Flowers in the garden
Mrs. Yano was quite pleased with the kimono quilt and hung it up in her entryway for all to see. It will be nice to see it there when I vist her every few days.
We've had rain for the past couple days and though Tetsu planted flowers for me in the garden on Sunday this is the first day that the sun was out to take pictures. I'm sure the newly planted flowers were happy with the rain!
Yesterday, when visiting Helen over at Honey Bunch Quilting I realized I have a talent that I had forgotten to mention. I can sew kneeling! She was talking about someone who could sew standing up but for nearly 30 years, until last September when I made a sewing room, I have sewn in a kneeling position with my knee controlling the foot pedal! Japanese rooms have tatami mats and low tables so that was the easiest way for me to spread out and sew. I'm not sure if other Japanese women can sew this way, but many of my Japanese friends were amazed that I could this so it may be a unique talent! How about any other Japanese sewers out there?
And thank you Rose Marie and Mrs. Goodneedle for the instructions on saving a post! I can do it! Now to get to all those past postings!
