Patch Work - Dancing Lady

Dear readers on this blog you have observed many patterns of patch work portraits done by my mom. Inspired by her beautiful work I have also thought of trying  patch work. I know that I can't match with her neatness in hand embroidery  but still attempted one of dancing lady pose of patch work and posting the same here.

Very simple stitches like filling buttonhole, herringbone, feather stitch, satin stitch, chain stitch and couched trellis stitch are used. Her saree is filled with random cross stitch and hairs are done with stem stitch filling.
 In my upcoming posts surely you will get tutorials of  all above mentioned stitches.
