A new idea is born...

Germination

And,

.......growth.

Just wanted to see how the structure would look once translated to cloth.Nope,it is not applique, as it would seem from the cut out, but something else... I'll share more about it once the idea evolves.
The initial plan is to embroider the basic structure of the tree with simple running stitch. That may take a while since the tree is not very small (actually it almost covers the surface of a Queen size bed :) )

Well, as long as there is determination and enthusiasm , no idea is impractical :) How it'll end up is another matter :)

Till next post,
Love,luck and sunshine,
Deepa

You are brave to share the idea before it happens! - I rarely end up doing what I draw on paper, there are so many twists and turns! I also use newspaper for my patterns, always easy to find and I'm glad to be recycling! Sometimes though it can be distracting:))

Deepa...Good Luck with your new enterprise(such a large one) I know it will be out of this world when done.Choosing colors, stitches etc. It take a lot of courage and patience. My very best wishes on this work.

Hi Deepa,

On a lazy afternoon when i din't have much work to do in office, i googled for my favorite poem Nakshi Kanthar Math. As you have done a post on nakshi kantha embroidery, your blog showed up in the searched list. and would you believe if i say i went through each post of yours. every single of them...from 1st to last. because i am always facinated towards the magic created by threads and needles. My mother is great at these- a talent she inherited from my grandmother. i never devoted time to it else i am sure i would have been good at them too. few days back only i was thinking of doing some cross-stich stuffs and in beetween finding out your blog was nothing less than a miracle. i guess it's God's way to tell me to start doing stuffs i like to do. i even thought of writting you a mail which i didn't 'coz of shortage of time. I guess it explains why i followed your blog. :) i dont follow blogs randomly even when people come and follow mine until and unless i don't find something to be followed in them without even expecting them to follow mine.

Do i need to say i appreciate you and your blog. :) You appreciate creativity and that makes everything beautiful here in this blog. :) and i would always come back to it.

hope you don't mind such a long comment of mine. i somehow can't stop myself from expressing whenever there is something i fall in love with. :)

all the best! like all your creations I am sure this too would be a stunner and an inspiration.

Di Ellis said...

Exciting, I work in a similar fashion bits of cut out newspaper everywhere. Also I do all my stitching (pretty much) in a random running stitch using machine cotton. I was thinking of Indian chicken stitch .Good Luck Di

Di Ellis said...
