3 weeks ago,I made a Shibori shawl 74cmx163cm with a design of 4 bamboos and a sparrow. I thought it needs little more crowded patterns. This time I made a shawl with 5 trees and 2 birds. I like it very much. It is Japanese designed and looks POP and being able to proof a value of handwork. 2 Kanji letters are Soukou which is my tea master's name. This is a Christmas present for her.

Last Sunday after Kyudo training I dropped by Meijo park near Nagoya castle. There was Ikebana Japanese flower arrangement event. I walked around few minutes and I felt the winter.
