a good poem
The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it.
— Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
A favorite variation on the traditional 16-petal kiku (chrysanthemum) design — leaving a gap between the first four rows and last three rows of the petals, allowing the thread wrap to show through, for a lacier effect.
Thread wrap in light driftwood brown (sort of silvery-gray); S16 division in #8 perle. Embroidery in navy blue and and three gradated shades of brown. The quote by Thomas is in the bell box along with 17 brass rings. Circumference: 11.125 inches / 27.5 cm; diameter: 3.54 inches / 8.75 cm. Completed 28 March 2012 (no. 106).
