Work in progress: embroidery from Kutch

A long way to go
She showed us a piece she'd just begun. Eventually the whole sheet of material would be covered by this stitched embroidery, inlaid with small shards of mirror and perhaps other ornamentation like tassels and small bells. I actually found this early stage at least as appealing as the finished works.
