Butterfly Panel

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!

Another great piece well executed. Finished is pretty impressive and in the context of everything else you do two years is not to be sneezed at either.

It's so pretty! The gold circles are mesmerizing to look at. They look like cells under a microscope.
