I've missed being here.
My special project is complete and my life is returning to some semblance of normalcy. I hate when I can't share what I'm working on whether it be for a gift or something else. Oh well, they all eventually show up here even if it's not in real time.
Today I'm rushing off to return to Japanese embroidery instruction...
This piece is called Eternal Grace and the operative word for me is "Eternal"!! I think I've resurrected this piece more times than is spiritually feasible.
It's never too late if you start today.
And so we meet again, Grace and I.
I started studying Japanese embroidery 20 years ago when I lived in Japan.
I was the only gaijin (foreigner) in my class.
All the Japanese women brought their frames to class wrapped in furoshiki.
I didn't have one so they made one for me...
And so, I remember them fondly today while I fear I've forgotten much of the japanese embroidery that I once knew.
See you after class...
