Oriental woodblocks by Hiroshige are one of my very favorites to interpret in threads. This is the latest thread interpretation titled Minowa, Kanasugi at Mikawashima from his series One Hundred Famous Views of Edo. Just to emphasize I use no machine and no kits, this is done by hand. The hardest thing for me is to sketch it onto the cloth. It took over 8 months to finish.
