So here it is - my Japanese embroidery phase 4 piece finished. I seem to be taking 2 years to finish each piece of Japanese embroidery or bead embroidery at the moment. I was warned there was a lot of work in this design but I still went ahead and did it. After doing the endless gold circles, I no longer have any fear of going around corners in goldwork or plunging gold threads. Next up is the cords design for phase 5. I enjoy the rhythm of cords, so I have been looking forward to Himotaba. It will be nice to work with more than 2 colours as well!
