hapazome


Our son is back in UK, hurrah.


And so are our house martins, after a long winter away in South Africa. It is just so incredible, that such a small bird can make a just a long journey. At the moment there are 4 pairs, busily repairing their nests below our roof.



Watching the television last night I learned about hapazome, a Japanese technique of transferring flowers and leaves directly into a fabric, amazing and so simple. I can't wait to try it out. So much inspiration for embroidery.
At the moment I can't find any reference to a book on the subject.

  1. First I am thrilled your son is home safely.

    I would love to hear about hapazome when you find out more about it.

    I love the pic in the garden.
