Last Thursday night there was an usual tea ceremony lesson. I wear Yukata dress with Hakama trouser again. The temperature suddenly went down this week. Autumn comes. I should wear usual Kimono dress next time. Here is a scroll calligraphy lesson. This one means we have to feel a tea with ear and eye and heart.
I made a dragonfly pattern Shibori as a September motif. One of my towel with small and red dragonfly patterns that I transfered them on the plain fabric and made Shibori work. It was a lot of work. When I saw made up one,I felt patterns were too small and less attractive. It is very sad this one is failed case.
