Once the kit arrived, I dropped everything and got working on it. It was so easy to do, and now that it's stitched, need to get this, and the other two rozashi projects, made into hanging ornaments.
I did learn something while stitching this piece--Margaret's instructions on which direction to stitch initially confused me until I finally figured out she uses the economic method instead of the "wrap" method for the bargello like stitches--duh (hand hitting head--LOL). This makes for half stitches on the back, but does save a lot of thread. A good thing considering how expensive the silk threads are.
I recenty found a You Tube video of Margaret talking about rozashi and showcasing many of her beautiful projects. Saw two or three I'd like to tackle.
Here's the completed Rozashi East Meets West Ornament.
