Sunday Sampler of kimonos

It is always so interesting to see different interpretations of the same canvas.
Here is a picture and some close ups of the Wisteria kimono canvas that is a shop model. The flowers are all done in silk ribbon , adding dimension and elegance to the piece. The background is worked in silk and metallic.

Now here is the link to pictures of  the same piece Rose Cherry-Soleil is stitching.
  wisteria kimono
She is using beads and silk ribbons on the flowers and a lattice pattern background. 

Here are more pictures of some great kimonos in the shop.
All are  10 x 12 on 18 mesh . The first three can be finished with open arms to hang on a small black lacquer stand.  My favorite is the one with the lanterns. Just need more hours in the day for all the stitching I want to accomplish!
