Embroidery at STARBUCKS at night, Japanese Hishizashi

Usually it's difficult to stitch at night because kids want to play with me.

I went to a STARBUCKS in Yokohama, Minatomirai with my sewing tools last night.
It's the first time for me to leave kids at home with their dad.

I enjoyed the city lights and cafe time without kids.

Then I began to stitch not Kogin, but Hishizashi.

Hishizashi is similar to Kogin but they are different. Kogin is odd counting and vertical, Hishizashi is even counting and horizontal.

It's very interesting. I finished each part one by one.

It's important to keep beautiful the back side too.

At last, I finished it. It's beautiful!

Do you like Hishizashi too?
