Chikan embroidery Stitch A Long completed

I have thoroughly enjoyed stitching along with Anita while she coached many ladies to embroider Chikan work, with a well planned tutorial.

Base leaves = shadow-work edge and drops are worked with Double Back stitch.  The leaf centres are Running stitch which are then Overcast.

The Base is Double Backstitch.    The stem – Laced Running.    Curved stems – chain.

The two ovate leaves are also Double Backstitched

  Leaves at top – Running stitch centres and Blanket stitch edges.

Vine leaves are Straight Stitch Variation.    Stems – Whipped Back stitch

Heart – Double Running border and Drops and Wave Stitch for the centre.

  Top leaves – Slanted Satin stitch

Below that are 3 Eyelet stitch flowers and to the right a flower worked with Roman stitch.

Stem stitched long stem.

To the left, the large double teardrop is worked with two rows of Chain stitch and the centre

has 2 Detached Chains….one on top of the other.

The outer spokes are Satin stitched.

I am very pleased I had the chance to join in and complete the work.  Thank you Anita.
