Shi Sha or not to Shi Sha

just a few images of the piece of Shi Sha work i am studying.

i have fallen in love with the above stitch called Kutch work, based on foundation threads with other threads woven through.you could go on forever building shapes.
everything is so colourful, even when faded but i have played around with some of the photos!

i went a bit mad with this one.
i love the way some of the pieces are worked on printed textiles that bear no relation to the embroidery.
