Japanese Princess in United States

Princess Kako, granddaughter of Emperor Akihito and daughter of Prince Akishino, the Emperor’s second son, is spending a month living with an American family in Massachusetts.  This is the first solo trip abroad for the 18 year old princess, who is a freshman at Gakushuin University in Tokyo. During her visit to the US, she will also go on a sightseeing trip to Colorado, according to the Japan Times.

Sampler Pear II
Margaret sent me the chart and threads for Sampler Pear II a while back. I pulled out her gift and a piece of 28 count linen yesterday and was surprised at how quickly it stitched up. The charts for this pear and eleven others are available at Samplers and Santas blog. I’m not sure how I will finish this one – maybe as a Christmas ornament.  I might stitch one or two others before I decide.

You sure whipped this up quickly! It is an unusual sampler, very nice.

Looks very nice. As you say these are very quick but satisfying.
