I hauled this inside this morning to keep it out of the sun and so that the students could enjoy the blooms. I also put my back out doing it. It was a slow class.

Yukata Designs

Seven students have decided to make linen/cotton shibori summer kimono and are making small small samples of shibori techniques to decide what pattern they like the best. Ogata san went all out and tried shirokage shibori. The square checked one. It was too much work so she decided that she won't attempt a 12 meter version. It would take several hundred hours to complete. I'm looking forward to seeing the complete yukatas before the heat of summer sets in.
