Yesterday morning I received a parcel from Jenni in Australia. I knew what it was immediately, see "blogger bearing gifts" and opened the parcel in great anticipation. This is what I found:
The kimono was much more lovely than I expected. Jenni's photo on her blog (which is actually a better photo than mine for showing the whole kimono) led me to expect a turquoise and cream or grey fabric but it is actually much more silver in colour, really lovely.
I recently bought this book in my quest to learn more about Japan and Japanese culture.
Elm Creek Quilts novels, far more suitable for a hot summer's day.
