My trip to Odisha finds a place in 1 Year of Stitches.

 20th March.2017. I was looking to add a motif which would mark my visit to Odisha. I picked Jaganath. He's special to Odisha. He's the only Indian god who is worshipped along with his older brother and sister. Most Gods and Godesses have a consort but not Jaganath
 30th March.2017.
The day was spent in airports. Flying from Bhubaneshwar to Chennai with a four hour wait in Hyderabad to catch a connecting flight. Time well spent working on the Jaganath motif.
31st March.2017. 
The Jagannath motif is complete.I embroidered the pupils of his eyes and the motif was complete.
30th March.2017
It was so hot in Chennai my brain seized functioning and I could only think of adding some cast on Stitch leaves.
