Yesterday I had a major sewing day. I had even told Tetsu that I really needed this weekend to sew (we had spent most of last weekend working) and he mistakenly assumed that I had some deadline for the Bazaar quilt. No deadline for this project but I really wanted to sew today. I felt guilty when he asked if I'd gotten much done today and did I need to spend more time on it, in which case he would wash the dishes. Just me playing around in the sewing room! I washed the dishes.
So this is what I did. Ok. My Japanese blog readers. Can you read what these say? I certainly hope so because I'm not going to get any closer than this. I don't really need a "Japanese" quilt but I'm trying to make a quilt that is all ME and this is pretty unplanned and unpredictable. I saw the characters on a website one time but instead of using the patterns there I just wonky cut and sewed. I had to keep using my Japanese character dictionary to make sure all the lines were pointing in the right direction.! I also tried making objects but I'm not completely satisfied with those yet. I'll have to practice a bit more before I show results here.
Not to keep you non-Japanese language readers in suspense. The block on the left is suppose to say "cat", and the one on the right hopefully says "dog". Japanese friends, do they pass inspection?
