Since the weather was unpredictable I only managed to shoot a few pieces, hopefully we will plan another one soon.
I love our new bird embroidery pillows. These embroideries have been inspired from 16th - 17th Century Mughal Paintings that have been documented in the British Library and some are on display in the gallery. The base is cotton linen with cotton satin backs. The one above is a beautiful woodpecker and you will find Bulbul in the Embroidered section of our shop here:
I will keep adding to the bird collection and perhaps make a total of 5 different birds, what do you think?
We wanted to keep it fairly casual and natural so the backdrop of her shed worked out just fine for our cushions.
Some new cotton stitch resist pillow covers are also in store now available in a beautiful charcoal, indigo and madder.
I wrote a Guest Blog some time back while I was setting up my domestic shop www.anekdesigns.com. The Blogs I was writing on my new shop were not getting published here and so after much investigation ;) I have managed to now link And Another to my online shop www.anekdesigns.com!
The blog was on one of my favourite Indian Textiles, Ikat and was published on blog 'Peacocks in the Rain.' Read it here.
I wrote this post for my dear friend Ila's Blog Peacocks in the Rain and it is a beautiful blog dedicated to Indian Design, Crafts and Products! You will love it, I promise!
