I'm not sure where this would go
but if its not supposed to be here
delete it!
:]

So I haven't been on here forever
I went to India for summer break
and got back about a week ago
to be piled with homework
anyway

they have beautiful needlework there
amazing
and my grandma taught me some different styles there



I hope you can see clearly in this picture
My camera died last year
so I use this ancient digital camera
with a broken screen
:]

They used mirrors, which is that big square
and they use jewels
and other stuff
that I don't want to bore you with
if you want to know
let me know!

much loveee

Wicked coolness... Seriously... It's the Cultural Anthropologist in me that digs work from other cultures and countries... You are one lucky person to have gotten the hands on in another country with embroidery.  More please!  =)

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

IT IS BEAUTIFUL! I would love to learn so much more about it and see more! I think we would all eat up another way to do needlework! Smiley
