Oh, they're lovely! I have one book of Japanese embroidery and love it. Yours from 1987 is delightful. What a joy to behold.
Another joy is I can finally leave comments on Typepad again!
Such a lovely weekend.


Oh my I love them, I am always on the look-out for such artistry-just beautiful!!


I just LOVE the pieces that show the little critters and their homes. That mole is so hilarious! Thanks for sharing.


I borrowed this book from the local library before. There are a few English ondori books published around 1990. The whole series is indeed great! :-)


Oh my goodness, I could just eat them up! LOVE them!

Holy Moly! These patterns make me want to take a week off work just to stitch them. Thank you, thank you for sharing!
