Kyoto - Shosei-en Garden

This was another place I had visited previously. It was nice to see it in autumn colors this time. The entry fee is 500 yen and a color booklet is included in the admission.

There were only two other people in the garden part of the time while I was there. It was a wonderful place to visit.

I think visiting this list from time to time is helpful.  It reminds me what I have that is still unfinished (and also how many things are still unfinished). Maybe I can challenge myself to put at least a few stitching in each project and try to finish more than I start. Until next year...
