I will be linking up over at https://timelessrituals.blogspot.com/ where you can see more goddesses from other bloggers.
I chose Tatsuta-hime as my third hand embroidery piece, I was trying to get the effect of winds blowing the fabric of her dress into autumn leaves. Tatsuta-Hime (pronounced tat-SUE-tah HEE-may) is a minor wind Goddess, It is said that each year Tatsuta-Hime, Goddess of dyeing and weaving, dyes silk yarn and weaves a beautiful multicolored tapestry of yellow, orange, russet, crimson and gold. She then incarnated Herself as wind and blew Her own work to shreds, the scattering cloth resembling the blowing leaves of autumn.
must have offerings to make
to gods on her way:
so the autumn leaves
scatter like fragments of cloth.
My Tatsuta-Hime is done on white cotton muslin fabric using DMC variegated embroidery floss for the leaves and dress, solid floss for skin and hair. The piece is completely hand embroidered.
I have also made progress on block seven of Hocuspocusville and I should have it completed in the next day or two. I am linking up at http://www.supermomnocape.com/2016/06/13/vintage-embroidery-monday-stitchery-link-party-62/ for this weeks linky party and I forgot to post my progress yesterday at Kathy's quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching since I was so busy stitching so I will do that today too. https://kathysquilts.blogspot.ca/2016/06/slow-sunday-stitching.html
