As a note, I started this project while I was in Asia, and I once pulled it out while I was seated near a bunch of Japanese tourists. Their faces all lit up with excitement (and some bewilderment) when they saw what I was doing...I'm sure it was a bit strange to see an American girl working on a traditional Japanese craft!
In other news, my Janome sewing machine is traveling as well, this time to the shop to get a tune-up. I've been using "Singee, the brave little Singer" Featherweight, in the meantime! He was a birthday gift from my husband, and I love how he hums along while I sew. Maybe I'll keep the Janome in the closet for a while when it returns, so I can continue using this little wonder!
