Hi friends,

I hope everyone is fine. We have shifted to a new place and that's why a long hiatus from blogging. To refresh up myself I have started a new quick project ((I hope it would be a quick one because it does not include L&S stitch). This would be a small embroidery design on a bag which I am making as a gift. The fabric I am using is a kind of silk cotton. I traced a simple pattern and started the embroidery yesterday. Here are the pictures.
This is what I have done so far.
The stitches I am using are buttonhole stitch for the leaves, fly stitch for the flowers, and French knots for the flower centers, and I am using variegated floss for the flowers.
Note: I am still waiting for the 25th follower on my blog and am ready to announce the next give-away. It's a pattern book again. Watch out for the give-away!
My hearty thanks to all my followers and visitors for keeping my blog still alive on the blogosphere.
