I am Back!

with 11 comments

I am taking a short break from painting but that doesn’t mean I am doing nothing. I have been spending time on needlecraft – my other creative indulgence- and once I started that I just couldn’t put it down. So the painting is at the back burner for the time being.  I have finished off a cross stitch project I had kept aside for a long time and then completed a table topper finished in kasuti embroidery. Kasuti embroidery is an ethnic embroidery from Karnataka, a state in south of India. I designed the overall layout of the motifs. A couple of them are popular motifs used in Kasuti.
