2010年

年が明けて2010年になりました。我が家はまだ喪中ですのでおめでとうは言わないことになっていますが、今年が皆さまによいお年でありますように。

I wish you all a Happy New Year!! though it's a Japanese tradition we don't celebrate the new year days while we are in mourning.

この素敵なビーズのオーナメント「生命の木」は昨年12月に、アメリカのリンから送られたものです。ずっと新年の最初のブログに使おうと思って待っていました。

It's a big pleasant suprise when I received this "Tree of Life" ornament from Lynn Schoeffler in USA before Christmas. I have been waiting to show this beatiful gift until the first post of this year. Many things happened for me last year, not only good things but also sad things. "Tree of Life". Isn't it nice? I am encouraged.



これは昨年のスワップシスター、フィンランドのマラから届いたきれいに飾られたブロックとクレージー用セット一揃いです。この季節にぴったりの色合いです。

These beautiful block and baggie in season color were from Malla in Finland. She was my swap sister last year. Thank you very much for being my sister through the year, Malla. I love your baggie so much. Your color choice was always nice. I would like to make something from your each baggie in future.






これは今年には完成させたいと思っているブロックです。年の初めにお披露目しておきます。

This almost naked block is from last year too. I would like to finish it in this year. Maybe it's one of my new year resolutions.

Hideko,

Your blocks are always so elegant. I love your last block on this post. the colors are lovely and it looks so beautiful. I cant wait to see it all embellished. I know it will be stunning! Is your block for a wall hanging or something else?

Hi Hideko,
Thanks so much for sharing these lovely things with us.
I always like to see your wonderful creations but I'm especially looking forward to see your progress on the last block on this post.
Much love...
