Chickenkari embroidery

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.

This is a new stitch for me. First I was confused on how to wrap the straight stitches but after some trials I have learnt the technique.

TAST 2012 18th week - Crossed buttonhole stitch

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.

Thank you.
