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.
