use the experience wisely
Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.
— Auguste Rodin (1848–1917)
A traditional kiku chrysanthemum for the new year. Garnet is the January birthstone so I worked garnet into the palette.
Thread wrap in slate gray; S16 division in #8 DMC perle; embroidery in two shades of garnet red, two shades of silver gray, and two shades of light golden brown. The quote above by Auguste Rodin is in the bell box along with 12 brass rings (for upcoming 2012). Circumference: 10.75 inches / 27.2 cm; diameter: 3.42 inches / 8.65 cm. Completed 26 December 2011 (no. 081).
Sold to benefit Kiva.org.
