Its been a long time since I stitched something.I am slowly returning to my routine after a hectic cleaning work of my house.I stitched for my grand daughter for her Birthday.The material is a shirting material.Though it looks pretty because of the sheen,it puckered here and there and It was annoying.I have to file my nails too :(
Anyway I finished it and I am not that much satisfied with the outcome.

Kundan tops

I finished the Kundan work and embroidery for the Pattu Pavadai Tops. Thinking of doing a strip of work for the sleeve. The remaining squares will be filled once I finish the stitching.And here it is.......

Waiting for your comments and any suggestions are most welcome.

Chicken scratch

Honestly speaking, only after seeing Lakshmi's blog I got to know about this type of embroidery.I was really inspired by this simple method of using squares. After browsing the net to know more about this I found out that we can do it with polka dots too. Though this is not Gingham squares, I thought I will try out in this and I bought the matching thread. This is just a sample (I usually do one to get the hang of it) and I am happy with the outcome. I have not yet decided the design.This is for a frock for my grand daughter and I am still pondering over the idea.May be a border for the lower part and a simple design for the yolk part.
