Asian Nights- Cobi's Block

Okay, so with my hospital visit and so on, I didn't get as much done as I'd hoped on my stitch commitments to others. I finally finished one of my round robin commitments this week. Cobi chose the theme of India, and India is orange to her, so the block is orange.

I did two motifs and one large bead line. They're visible in this close up. The circular motif is supposed to be a mandala circle, or prayer maze. The one up top is a basic shaped I found from a picture of a street drawing in Delhi. I punched it up with a lot of "bling" metallics. The bead trail is supposed to symbolize how India juxtaposes so many divergent things but they all come out as a harmonious (for the most part) whole.
