Spring is springing up ( finally ) in Vancouver. We had a brilliant, you could almost call it warm weekend. Which I spent a good portion of inside the studio. I have been doing some research and as a result have come up with a name for the cherry blossom quilt I have been working ( slowly) on.
Hanami literally translated (or so I have been told) means "flower watching" and is the Japanese traditional custom of enjoying the beauty of flowers, "flower" in this case almost always means cherry blossoms. So it seemed a natural to call this Hanami.
Here's a little detail so you can see what I'm up to ... just a bit more drawing to go and then I can quilt.
PS- just when I was feeling smug about spring.... sigh.
