This is my new project with kutch work for a top. It took a  lot of time  to complete not only because the silk thread easily get tangled but also many a times I went wrong with basic rule (under over) of kutch work especially with the bigger design..relief at last..
Material: Pure Cotton
Stitch: all kutch work
Threads: 4 strands of silk thread

Chemanthi Flowers(daisy stitch variation): Salwar

This is one more type of chemanthi stitch formed using daisy stitch. I fondly call it as Leela's chemanthi stitch. Leela whom i met in indusladies community in the year 2008 developed this beautiful stitch when I posted my variation of chemanthi stitch there. She is also the first person who developed new version of anklet stitch.
How nice it would be if like minded people at one place sharing and learning the new ideas!!

Material: Cotton
Stitches: variation of daisy stitch(chemanthi flowers) for flowers, feather stitch for leaves and stem stitch for stems
Threads: 2 strands of silk thread
