SAL – Finito

Hi All,

Here is the finished version of the Kantha SAL Sampler.


Through this SAL, I have learnt many new stitches. My heartfelt thanks to Anita who has generously shared her knowledge on Kantha Embroidery.

My favorite stitching in the sampler is the Center Flower filled using Kantha Filling Stitches.


In the end, Anita has included diagonal kantha stitches. I tried the same and ended up with Satin Stitch filling. So removed the stitches and made kantha running stitches with inclination.


Stitches Used. I have linked them to the corresponding tutorials on Anita’s Blog. Pls click on the link to know how they are stitched.

Here is a mosaic on my progress during the SAL


This SAL was quite an experience. Since this is a Stitch Along, I must be on time for progress. I work in the day time so my craft time is limited and haphazard, so sometimes I was nervous that I could not either finish or could not take picture of the progress or sometimes failing to post when I have forgotten to transfer pictures from the phone.

But this SAL was not fast paced, it gave me enough time for stitching each part.
The tutorials were neat and explanatory. I’m glad that I took part in the SAL and finished this sampler.
Okie..See you all soon with another FO.

  1. I like your chosen colours and individual touches to the pattern. The larger use of black in the central flower is great; also the Tara booti at the bottom of the Dhaneer sheesh.
    You have created a beautiful embroidery.
    I agree Anita is a really good tutor and very generous with her time and sharing of lessons.

  2. You are always welcome dear! Congratulations on your finish Sangheetha! Your kantha looks beautiful and you’ve done a wonderful job. Lovely color choice and it’s great that you’ve changed a couple of things to personalize the design. It was a pleasure to look at your mosaic pics 🙂 Thanks a lot for your kind words,feedback and the links.
