Embroidered Neck Design---Progress

Do you remember this one? I kept this project aside due to shortage of threads. Now as I have the threads ready, I have decided to start it again. I have made just a little progress. I have stitched some leaves in the design and am going to stitch the big pink flower on the right side.

I have five UFOs as of now---this neck design, embroidery on two sarees, a pillow cover, and a doily. I hope to finish all these soon.

Free Hand Embroidery Pattern --- Rose With Leaves

Here is a free hand embroidery pattern. You can use it on whatever project you do. You can rotate the design and use it as a corner motif on handkerchiefs. You can outline the design as in red work or fill it with L&S stitch or any other stitch of your choice.

Embroidered Reversible Bag

I would like to share the images of the bag I embroidered a few weeks ago. I made it into a reversible bag and gifted it to a little girl. She was so happy to have received it. You can find the how-to-sew tutorial on my sewing blog.

 When you turn it inside out, it will look like this.

 Here is the close-up of the embroidery.

Embroidery Pattern Book Give-Away Winner!

I am glad to announce the winner of the embroidery pattern book give-away.

It is Happygirl of All Things Pretty.

This time I used the random number selector to select the winner. I didn't count the usual lovely comments from other readers, repeats in comments, and the comment I made myself.

Congratulations Happygirl! I hope you will love this book. Please send your address to my e-mail id

Thanks to everyone for showing such a great enthusiasm to participate in this give-away.  I was delighted to read about your favorite types of embroidery.  I wish to learn some of them which I do not know.

I will post my own patterns at least one a month. So keep reading my blog!
