Back to Needlepoint

The kimono for Fiona is now knocking on.

 The red back ground is all done and the gold cuffs etc.  Love how padded they look with the simple use of satin stitch.  The same thread is then used for the cloud couching.
 The face of the crane is done in Patina.  This is one of my least favourite threads but I do like the look.
Here the same Patina is working well to give the damp look of the waves.  Decided to follow the advice of a fellow ANG member (Joanne) and use simple stitches for this piece.
