Let’s take a walk…

…down memory lane.  Since I haven’t taken a photo of my new pillow finish and since I don’t have any current ‘in progress’ photos, I thought I would take us back in time to the companion piece of the Kimono by Jinice I just finished in June. (see archives for photos).

I have five Kimono canvases from this designer and the one I’m about to show you was my first finish in counted needlepoint.  When I purchased the canvases, I picked different colorways for each. The first one I started was in aquas and blues…that’s the one I just finished in June.  The second one I started…a full back view…I finished first and gave as a gift to my mom.  The colorway for that one? Well, see for yourself:

The colors are less true in the second one, but it shows you how mom had it displayed in her home.  For now I have temporary custody of the Kimono, as she is off exploring London for three years with my brother and his family. 🙂

The fibers used include Kreinik Watercolors (Flame, I believe), Medici wool, Kreinik metallics (large variety) and beads.  There are many different stitches used and the metallic outlines are couched in place.

As with my second Kimono finshed this June, I had this one framed to image in a simple non fussy frame.

Just so you can see the two together, here is the side view Kimono (which I actually started first)

I do have photos of this framed somewhere…I think, but could I find them this morning. NOOOOOOO.

Next up in this series is the one on black canvas…a side view of 2 Kimono.  So stay tuned.

To Cindy:  I was confused too, but the deal for Farve is signed and sealed and delivered with $13 million dollars worth of love. Sigh…just think of the stash that would buy. But then again after the first sack, I might not be able to lift a needle….

It should be a fun season. 🙂

I am off to work shortly.  May you all have a blessed day.
