Birthday Present

I made a birthday present for Marj over the weekend, and gave it to her last night, so I can share it here today. It is a kiku (Chrysanthemum) in rust/brown shades, stitched with vineyard silks.

The two sides are different. This side has 4 4-point stars interlaced through each other. It gives a very intricate look and I always love the accent color peeking through the stitching.

This side has the same accent color peeking through, but it is 2 8-point stars layered over each other, and is not nearly as intricate. The green of the obi is a little bit darker than the center green.

I love stitching with the vineyard silk, but more from the feel of the fiber than from the look.
