I have made progress on the border section of my Maharani's Fish Pond opus.
I folded the edges in and created 4 rows of running stitch to seal them. I then worked the wavy borders, and set about sketching in some motifs that could represent the garden border of the fishpond. I checked out photographs of kantha work to create the kind of motifs that might be used.
The inner border is blue on green; the outer is green on blue. In this outer section I am working on the notion of the garden at the edge of the pond.
It is giving me hours and hours of pleasure.
The next step is filling in the background of this outer layer.
