Chain stitch and Sequins

Its been quite a long gap since I posted something.Last month I was out of town for 10 days and after coming back we  again left to Karnataka temple tour organised by Karnataka tourism.That was for 5 days and after coming back I was really tired by the journey and was out of sync for a week.So I couldn't do any stitching.I had a lot to stitch and because of that I was not able to concentrate in any embroidery.That lasted for another week and I am now doing embroidery for a black top to break the monotony.This is done with chain stitch and sequins.Unlike stem stitch,which is my favorite, I thought for a change to do this in chain stitch.It looks simple, but with the silk thread and that too in a single strand it needs a lot of patience to do the whole part in chain stitch.Any way I am happy with the output and here is the posting.I did a free hand drawing and have to do two more frames to finish the embroidery for bottom part of the top.This forms a border for the tops.

Its been a long time since I posted something .I am yet to finish the short top in which I am doing" net work".I am doing embroidery for the sleeves and will finish it soon.I did  a few jewellery, which I find very interesting and rewarding too.The basic materials are available in various colours to match  the clothes you have.I tried a few  and wanted to share with all of you, the same.
