in the eye of the dragonfly

the distant mountains
are reflected in the eye
of the dragonfly
— Kobayashi Issa (1763–1827)

Like no. 40 and no. 45; I definitely feel more comfortable with this pattern and the execution. This time I did the obi first, then wrapped the bands over it, which worked well and I think is my preference of all three variations.

Dark blue thread wrap; embroidery in lilac, emerald green, medium silver blue, and silver perle. The haiku by Issa is in the bell box along with 11 brass rings. Circumference: 10.25 inches / 26 cm; diameter: 3.26 inches / 8.27 cm. Completed 15 November 2011 (no. 060).
