Embroidery block ……

Since last few days I have been embroidering a bit,  and slowly and steadily I managed to finish one block.   My plan is to make three block and make it into a wall hanging.  So here’s my first one…..



I have used simple backstitch on the pattern, and it  is done on an even weave fabric, which my very dear friend Nima gave me, to cross stitch.  Though I love cross stitch, I don’t  know I find it difficult to concentrate on the count and after some time I feel my head is spinning.   So I thought that I would stick to simple embroidery.

Please do send in your comments for which I wait eagerly.   Till my next  post its  Bye!! from Preeta.

Pintuck pillows……….

Another post after a long time, but I am taking it easy and doing whenever I find time from my busy schedule.    And this time it is the most quick  and easy home decor I always love making.

During our vacation this time in India , I happened to see a tunic  and  loved the simple pintuck stitches done on it.   Of course I picked up the tunic for myself, and decided to look out for a tutorial on how to do it, once I return back.

Today when I was browsing the net I found a great tutorial, and immediately  started working on it.  And this is what I made…..


I  used  a  pure silk  fabric  to make this cushion  since it looks rich with this simple pattern also. 

A close look at my pintuck stitches….


This tutorial is from   sew neat pintuck stitches.    It was a simple and step by step tutorial and I loved making it.   I am planning to make two more like this one.  But I couldn’t wait to blog as soon as I managed to finish one.
