This one is also for my stitching friends. Taken through glass, I have reflections in my pic, but if we look past the reflections, we can see some wonderful weaving patterns.

At first, I thought this was drawn thread work but a close look showed out the weaving. My passion is drawn work, and these weaving patterns are very similar to the needle weaving patterns used in drawn thread channels throughout Europe a few hundred years back. I wonder who influenced who?

This is a table runner, and was on display in the shrine at the Shurijo Castle on Okinawa, Japan.
