I had not said lately that this Sal is by Anita here and is almost finished. Thanks Anita for the chance to learn kantha.
The hand traced version is on left of the printed one.
This week we filled the triangular border around the edges with Kantha stitches, filled dots with kantha filling and flower centre.
It was suggested we might like to fill the bottom of the ‘eye’ with more Dharneer sheesh.
Oops! I meant to fill both but you can see the difference between them. I’ll complete the other one before the final post.
I said I would do a third and use colour so here it is. For the 3rd embroidery I used Freezer paper to transfer the design. I followed Queenie’sinstructions and it worked very well.
Any suggestion is welcome.
