Welcome to ikolam Ms.Manjula! Your first post looks absolutely gorgeous! I like the color combination you've chosen; black and tan with a hint of red here and there, with a few mirror dots. Lovely pair of peacocks! Thank you for sharing this piece with all of us. Smile

Very pretty to look at! Nice mirror work too!
Personally I would have put the elephants in the middle and the peacocks at the top and bottom. Sizewise, it would have been more elegant.

What a grand entry into ikolam Manjula, welcome aboard - lovely embroidery looks very very professional - only thing you should have put a black dot inside the white mirror for the eye of the peacocks, thereby giving more life to the birds... my personal opinion though..

u would need a meters black cloth.... use it diagnolly trace out any design that u wish.. give a border of chain stich (i have used orange here) and fill the inside with criss cross stich (i have used cream) better to use contrast shades for a good finish... use mirror work for the final finish the way u want and give it for framing.... takes sometime to finish but worth the pain
