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.

Hi... thank u purniji....thanks for the welcome.... will try to upoad more stuff
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..

Wow Manjula, fantastic, really its looking very beautifull, i would like to make, can u please tell me how to start. awaiting for ur reply..

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
