Japanese Embroidery Phase 2-3 - Homework part 3

Over the weekend, I was determined to finish my peach cloud. I'm a little behind on other projects and made a commitment on a new project that has a deadline. So this became a priority. I didn't have a lot left of space left to cover but it's still at least 3-4 hours of work there.

I had to crack open a second reel of silk to finish, as it really eats up a lot of silk.

This cloud has the same temporary holding stitch as the purple cloud sayagata. It didn't take long to put in as I've already had practice having had to do it twice previously.

Here is my piece as it stands. It's now stowed away in it's case until our class in April. Four weeks left. I've been following another stitcher on Instagram as she finishes her piece, so I'm really looking forward to learning the different elements.

Since my homework is done, I will be splitting my time between finishing phase 1 and my new project. I've already started the new project but haven't had time to write a post. In the meantime you can follow along on my Instagram account here. You can also check out my un-boxing of the kit here. I've been playing around more with videos through Instagram stories. I'm hoping to do more of those in the future.


  1. Good to have it all finished and ready for the next stage..

  2. I know I say this every time, but it is just getting more beautiful! Is it more fun to hold the spool of silk in your hand or to stitch with it?

  3. Yay for finishing the big cloud! I can imagine it's been eating a lot of that delicious silk. I've seen your new porject on instagram and am looking forward to learning more about it!

  4. Lovely work. I'm enjoying seeing the progress on this design.
