"There was quite some stuff left over from Tahiti main design - and I dabbled around with it, which lead to a dream-like design (as I find) of a Moonrise at some South Seas shore.
A Vahine is dancing to some music at the beach, Palm Tree silhouettes are visible against the night skies. The first stars are visible and twinkle (yes, crystals!) and in the foreground you can see some of the gorgeous shells washed up to the sands. In one half that girl has even collected a few wonderfully shimmering Pearls (sew on real ones or use the Special Stitches...) The tropical flowers spend their perfumes, darkened by the nightfall they fit into the overall sombre scene. OK, DH nearly fell back over because of the "romance" in this piece- but alas! He is (only) a man...
Few silks only, hardly any beads, a handfull of crystals and the rest DMC and your work will make this design to a dream on the wall....Backstitching of the main outlines will be done with gold metallic thread to add some golden Moonlight ....You can even go further and sew on a few genuine shells... and add a drop of Plumeria Perfume"

"The Nymphs' Garden Mandala --- In a dark forest at sunrise you see the 4 Nymps dancing in the veils of the foggy dusts...Water Nymph -- Tree Nymph -- Fern Nymph --Leaf Nymph. They are mere silhouettes, no faces - just a hint of something -- a fairytale, nothing tangible!
Surrounded by huge leafs and tiny grasses, Waterlilies and buds, bare trees with strange "body" shapes (are they Nymphs too)? The colors are soft and dusky - muted and veiled. Lots of Special Stitches and as well lots of beads make the sparkling dew drops come alive."

The anemone is erroneously missing portions of the blue backstitching line. The entire anemone should be backstitched.
