Yei Interpretation - first pictures of border

After much deliberation, I selected the border from my first sketches for this piece.  It is simple and yet relates well to the stitching.

I'm not quite sure how I will do the corners yet.  And, as always, the cutting and wrapping will be done later.
I may also do an edging around the whole thing so that I can cut it out.  What do you think of that idea?
It probably isn't going to be something that I actually want to lay down but I don't necessarily want to have it be a 'must' to hang.

Yei Interpretation

Congratulations to Felix Baumgartner on a fantastically exciting and record breaking jump!

 I wanted to get these pictures posted before Mom and Dad meet Sue and Steve. That sort of sounds like a movie title but it's not.  It's an actual event and I am sure there will be lots to talk about with Susan's latest accomplishments, awards and shows.  But maybe they will all have time to look at my blog and see my progress.

The basic stitching is now done on my Yeis.

I absolutely love them.  I love their individuality and their similarities.

I love the stitching and the whole concept.

I will now start working on the border.  The beading is last, of course.  So stay tuned and thanks for looking!

Yei Interpretation progress

All six of the Yei are now on the piece. I am working on the hardanger dresses now.  It's a fairly large piece. I haven't decided what kind of border it will have yet but it's still a long way from being done so I guess I don't have to make that decision right away.

Yei Interpretation Progress

I wanted to share my progress on Yei Interpretation.  I love my yeis.  In total, there will be six of them.  There are differences and similarities and it is true, the spirit of the yeis seems to really be growing with the piece.

I did some of the detailing on the first yei as far as the dress goes.  I really think it looks neat.
I still haven't decided how I am going to bring the white necks out but I'm working on it.

And if you were wondering, of course they are color coordinated!  Even a Yei wants to look good!
