In-between all the rain showers this week, my irises have started to bloom:
Which ties in nicely to my blogging theme this week: springtime kimonos. I thought I'd share another one with you....Can you guess which one?? TA DA -- It's my IRIS KIMONO of course:
Here's an up-close look at the different patterns used in this design, plus the irises along side:
All of my kimonos are stitched on 24 ct. Congres Cloth (apprx: 9" x 9"). When a store owner asked if they could also be stitched on 18 ct canvas, I said I'd stitch one up and see how it looked. Here's the same IRIS KIMONO stitched on 18 ct canvas (10" x 12" and equally lovely) in a different color combo:
Anyway, I hope this bouquet of irises - real and stitched - brightens up your Friday!
