Thanks to all who "opened their doors" when I Knocked .It was a pleasure hearing from you after so long.
Some days back I happened to see this tutorial to crochet a Loop Stitch . The inspiration for the pictures that you see below came from that video.Instead of crocheting loops, I embroidered them.
Since I have not seen this stitch before , I have not named it. Or may be it exists , and in case it does and you have seen it somewhere, do let me know . I'll re-title this post with the stitch name. :)
By the way, my embroidered rose survived the washing machine wash cycle not once, but twice !! Little Meghna is using it as her napkin during lunch in school. In fact , when she took it to school for the first time there were requests from her friends to make something similar for them :)
There a few gaps visible after the "bath". But those can be corrected. Still ,no more washing machine, only hand wash from now on - I've tortured her enough.
And thus ends my first "real" embroidery post after a long time. I hope you enjoyed visiting and viewing.
Love, luck and sunshine,
