This hand- embroidery was crafted in 1995, while awaiting 12th standard boards exams result.

The left sample (white in color) is hand- embroidered by me. The right sample (off- white in color) was hand- embroidered by mom. I may have been 7- 8 years of age. Mom had embroidered for my pillow cover.

Note the uncanny resemblance between both the samples- made by me and mom. I had not used that Pillow Cover for reference. It was well tucked in with the old clothes.
