Alright, I really am influenced by the culture of Japan. I am always looking at the Geisha with awe. I did both of these in just plain cross-stitch, but really tried to show how intricate the kimono can be, as well as the intricate hair designs. for each design it took me only 2 and 1/2 days from start to finish.

This first one is my River Maiden Geisha, with different shades of blue and some red thrown in for a contrast of color. This was done in 14 count Aida.

This second one is my Plum Blossom Geisha, with the different shades of purple and some silver for the contrasting color. This was done on 18 count Aida.

"Hey, can you hear that?"

"Hear what?"

"The Felt."

"The felt? Really?"

"Yeah, it whispers to me."

I know this is an old post, but I noticed there are no comments and I think you did a great job on these!

I told you: I only wrote that poem to test my printer!
