Chikan Embroidery, Lesson 7

When I started lesson 7 I wasn't loving it.  I kept at it though and the more I did the Overcast Stitch Variation (Balda), the easier it got and it didn't turn out as bad as I thought in the beginning it might.


The second stitch was the Satin Stitch Variation (Gol murri).  It is the little drops extending off the slightly larger upside down teardrop - upper left side in the image immediately below.




One more lesson :-(  This stitch along (SAE) has been quite enjoyable.  I love learning new things.  I think it keeps the creative juices alive, don't you?  Below is my progress so far.  I've just finished my TAST for the week and I'm going over to see if Anita has added lesson 8 yet.  Next, I need to decide what I am going to do with the finished piece.  Ideas?

It might be pretty to hang somewhere so the light shines through it.

Looking lovely! I love the color - it looks so delicate. I have not progressed on mine, but I will go back to it as soon as I get some more obligations out of the way. I have really enjoyed learning Chikan Embroidery too.

Very lovely! I really think it has to be hung so that light will come through it, but not in direct sunlight so the fabric doesn't get weakened.
