a day in paradise

April 27, 2016

the day starts here

up the ladder to my private room -luxury! a shower in the new bath house

after breakfast of French toast – we’re being spoiled

a walk up/down the mountain with the dogs

a wander around the house

looms tucked in corners everywhere

the outdoor dyeing centre

time to get to work, starting on our first hand stitched hanten

with the expert assistance from Yazaki Keiko, our kimono sewing sensei

still working at 9:15 with another hour to go 

this is a holiday?

thanks to everyone who has left a comment, they are much appreciated

I don’t have the time or energy to reply. šŸ˜…

    Thanks for the pictures – it maybe not a “holiday”, but it looks nourishing!
