is teaching this embroidery which combines Shadow work, Pulled Threads and Surface embroidery
The tear-drops are worked with Double Back stitch or by the Indian name – Bakhya/Bakhiya or Bakhia
There is also Stem stitch or – Rahet and Chain stitch – Janjira.
Not only am I learning how to do these stitches but also a few new words.
I have wanted to try Shadow work before but never started. I like it and hope to improve my stitches.
I have wanted to try Pulled threads but was too nervous to begin… fingers crossed that I can do it.
The work is on pale green muslin using white DMC thread.
