I've been very productive since Tuesday afternoon. As some of you know, I'm taking a Sociology of Aging course at UBCO. My team did a presentation on the youth culture of the 1960s Monday night, and I decided to celebrate the end of that assignment by doing something completely different--getting back to what I love to do, and that's to sew.
But of course, I do have a deadline for this stole--I hope to deliver it to Kimiko in a couple of weeks when I next visit my folks in Vancouver.
Judging by what I've accomplished here, I fully expect to meet that deadline.
One of the kimonos that Kimiko provided had gold embroidered cranes at the shoulders at center back.
I plan to incorporate the large crane at the centre back of the stole.
And another smaller crane is pieced into the lower edge.
