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.

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.
