...thinking of Japan...

Ever since the earthquake and devastating tsunami hit Japan...

...my thoughts have been with that land and her people.


Aside from donating to one of the many relief causes...

...I wanted to do something myself...

...to make my thoughts more........visible...





Tiny ceramic pot with spring buds...and the kanji for "hope".


Thoughts also spread into textiles....





...sashiko stitching on indigo...

...the top of a "long cloth" that will also use the piece of "mokume" shibori.

Your "visible thoughts" give hope. I love the stitched indigo.

I see a hopeful sign in the growing will to give up some of their politeness. Japanese don't complain -- they should start doing so and start a rebellion.
Your memorial is beautiful. May the buds sprout!
