Work In Progress Wednesday - Woven Bag Progress

Today is a national holiday in Japan, Labor Thanksgiving Day.  I thought it was for being thankful you have a job, but maybe not... 


Labor Thanksgiving Day is the modern name for the ritual of Harvest Festival (Niinamesai).  On this day, the Emperor makes the season's first offering of freshly harvested rice to the gods, then eats the rice himself.  


So, I have the day off from work and plan to spend the afternoon with my stitch group. Before I go, I'll show what I have done with the bag this week.

  6. I like these flowers and the texture you've added with the bullion stitches. It's interesting that Japan also has a day that is devoted to thanksgiving.
