Kutch work

This time I am working on bed spreads with kutch far now I have completed only one pillow cover. One more pillow cover and 2 bed spreads to be embroidered. Some how I am not interested in this project. May be because I am not happy with the yellow colour I used in this design. Tried many colours but none looks good. More over to poke on cotton material is not a easy job. while doing long and short stitch i have to push the needle which makes back of the needle pokes in to skin and the threads struck in that brittle skin. anyways hope I will complete this project within a month..
