Today I finished this bag.
It's for my mother. She turns 60 years old in Christmas.
We Japanese celebrate age 60 especially(It's called Kanreki). We are having a short trip in the end of this month and I want to give her this bag.
I patchworked kinds of fabrics, cotton, linen and wool. Some are from my friends.
I also put some pieces of leather. The hand stitch on leather took the longest time.
Anyway, I worked on it for three days... I'm content with the result.
It's getting cold in Japan these days.
So we cannot see Bo-chan usually because he is in his house.
But yesterday, we found his eyes from this tiny gap.
An old lady talked to him like us too. He cannot stay outside, but he can enjoy talking with people through this gap (* v *)!
After that, we saw beautiful sunset.
It's a beautiful day as always (* v *)!!!!!

Bo-chan is wise to stay inside out of the cold. It has been 32deg celsius here in Brisbane/Australia the last 2 days. Bring on the cold I say.
