i shut my eyes in order to see

I shut my eyes in order to see.
— Paul Gauguin (1848–1903)

I love the ribbed kiku sitich (for example, no. 104), and decided to see what might happen if I layered it with traditional kiku — I think it looks pretty stunning! A new favorite.

Thread wrap in medium silver gray; S8 division #8 perle. Embroidery in matching gray, light yellow and very light green. The quote by Paul Gauguin is in the bell box along with 23 brass rings. Circumference: 10.25 inches / 26 cm; diameter: 3.26 inches / 8.27 cm. Completed 24 April 2012 (no. 113).

Sold to benefit
