Kasuthi and cross stitch: Kurthi

To match with my 23 years old cotton dupatta I have selected a matching cotton material and selected design similar to the prints on it. It takes long time to complete this simple project. Stitches are  easy but needs lot of concentration. so much  bored I was with it so that I couldn't  complete the motifs and neck line on this kurthi.
Stitches used are kasuthi, cross stitch, stem stitch, half anklet stitch and hungarian braided chain stitch. Threads used are anchor cotton thread.
