I made this for Round 7 of the Embroidery Hoopla. I decided to do a hoop using negative space and this is what I came up with.



I liked the idea of a geisha out watching fireworks. I outlined the silhouette in backstitch as a guide. Then I did running stitches to make the fireworks.

Here's a close-up. Something my camera rarely let's me do, even if it is a bit blurry.Tongue
