Chikankari class: Part 4

Folks, I’m still alive, just terribly busy with my dissertation. Anyway! I have made some progress on Anita’s chikankari class and wanted to show you. Isn’t it pretty? I’m a little behind but I’m almost done with the outlining. I’m loving the colors of the variegated threads. Here’s a closeup.

And here is the back of the work – you can see the herringbone that produces the shadow effect on the front of the fabric.

    I have to say your chikankari is really beautiful. And with the ones that I have purchased over the years, your work is so much better. I’m not as far along as you are, moving takes so much time, and now my son is doing his final exams for the year. So hopefully I will get back on track soon.
