Both large and small
When I design, it's usually something on a much smaller scale than that of "Nellie's Imari," the gorgeous pillow canvas designed by Judy Harper. But I love Imari designs so much, I adapted two of the pieces in my porcelain collection to create this "Egg for All Seasons."
My "Imari" egg was stitched in basketweave using DMC floss, with the outer navy border done in Petite Very Velvet. It incorporates colors of which I'm very fond-- navy, peach and jade green--in a series of mirror-image motifs.
