One Finished Project And Five UFOs

Hi Friends! Sorry I have been missing in action for the past three months. I was away on a long vacation. I was mostly on travel that I was not able to do anything embroidery or sewing related, and didn't find time to update my blog or check all your blogs.

After returning from vacation, when I planned to start my projects again, I first checked how many unfinished projects I have. There were six in total. I decided that before starting any new project, I must finish all these. I finished one out of these six.

Finished Project: Cushion cover with embroidered flowers


1. Embroidered Doily:

2. Kameez neck design:

3. Pillow cover with embroidered roses:

4. Embroidery on a silk sari:

5. Embroidery on a sari:

All the UFOs except the last one involve long and short embroidery. This is one of the reasons for the delay. Also, I could not spend more time on embroidery for the past one year due to various reasons. Now, as I have got more time to focus on embroidery and sewing, I have determined to complete these projects that I have been keeping on hold for a long time. I will update you on the progress of these projects.

I am starting now to visit all your blogs. Have a lovely Monday!

Welcome back! All your stitching projects are gorgeous. I just took a class this past weekend on learning long/short embroidery. It's beautiful work and I hope I get the hang of it as I struggle with my stitches being at first too close together and then too far apart. Need lots of practice :)
