I have a limited amount of space – my studio is also my office. I don’t do well with clutter (it makes me nervous) so I try to limit myself to one project at a time.
I decided to make something for my front hall. My husband is Japanese (from Hawaii) and I wanted something to honor his heritage, but something that wouldn’t take too long to make. The kimono is based on a pattern in “Sensational Sashiko” by Sharon Pederson.
The Japanese kanji is our last name “Nuibe” which means “sewing clan” in Japanese. They are fused but not yet quilted.
