Yes, I agree on keeping it, hope you decide on making more gods/godesses.And we'll wait for the pretty picture of all youre pretty embroidered deities, (YAY!!!).   By the way what kind of fabric you used for the embroidery?
The fabric I used was in my stash, I have yards of it that I must have bought for either curtains or belly dance costuming and never used.  I'm not entirely sure what it is, but it is a slubby texture and I think it is linen or has linen in it because of how it tends to wrinkle easily.  On the other hand it's kind of thick for linen, but it does have a nice drape to it so I really don't know, lol....I just liked the texture and color and figured it would be a nice change from plain old muslin.

I would love to do more gods/goddesses, I'll have to look up some more!  I'm in the middle of a new project already, so I'll have to start searching.  I've actually already done a mini Ganesh embroidery....and I have more designs that I might do of him too.  The fabric for Ganesh is your standard plain ol' quilting cotton fat quarter.  I like using different fabrics for stitching so I tend to look for subtle textures and prints to use for embroidery.



Thanks again for all the wonderful comments.  Smiley

I really love this style of free stitching. Your colour choices are perfect. You should be super proud of it

Wonderful!!
Jai Ma!
There is definitely a lack of Hindu needlework, and it is a great way of expressing love of god.
