Uguisu Reflects on Ume -- Finished!



Completed, finished, pasted, and done.  Thank you all for your wonderful comments and support.  I have a tremendous amount of gratitude to the Stitchin Fingers Ning group for inspiring me to take a step in designing my first Japanese Embroidery styled piece.  I am planning on posting the design process behind URU on Monday/Tuesday.

Floating petals -- in the end I took one petal out and added two in.  A net gain of 1.  My local stitching support group was huge help in calming my concerns that the piece was beginning to look like it had chicken pox and was able to preserve many of my finger nails.  THANK you!!

  1. Congratulations, Christa.

    Uguisu Reflects On Ume is a triumph both in design and exicution.

    Both of your final two pictures could stand alone as a design but they work together splendidly and the balance between them is spot on.

    Truely beautiful. Well done.
