I have been stitching back into it and using couched sari yarn for the heavier lines. I wanted to use black sari yarn but had none. It FINALLY came today so I will use it sparingly as well as using the dark colored heavy weight sari yarn already on the piece.
You can actually see the twisted fabric on the top piece of yarn
For those who don't know, sari yarn is yarn twisted from strips of sari (India dress) scrapes. It comes in various thicknesses, multi and solid colors. If you are lucky, you can "un-twist" the yarn for small snippets of cloth to add to a piece.
Black sari yarn - very thin
Multi-colored sari yarn both thick (upper left) and thin (bottom)
