    going away for a few days

    Hi everybody,

    I am off to a tropical island in Kyushu with my family.
    The funzoe kesa is almost finished and I will soon do Takuhatsu to collect oney for the Tsunami wearing it.
    I will resume my short talks on the kesa in a week time...Meanwhile, be well!

        Indeed Amelia, I have just finished a two weeks sewing retreat and almost finished the Funzoe kesa (6 to 8 hours of sewing a day...).
        Now, another kind of retreat.

            Your long hours and hard work sewing clearly shows through the beauty of this Okesa! What a wonderful practice! I love that the first time out in it will be to do Takuhatsu for victims of the earthquake.
            Have a fun and safe trip to Kyushu.

                        Taigu-oso;

                        Congratulations on near completion of your latest Kesa. Hope you are enjoying Kyushu vacation. What would be wonderful after you get back would be if we were to see a picture of you standing on a street doing takuhatsu while wearing this magnificent Kesa. Do you think others in Treeleaf would also like to see this?

                          That sounds like it would be a beautiful picture!

                            That is a BEAUTIFUL kesa.

                              So so nice to see you here,Doden.
                              It is just a funzoe. Just a few rags put together and sewn in a very clumsy way.
