Opening the parcel

It was exciting to open the parcel even though I had watched Mr Singh pack it up. We started our journey with a return visit to Lucknow where we went back to see Mamta Varma and the young women who do wonderful chikankari – the most exquisite hand embroidery.  Here’s a detail of the embroidery worked on silk.

  1. What fantastic embroidery, I love the look of whitework, but don’t think I would do it, although I had to do a sample for my C&G course.
