We had to rush my mom-in-law to hospital few days back. Her ill health is keeping me very busy but I try and squeeze out an hour or so to visit blogger world. Your blogs cheer me up and keep me going in these hard times. My mom-in-law i.e. mil too enquires about the latest work on the blogs. I am not doing much, will be finishing knitting muffler and am trying my hand on Brazilian embroidery. Not a big or planned project just trying out the stitches. In the meantime i thought of showing some embroidered stuff to my friends. This embroidery is not done my me.
My sis-in-law presented my husband this beautiful kantha embroidered kurta which i would like you to have a look at. The front panel is fully embroidered and not with just one design but different designs have been used to cover the front panel. I hope you will like it too.
This is the front panel.
I tried my best to take photographs of each design on this kurta which makes up front panel so you can have a good look at it.
Second one is my dress i.e. salwar kameez set worked in what is known as phool pati work which is from place called Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, a North Indian state.
Phool-Patti-ka-kam is a traditional work where patches of cloth (phool means flower & patti means leaf) are cut into motifs, usually floral, and stitched onto a background of organdie. This is much loved by the ladies of certain parts of Uttar Pradesh, particularly in the Rampur area, for their saris and dupattas.
Beautiful shadow work on salwar kameez. Material is organdy. I just love wearing them during summer months. They look and feel cool.
This was a dupatta gifted to me by my sis-in law which i modified into a kameez.
Following is done on georget material.
I would like to show you a beautifully embroidered saree which i got as a gift. I love the work on it. Border and pallu of saree is embroidered.
Following photograph is of Pallu.
Following is the border which is worked all over saree plus blouse too is embroidered.
Few of my hand embroidered stuff. Idea is to share good embroidery work with my blogger friends.
