I am Bhavani. I am interested in all kinds of needlework be it lace making or embroidery, ethnic or contemporary.
I am especially interested in the common links among the various ethnic embroideries of the world.
For example Spanish Blackwork and an Ethnic embroidery Kasuti of Karnataka (India) share the same basic principles and they are both reversible.
Aremenian Embroidery and another ethnic embroidery of India - Kutchwork of Gujarat both predominantly use the Maltese cross.
I decided to create this blog so I can interact with all you needlework lovers out there.
