Day 6 of the blogchallenge.

Detail from Japanese Garden
My first Handembrodered
painting Japanes Garden 1966
We were lucky to travel a lot in our life. For most in Europe, but we traveled 3 times to the Far East and worked as juggers in Japan, Hongkong, Taiwan and Thailand.
I could write a whole book about the experience we had there. The people and traditions, like their gardens and tempels. So very different than here in Holland. I was always busy making showcostumes and looked for the handstiched kimono's. That is where I found a different way of handembroidering Artpictures. I bought everything I needed for that work. Tread in all colours and a special needl. You have to pul a little of the thick tread loose so it gets all wrinkeled, than pul it trough a long needle with an opening on 1 end and on the other end a larg eye to put the thread in . After that it is easy just follow lines stiching in and out it goes very fast.  I just found an other piece that I did not finish yet but I will if I find the needl again.
