Stitched with thick, unmercerised cotton (pinks, with bands of mauve). The difference between the two? The distance from the centre of each kiku flower: one is 2/3 and the other is 1/2 the distance. The flowers were stitched first and the bands added afterwards; I’m not sure if there is a “correct” order or whether the Japanese prefer to stitch the bands first.
Same surface pattern, but a brighter, “warm” colour palette, stitched in perle cotton #5.
