 This is called "machi work"- a type of hand embroidery.

Neck design using beads, sequins and fabric paint.

I love embroidery & dress designing.  But often I make delays of my work. Perhaps I am a little lazy or I have a large scope of activity that sometimes I take so much time to choose which work I should do first and start to finish my half done works. I observe people always praise my work but till date I am not totally satisfied with my work. I always want some changes or uniqueness in my work.  It is a good sign, cos then only people improves. Now people can see these photos only bcos of my digital camera. Few years earlier i dont had D camera or the technology was not so improved that it was quite complicated to keep records or photos. So I feel so sorry that i have no photos of my earlier work.
