woven in plum scent

Great moon
woven in plum scent,
all mine.
— Kobayashi Issa (1763–1827)

My tribute to the holidays!

Thread wrap in purple; S6 division, no guidelines. Embroidery in ten shades of violet, plum, purple, lavender, orchid, and metallic silver. The haiku by Issa is in the bell box along with brass rings that make a quiet traditional rattle. Circumference: 10.75 inches / 27.5 cm; diameter: 3.42 inches / 8.75 cm. Completed 22 December 2012 (no. 231).
