Tiger Sun Dreams
Here are a few more photos of the hand stitched piece I have nearly completed. I've run out of the colour of embroidery thread I need and I wasn't about to brave the stores on Boxing Day! 2010 is the year of the tiger and I used a piece of prayer flag which had the outlines of a tiger on it as an approximate guide to stitch one. I say 'approximate' because it's so small it was hard to tell what was what. Then yesterday when I was listening to a book, I nodded off for a paragraph or so and found myself dreaming of stitching triangular rays just inside the velvet circle. This morning I added them in - I guess this planet is the sun, and the tiger essence will be the fire, as otherwise, it's pretty dark.
