This piece is based on the Japanese sashiko tradition of stitching. 'Ajirozashi' or 'threaded stitch' involves weaving the stitching side to side, based on a running stitch grid.
I have adapted it in this instance with an addiational variation on the cross stitch.
White cotton thread hand-stitched on dark blue Irish linen.
Frame: 150mm x 200mm x 30mm
Finish: Timber frame finish.
