Falling Stars Done

The stitching is done!

I used half-hitched .8 gold metallic and satin stitched for the glow spots.

I have the material for a soft scroll, and this site Japanese scrolls gave me ideas on how to assemble it as a scroll. The wikipedia site Kakemono showed me something I didn't know before - that the top section (Ten)  should be longer than the bottom section (Chi). From the picture it looks that the Chi is 2/3 the length of the Ten. I wonder how precise the proportion needs to be. Hmmm, more googling needed.


  1. You seem to have completed this quite quickly. It is a lovely design and you have stitched it beautifully.

  2. Thank you! I'm sure this is just a fluke - it is very dangerous (cost-wise) to whip through JE quickly. I have 3 pieces in the queue now - should last me a few years...
