Kazuko Aoki "Rose is a rose" Re-framed

Hi, I re-framed my Kazuko Aoki's "Rose is a rose" (=薔薇はバラ色?).
Mum's wasn't re-framed, just as it was, but when I found this rosy fabric at craft shop, I couldn't resist to buy it and this idea just came into my mind!


Is it a bit fussy?
I wanted it to be a bit more prettier, so I made it into like this.
When I saw mum's, it's also simple and beautiful, so I just sew it easily backside to whenever I can change mind and make into the original.
I took photos without glass, so it seems a bit weak, but if added glass it's beautiful IRL.

When I took this photo, I've got three mosquito bites, oh no!
Japan is a very humid country, so there are so many mosquitoes...
I often hear that people are stitching just in front of the lake, but no mosquito, etc...
How about your country???
My PC is funny recently, I'm scared if I should buy another new one again???
Now I can't use mouse, actually usb port etc... and I lost some true type fonts, so I can't see any words when I leave you a comment... or when I edit my HTML...
I should ask my husband to send me fonts.





Take care and have a lovely weekend!
Happy Stitching!





Design : from Book "バラと暮らす”(=Bara to Kurasu)

Yuko,
Your new way of finishing this pretty chart is really lovely. The rosy material suits it beautifully.

What a shame sitting outside is spoiled by mosquitoes. We don't have so many here in England but in Cyprus where it is also very hot and humid, they are a horrible nuisance. Making a repellent from natural oils is a great idea. I used to:

Good luck. Hugs Angela :>)

Your framed piece is wonderful!

We have a lot of mosquitoes here, too. They have been especially bad this year because we have had so much rain.

The framing really sets off your lovely stitching!!!

This is very pretty Yuko! The rose fabric is perfect with your stitching, and this is such a creative idea.

We have mosquitoes too, but not many, many.

Yuko,
The rose is lovely! I just don't
know how you thought of such an
unusual framing technique! You
are very creative...
Hope you are feeling much better.

What lovely framing! It perfectly suits such a pretty design.

Colleen said...

Sorry...I liked the original one better. IMHO, this doesn't make the stitched work stand out. There's too many flowers in the background that competes with the beautiful stitching. :( That's just my taste, though.

Tammy said...

I think it's very pretty and original Yuko!

Wendy said...

your work, and framing looks really lovely, what an original idea !
here in The Netherlands not so much musquito's, but a real wasp-problem.
you can sit outside, no problem, but not have anything to eat or drink, then a wasp will come and bring his whole family !

better tell your husband excactly what you need for your computer, or there is no telling what you will get !
