Oh Mifune, how I love thee..

Let me count the ways:
I love you as a ronin
I love you as a detective
I love you as a samurai lord
I love your bushy eye brows
I love your hair when it disheveled
I love your hair when it's slick and smooth
I love your deep voice
I love the way you crinkle your nose in disgust
I love the wisdom in your eyes

So, I hope your spirit will be with me as I embark on my latest embroidery project. I hope it does you justice. If I can not do a good job, may I commit seppuku with my never-used knitting needles!

Once again I'm going pattern free. Instead I drew directly onto my fabric with a fabric pencil while looking at this photo:

 I hope this ends well. O_o

I just discovered your blog, and I love it! I am also a Toshiro Mifune/Akira Kurosawa fan, and that Yojimbo embroidery is gonna be NICE!
