Enchanting Geisha progress #10

IMG_1702

The work on her kimono seemed to be going so slowly, because at this point most of the work left to do on it consists of lots of small areas of certain colours. While I like the detail that gives, it got to be tedious, doing a few stitches then switching to a new area or a new colour, so I decided to take a bit of a break from that and start on the background.

Here you can see a little more of the sky behind her head (not much of it), and the start of the river and the hills behind her. These parts are done in half cross stitch, so they go quickly and don’t look as solid as the image of the geisha itself, which makes it look good for background colours. I’m enjoying the change of pace!

I will return to the main part of the image soon, though. Her half-finished face is starting to bother me. She looks like she’s just wearing a mask!

    Hey there Yuuna :) Thanks for leaving a comment. You’ve got a big piece going on here. I don’t think I could handle a piece like this :P May I know what you plan to do with it once it’s completed?

      Thanks for the comment!

      I think I’m going to frame it and hang it on the wall. My apartment doesn’t have enough pretty things decorating it yet!

    Wow, I haven’t checked in on this in a whiiile.
    You’ve done so much
    I haven’t worked on the samurai at all. :(

    Your geisha is looking absolutely stunning though. Very inspiring. Maybe I’ll pick up the samurai for a bit this weekend…

      I remember seeing what you had done of the samurai. I’m looking forward to seeing it when it’s all done!

    She’s going to be just gorgeous. What count are you working on? You know, come to think of it, I’m not sure if that’s calculated differently for us or not….

      Thank you!

      I’m using the 18-count Aida that came with the kit.
