EMBROIDERING DESPERATION SHAWLS


This post is dedicated to my friend Jyotsana Singh who has been encourage me to post pictures of my embroidery.

It’s really quite simple. I buy a paisley shawl or stoll and then highlight the patterns already there with a running stitch. here are some pictures. When I first started doing this, inspired by the old jamawar shawls that were both woven and intricately embroidered, I called this shawl my DESPERATION SHAWL. It was after my retirement and I had vast stretches of not writing. this is what I did.
