Welcome to my new space of embroidery..
Hey Lakshmi, I have tried my hand with kutch work doing motifs on kurta and saree pallu. I wanted a suggestion from you. When you work these long row of border, how do you split the work? Like do have a count as to these many stitches you work at a time? Or do you lay down the initial frame for the stitch for the complete row and then begin interlacing? I use anchor thread. If we use silk threads how many strands do you recommend ?
I will work base first for complete design and then interlace them..till now i didn't work continuous saree border..if I work i have to think about this..:)
Thank you! That was helpful. Did you mean to say that in the second picture you laid down the frame work for the full line first and then interlaced them?
yes base for the 2 parallel lines first.this is continuously done..then base for the perpendicular lines..then interlaced themm..hope you get it..
your comments means a lot to me
