Yee hah! It's Friday.... and as it is Friday 17th April, this must be posting Day 15 of the "Blogging from A to Z April 2015 Challenge".
Today is "O" - "Oriental Stitching"
Oriental: something pertaining to the Orient....
"Jewels of the Orient" is a design that I have had sitting in my Joan Elliott box for quite some time. I also have a number of Joan's "Geisha" designs that one day I would love to stitch, but as they are all quite large I decided not to start one for my "O" post. Instead I decided to start the Kimono which is part of the "Jewels of the Orient" triptych. This design is in a small D&C Joan Elliott book that came as a free gift with one of my UK magazines years ago (sorry I can't remember which one or when....). The design was originally printed in Joan's "Oriental Odyssey" book.
So say hello to my new start!
Besides the kimono in the set of 3, there are are two fans which I will stitch as I think they all look delightful together.
That's it for today's post... I thought I had better get it done and dusted early as I have to have a hydro-dilation injection in my "frozen" left shoulder today, and after that injection I am not if I will feel like typing.... fingers crossed I can stitch tonight as I think "Prancer" needs to come out of the WIP basket!
Don't forget this weekend is IHSW (International Hermit and Stitch Weekend). Joysze is taking sign ups now, so head over to Joysze's blog, say hi and sign up for a weekend of indulging in our favourite past time!
Til then.... Happy Stitching and Happy Blogging!
