Hand Embroidered Napkin with # Cross Stitch # Counted thread embroidery

Hand Embroidered Napkin 
with Cross Stitch 

    Cross stitch or Counted thread embroidery has its own beauty. I drew the tree shapes and filled out the design with cross stitch. The grained effect of cross stitch suits the texture of trees aptly. Using colours other than green also made a difference.

Hand Embroidered Napkin with # Kutch embroidery

Hand Embroidered Napkin  
with # Kutch embroidery
Kutch work originated in the state of Gujrat. It is a unique form of embroidery and is intricate. It is worked on a grid of crossed threads similar to the maltese cross. It is a bit time consuming but i enjoy this embroidery as one has to be very alert while working the thread through the grid. This embroidery helped me to increase my concentration
