and my lovely sisters ( Rajani Chechi and Santhi Midun ) bought me some good threads, and other embroidery accessories, many thanks to them..Smile

But …. whenever I finish a work, I get a feeling that something is missing. I wont get a full satisfaction….

Here it is .. tell me what u feel…..



the snaps are not clear I think, I have to improve my photographic skills as well…(??), actually my Saj ( my husband) used to help me , but nowadays he is really really busy….

Well, the owner is all satisfied with the work, very eager to wear it to playschool.

aahh, one more thing I want to request my co bloggers, why dual word verification for comments ??? its too tedious please avoid that if possible, turn on the comment moderation. While reading blog posts of many of my favorite bloggers, I feel like commenting, but frankly am too lazy to type that two complicated words, so I leave the post silently.

happy stitching..
