Happy Saturday everyone!

Did you guess what the mystery embroidery was in my last post? Here is another little teaser in case you didn’t. I bet you know now. Scroll down for the big reveal!


Here it is in all its glory Smile.


Every time I look at it I find another embroidery style or beads that I’d missed before.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend Smile.

  1. Oh that is very lovely Avis. I have a nice appliquéd elephant bed cover that came from India but it’s not as sumptuous as that.

    • That sounds lovely too 🙂 My daughter was blessed by an elephant. It touched her on the forehead with its trunk. She said it was like being bopped by a very large soft cushion LOL. I love elephants!

    Wow, Avis this is amazing! I’m thinking how much imagination it needs to create all the details and to plan how it will look elephant. Have a great weekend! x Teje

    • I know a lot of these elephant embroideries are made at home by the ladies of the household. Who knows whether this one was made by one or many people. I can’t stop looking at it. Happy weekend to you too Teje 🙂

  3. I would never have guessed an elephant!! I knew it had to be a wall hanging. Too much embellishment for a garment.

    • I know the Indian people love elephants which is why I was wondering about the religious aspect before. You were quite right about the wall hanging. It is very heavy 🙂
