Ikebana.

Kimono and other Japanese textiles are literally covered in flowers and other motifs from nature. There is something Japanese how the flowers are composed and represented. Taking a quick look at Japanese flower arrangement composition might fire some synapses when appreciating Japanese textiles and designing stencils.
Hiro took everyone for a walk and gathered branches and flowers and mossy rocks to use in their own arrangements. He was such a good teacher. The results were great. Snoopy made a rare appearance on the third floor to enjoy the party.

  2. Just the extra flower containers. Snoopy was so sweet that day. She is really on her last legs. Any time spent together is precious.
