Japanese Country Dolls, Boro and Old Indigo

This week I took some of collection of Japanese bits and pieces into work 
for our new window display entitled "Japanese Country Folk and Boro"

It is already attracting a lot of interest which is cool.

The tiny dolls are sitting on the rungs of an old wooden ladder.

This is a Boro Triptych that I made a year or so ago. It uses all old recycled indigo 
fabrics that I also collected in Japan.

My Japanese Boro Journal was made in class at work, also a year or two ago.

These pin cushions were also collected in Japan - all old indigo fabric with 
a subtle amount of sashiko stitching. They are sitting on an old rag rug
purchased at a flea market in Nagoya.

Linen Bunnies

I have had so much fun leading up to Easter.
We got a stunning new pattern in and I got addicted to making Bunnies.

Between Cindy and I we had seventeen Bunnies on display in our Easter Window.

We have made up kitsets of some and tonight I am just finishing off another one.

Talk about a new addiction!

Back to some quilts tomorrow.
