I like chicken work embroidery very much. I tried these motifs on my hanky. For the first time I think it is not bad but should practice more. I want to do some more chicken work on a saree or my daughter's kameez.
1. For week 20 tast I have tried some variations in first two rows.
2. Sun flower bullion stitch petals , pollens with french knots, stem - chevron and German knotted button hole & back stitch.
3. Bullion roses
4. Mirror work with petals bullion and button hole stitch daisy.
Crossed Buttonhole stitch is new to me. I tried some stitches on matty cloth and then on plain cloth. I tried with small beads, it looks pretty and it looks nice for borders. I used this stitch as neckline border on my daughter's salwar top with mirror work embroidery.
