Feathered chain Stitch

It is feathered chain stitch this time for kurthi worked on semi crepe material.
I have used 4 strands of silk thread in this project. though it is bit difficult to work with 4 strands of silk thread happy note that I don't need to work stem stitch.
I always like to avoid stem stitch ..
You can see one more project with feathered chain stitch worked earlier here..

Mogga Kuttu: A combination of Fly stitch and daisy stitch

This is my 5th project with the mogga kuttu which is a combination of fly and lazy daisy  stitch. You can find my earlier projects worked with this stitch on a saree blouse, kurthi, salwar and a saree.
I have selected the same design which was worked couple of years back; as the dress was given away. Though I have a full book of neck designs with this stitch i couldn't make new as it takes lot of time.

Material: semi crepe
thread: silk threads
stich for neckline: basket stitch..for the first time I have used baasket stitch and I loved it..did you too?

Actual colour of the dress material is quite  different from the pictures. In real it is nice double shaded blue colour.

Balloon Work: kurthi

Balloon work is nothing but long and short stitch done on balloon shapes. Usually done with 2 different shades of threads. There are many design books available in the market for balloon work.
I did this work on fine quality cotton material. The threads and the fabric colours  slightly vary from the actual colours.
You can see there are 2 incomplete flowers in the neck part. I thought the neck will be too small. If the tailor can make suitable neck pattern I will complete them.
I like this design very much. I did the same work on same design many years back; may be more than 8 years back to gift someone. This is also as a gift to someone..:). Planning to do one more with the same..
At present I am working on a kancheepuram silk saree with kutch designs.
Daughter doing good. I am going to stay with her in PG for a week. No cooking , no house chores. So I will get lot of time to do embroidery.
