It feels too warm for snow, but I guess the temperature can change fast enough.
The leaves are coming down quick. This is the pretty red tree at the train station that I recently posted a photo of – it’s almost bare now.
I was conflicted about stitching the eyes. The pattern shows little one stitch slants. I was concerned this was a stereotype and maybe derogatory. Ted pointed out that Japanese anime shows one stroke slant eyes, so I did as the pattern showed. I also did the silver zig zag on the lavender side and the couched silver around the edges of the kimono.
