Miyamoto Musashi Killing a Giant Nue - Utagawa Kuniyoshi KUN001 pattern info
Lorraine Wiener, Rancho Palos Verdes, California
18-count needlepoint canvas with 2 strands, continental stitch
December 25, 2014 “Thank you very much for creating the difficult pattern. I am an addict when it comes to needlework and crave difficult work. At last I found a challenge. The material that I am using is regular 18 count needlepoint canvas with plain ordinary DMC floss. Unfortunately for me; the person who cut the piece of material for me at the store, gave me a 1/2" margin on each side. I may have to cut off some of the picture. We shall see.”
February 14, 2017 “I have been working two years so far on the Miyamoto Musashi Killing a Giant Nue pattern through my cancer (melanoma) surgery and treatment. As you can see, I have added several colors, changed some stitches and have tried to make it my individual creation. I figure I have at least a year to go on it.”
September 3, 2017 “Two years, nine months to complete Miyamoto Musashi Killing a Giant Nue by Utagawa Kuniyoshi. I have a habit of not completely following directions because I get bored easily. So I added many different colors and thread textures, added stitches and changed the pattern. Originally it had Mr. Kuniyoshi's cartouches on top and bottom. I eliminated them because I figured it was what he had to say, not me. During this project I worked full time as a teacher/librarian at an inner city school, combated a recurrence of Melanoma in my lymph glands, surgery, nearly dying from the immunotherapy administered to me, placed my mother in assisted living then a nursing home and now memory care, cleaned her home and sold it. When the cancer returned I cried. Not because of the return of the cancer but because I worried that I would never complete this project. I am very proud of my completed project.”
