I was born in Yokohama, Japan and have gone back a few times to visit. I also collect Japanese wood block prints and art. This image came across my feed when I was researching a virtual race that takes you to Mount Fuji and the surrounding area.
I was also very interested in trying my hand at landscape embroidery after seeing the beautiful ones done by @geekgirl…her Northern Lights embroidery were appealing and very much in a style I like.
Here is my first landscape piece with the image I used for inspiration:
And, a close up of the zillion of stabbing stiches you need to do one of these!
I used a piece of shibori fabric sent to me in a swap…it is sort of a fuzzy flannel, which I thought worked well with the style and kept me from having to fill in the entire hoop.
