Here is my last project, it took me a bit of time to complete it... Organdi is a difficult material to stitch on, very thin and fragile.

But I love the brightness of the threads  Grin

Are the tails entirely filled with French Knots?   Shocked

Thanks, it's very bold, but I guess it what makes it Indian too.
My friends are surprised that I can stitch such colors when I always wear black clothes Smiley

I love it! Beautiful design and wonderful colors. I'm pretty new to embroidery - is the orange outline around the tail done in chain stitch? I love the way that looks. I admire your patience in completing such a difficult-looking project!

Beautiful!  I love the colours.  The french knots give it a great texture, and the beads add a nice shimmer.
