Madhubani on Ikea paper shade

Ikea paper shade was lying around from long time without being used. So this time, I thought would make it little more colorful and hang it inside during Diwali(Indian festival of lights).
Here it is ..



Chitrakala parishat- annual fair

Just like every year, this time also we had the fair in chitrakala parishat which showcases various types of art and textiles from different states of India. It is always pleasure to visit them. Here are some glimpses...






Diwali diyas

This time with kids I tried to decorate the existing terracotta diyas. I had tons of paint left over :)
Thought it would be good time for kids as well.




Here are how they look in the process...

TAST12- Arrowhead

Next is Arrowhead. Same with this stitch too, though it seems simple, never tried to attempt it.

TAST 12- portugese border stitch

This week it is portugese border stitch. I have used the same kadai kamal thread, Also I attempted in regular anchor thread. Here are the pictures.


TAST 46 - Magic chain

This time it is magic chain. Though it is simple, I havent used or did the stitch before.

TAST 12- week 44,45-closed based needle woven picot

This is also my first attempt in this stitch. I used the kadai kamal thread. Both the open and closed based needle woven picot is present. For leaf I used the open base, and for the petals used the closed based.
