Patterns of the Orient


This is a glorious, though challenging, piece from Tony Minieri.  It's a study in Chinese, Japanese and Korean textiles.  Each area represents a different pattern used in contemporary and ancient fabrics.  I think I'm enjoying it ... some days it's way over my head.

I saw Tony Minieri's original model years ago. In person it is stunning. Photos don't do it justice. Stitching his designs is an advanced course in Needlepoint. I think you'll be a better stitcher once you finish.
