Last weekend I took an online Zoom class
to learn how to make a hand stitched Siddi quilt.
You can see my very first stitches in this photo
along with my first Fula, a flower embellishment
that is traditionally placed at each corner.
I can only hand stitch for short periods of time
so this is definitely a SLOW stitching project.
But it is so relaxing and engaging.
This is the same corner shown in the first photo
with the first Tikli (the pink patch)
nearly stitched in placed.
(Sujata told us that a Tikli is similar to
a sequin that is used for decoration)
And this is where I stopped yesterday.
LOTS more stitching ahead on this small project.

There's plenty more going on in my studios...
you can read about all that on my blog
And I do have my AHIQ Positive Thinking project
at quilt top stage - I last posted about it HERE.
