The Alphabet Club - N

The letter N catches me up with the rest of the group.  My Japanese word with the letter N is  Nihon, the word meaning "Japan". I will show some Japanese stitching techniques and a little Japanese stitching kit that I received as a gift, then stitched.  


This is a needlebook I finished.  

This is a bag I started and want to finish!

Sashiko - I've done a few sashiko table runners and such and have a few other projects ready to go.

Temari - I have two Temari that I've started but I think I need some help getting back to work on them.

This simple temari is from a class I took with Barbara Suess at the Japan Center at North Carolina State University in 2006.

Japanese stitching kit - this kit was a birthday gift from some Japanese friends, who know how much I like to stitch!  Since finishing it, it has hung in my apartment so I can think of them every time I look at it.

Linking up with Chiara at the Grey Tail.  Check out the posts of other Alphabet Club members!
