Eastern Indian Embroidery





This was designed and hand stitched by Charity McAllister ( me )
It has also been featured on Mr. X-stitch.


It took me approximately  six months to finish. It all started with a book from my local library.I was studying Eastern Indian Fiber Art and decided I needed to own one of these handmade masterpieces. Since I am a 'do-it-myself ' kind of gal, I gathered all the supplies I thought I would need and began my journey into the Eastern Indian embroidery
experience.

All the pictures on this piece are hand drawn and open to interpretation.
