Doily Anamika

Though it's very hot here in Chennai I took the doily 'Anamika' from the UFO/WIP basket and made a little progress.
                   
                                              

Finished cutting the threads and weaving the inner square and moved on to the next element of the design as of now. A little progress is better than no progress,isn't it?

I've formed a whatsApp group for embroidery/needlework addicts living in Chennai and posting little studio scoop,needle work tips,my workshop info etc there as often as possible.It's a small group as of now but I hope it'll grow very soon.

Have a great weekend!

Diya

I've been busy teaching this blackwork biscornu for the past few weeks.                    

It's going to be a busy summer because of the online version of this class which has started this week.
What are you stitching/planning to start right now?

Have a great weekend!

sewing

A quick post to say hello and show a couple of things that I made.            

                   

It's too hot here around 38c and it's difficult to keep up with everyday chores.

Happy sewing!
