Bit of weaving..


Finally, a small piece of kantha embroidery also inspired by the picture of this lady who is making rice flour on a stone grinder. I kept the picture, which was printed on a packet of wheat flour I bought quite sometime ago. I wanted to do a painting of it, but I never got around to do it until recently. I did pencil colour drawing of it and, that gave me the idea to try this embroidery.
