Hand embroidery on Pinky Pink saree

This one is my favorite among all the embroidery works which I did,
Probably I took three months to finished this saree - hand embroidery on two sides then pallu part... Happily said its my own design, didn't get it from anywhere...:-)
 I wove it with the use of maroon and green silk threads and copper colour jari thread, along with that did bead and stone work throughout the saree...

Handcrafted Old Picture

Below Gods photos were decorated my house entrance hall for so many years...might be the age of this pictures are about 35 to 40 years.
It impressed me because of the handwork on it...
jari lace, sequins were used to stitched on the picture.
The picture inside the frame was blurred and also smudged by rain water unexpectedly...but still now the handwork in the picture didn't get damaged or loosen after so many years..
Hats off to the creators...
