Grand children

I wanted to post this for a  long time now and here are my cute grand children.She is wearing the frock I stitched.The shirt my grandson is wearing is the one I bought from India.The cloth as I told you is been with me for a long time and as soon as my daughter saw that she wanted a frock for Tara and wanted to take a portrait in that.Nice Idea isn't it?

Kundan tops

I finally sat down to do some work which I love most :).I stitched the silk skirt and wanted to do a kundan work top for that.All the materials I brought it from India.I did not plan any design as such and just started with a simple chain stitch and then did the blanket stitch to make squares for the stones to fit in.I have not yet finished the neck and I am planning to do a pendant design too for this.Once I finish the entire tops I will post the  it again.Till then......

Semi circleTops

My daughter bought this tops here in the US and the idea was so good I wanted to share it with everybody.The vertical lines marked is to show where it is stitched for the sides and the horizontal one is for the hip.This is done all around and we can put elastic or a silk ribbon or string to tie it in the front.The material is chiffon and was really beautiful. Try and see.:)
