母の作品 my mother's work/le ouvrage de ma mère - 2013.06.23 Sun
This mid-week, I went back to my mother's house in Fukushima for tending her garden. It is our usual work in the season. Though the garden is small, it is tough work for 82-year-old mother and I ( am in my 50s and have a pain in the lower back!!).
Finally, we got the tidy garden in exchange for my muscle pain....
This is my mother's applique work for a partition at the kitchen entrance. The butterflies were very beautiful, so that I took pictures with my iPhone.
For the ground fabric, she used kimono cloth that her sister-in-law gave her. She was very happy to have done well.
This morning, she went on one-day trip to Yamagata for cherry picking with her friends of the patchwork group. I am really happy that she is VERY well!!
