The Alphabet Club - B

(For the full story on what this is, check out The Alphabet Club.)

This month, my “B” word is the Japanese noun Bara, which means rose. The town I live in is famous for its rose garden and the rose is the town’s symbol.  When we first came to Japan, I pulled out this blackwork piece that I had started when I was in the US.  It didn’t take long to finish it, but I have yet to do something with it.  Any ideas?  Maybe a bag or a wall hanging?  I don’t know.

 

Check back on the first Saturday of next month for my “C” word.  You can read about the words of the other participants here.
