Bullion Stitch: Saree Blouse

My camera is not yet fixed completely so posting this embroidery work late. This blouse is matching one for my saree for which I did embroidery work some time back with bullion stitch. Now only I did finish for the blouse with same stitch but with some other design.

Of late I am interested in making saree tassels. I did few but could not take the pictures as my camera is not working properly. 
In the below picture you can see one type of tassel making which is under process. It is yet to be stitched more and trimmed.

This is my first craft with ceramic powder. And I tried leaf bowl with it. To my surprise it came nicely without any trouble or mess. Painted it with fevicryl pearl metallic colours. One more is yet to be painted so Will post it tomorrow when completed.
Sorry for the poor picture quality.
These days I am making different tassels on the sarees. Since my camera is not yet repaired I couldn't  post them here..:(.  And also doing small amount of embroidery on saree blouses.

 I just love flowers. When we were children we cousins used to pick fresh flowers from our gardens and tie them and put in our long plaits.
I know few more methods of tying flowers, for that I need different flowers like kanakambaram, gundu mallige, chrysanthemums etc..when they are available I will show you more.
I put up some tutorials on different methods of tying flowers in youtube. You can learn from there..

Navar Work completed

At last I am able to finish navar work which I started some time back..
This embroidery is done to hide the stains on my old benaras saree.  Saree is having design except  on pleats part. So I did small motifs where there are stains and to match with I have  done big bunches.  Totally I did 3 big bunches and few leaves and flowers where there were stains. I did buttonhole stitch for leaves, satin stitch for small flowers, french knots in the center of the big flowers and stem stitch for stem stems. I do satin stitch with another method. will show you some day..
How do you like it!!?
