Life has been throwing its large rocks again this last week but it seems things have returned to normal. We had a lovely day yesterday as it was DS's birthday, he was 30 - how did that creep up? the years seem to have flown. We celebrated with family and friends with a lovely lunch at our local restaurant and a very enjoyable evening.
I was asked by Sheila, my new found fellow stitcher, what was Kantha embroidery so I thought I would put up a couple of pics. The basis of Kantha is a running stitch, rather like Sashico but usually using finer threads, especially silk. I love the rhythm of doing this kind of embroidery as you can get lost in its simplicity, the stitches seemed to flow and go where they want, they certainly did on this one as I just made it up as I went along. I incorporated the sheesha glass which gave it more interest.
