... how does your garden grow?
With silver bells
Silver obi with hand embroidered cords and tassel
and cocckle shells,
silver obi with woven chrysanthemum
and pretty 'mades' all in a row.
orange obi with sagara nui (knots)
Well, I know it doesn't really match the nursery rhyme, but that tassel reminded me of a bell and I couldn't resist. These three obi are recent purchases from Ichiroya, I bought them intending to use the undecorated portions of the silk for my own embroidery, when they arrived the embroidery and weaving was so lovely I had to share.
