Imari Dragon Fan

Dear fellow stitchers,

Isn’t it wonderful to finish a project? At long last the Imari Dragon Fan Ornament that is the companion piece to the Imari Love Birds is complete. I beaded a handle and will have it finished as a hanging ornament, with a long gold tassel on the bottom.

My friend Peggy suggested Coronet Braid. I always have a lot of gold on hand, and chose the bright gold 162B. I think it looks great.

 

I believe the canvas in the fiori line at Dream House Ventures has gold behind the dragon, rather than white, which is a variation I made for myself. I will look forward to hanging it on my tree next year, or maybe it will be a daily companion as the Imari Love Bird paperweight is.

Happy stitching!

Joan
