Chikan Embroidery lessons
I am taking a class on Chikan Embroidery which is an Indian stitching technique. I am taking the class through Anita at artisticfingers.blogspot.in . These pictures show my progress on the first 3 lessons. It is very much like shadow work. You can't really see the detail of the thread color, but it is a beautiful variegated thread with blue, blue-green and purple colors. I am wondering if my stitches are too small. I liked it with the small stitches. (-; We are doing this as a group on Stitchmap so we can help each other out.
