07:08 pm: Colorful day
Since I had no other pressing business, I worked on one of my novel summary projects. It took nearly all day, but I finally finished and posted the summary of the first volume of the series Saiunkoku Monogatari.

In the afternoon, the sewing teacher took me out to buy yukata fabric. I chose the design in the picture. It looks really neat with the fabric draped from the neck down, since the leaves of the tulips look almost like a river. It was, however, quite expensive. I can see how one might want to go with a plainer fabric like basic stripes that can be bought at a craft store much cheaper.

The guy at the kimono store also mentioned that most of his fabric is woven in Tookamachi. (He brought it up when he heard I had lived in the area.) They're pretty famous for their kimono. The store guy chatted about how Sapporo was a bit to far away to go for their snow festival, but he did make it to Tookamachi's snow festival once.

If I ever get to Japan? Not allowed anywhere near that store. I will break either my bank account or my heart.

Can't wait to see the yukata progress!

<sigh> It's just all so amazingly gorgeous.

I hung two of the used kimono I bought up on my walls. Sometimes I just sit and stare at how pretty they are.

This weekend's project: square dancing clothes.
