Kanto Region, Japan






Spring has come here ! (?) sometimes feel chilly outside though^^

I made roll curatins for windows between our kitchen and living.
Last year,I got the marguerite fabric,loved it sooo much.
The sewed parts is only 3 places.
But I was tough to deal wooden parts.

Marguerite is my favorite flower.

I remembered an words.
It says "the flowers are gentle,comfort person who look them,don’t expect nothing out of return,
because of dedicated them,the flowers are beautiful.

Material Notes

Cotton fabric,rope,wooden parts,rivets,clinchers




Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter

    Oh, well done ! I’ve wanted (and have looked for) a tutorial on how to do these for a sliding patio door. Also, two oversize windows. I live in a passive solar home, and it is difficult to find the sizes I need. BTW, my father is Finnish ! I only know how to say grandmother.

    Hi Rika!!

    I think that Spanish flower is “clavel”, carnation in English, that’s the one that women wear in the hair. In second position, I would say “geranio”, geranium in English, which is the one you can see all over our towns in the balconies…

    What about the japanese one? Is it chrysanthemum?

    Very nice! I once had such curtains but of course they have not been as nice as yours! I like marguerites, too! Nice words, too, is this a japanese saying?
