IX. FLORA AND FAUNA BEANBAG


Double strand Persian wool on 12 mesh canvas, 2 x 3 3/4 x 11/16"
Continental stitch in all four directions
Appproximately 1,512 stitches, 1983 and 1989







This small bean bag was inspired by the colors and flora patterns on a Japanese, Lustre Ware tea set which my family had when I was a child.


Started in Seattle in 1983, it was again taken up and completed, also in Seattle, in 1989 by adding animal figures similar to the flora patterns against a coffered background.
