Sudden Realization: The Geisha Mystery

Ruth Schmuff knows just what I like—an elegant and haughty geisha!  This beautiful design from David Galchutt is named "Sudden Realization," and she will be the subject of Ruth's Winter 2019 mystery class.  Stay tuned!

The first lesson is out—and the geisha has a face!  Her under gown is gorgeous.

Ruth has a plan to handle the outlines.

And she uses thread layers and thicknesses to create interest.

Now the geisha has Big Hair! (and pretty sleeves)

The background is mostly in. I love the floating lanterns and the beads in the geisha's hair.

Flowers, flowers and more flowers!  This is the last lesson, so now I cannot wait to see this piece framed.
