The Color of Onion

Exactly, the skin of onion can produce a nice color.
That's my favorite.

On the weekind, I enjoyed dying raw wool/silk and silk yarn.

First, I boil the dried onion skin in boilng water.

Second, dip the material in the strained liquid.

Then, by way of mordanting and washing, I dry it.

Don't you think that's successful ?


Travel Alone

Nothing might be more pleasant than making a trip,
having on my own way.

Early in the morning, Sep.4, I left Nagoya for Takayama by train.

I enjoyed walking in the forest along the river at Kamikochi,

spent the night in Takayama,
and the next day I was watching the horizon of the Japan Sea
on the small ship at Himi in Toyama.
I love the water.

I moved to Kanazawa by train again to visit
the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art.

Unfortunately, I was not allowed to see
that famous swimming pool by Leandro Erlich
from the basement because of its facility
I was pleased with Blue Planet Sky.
A square is cut off from the ceiling
so that we can see the sky.
It's really appealing.

I also came across a lot of delicious foods here and there.

I'm looking forward to getting a chance
to make a trip again some day in near future.


Extremely Hot Summer !

Even in September, it's been hot day after day !


I'll take a couple of days off, and
I'm planning to escape from this hotness.

"Have a nice weekend !" I'm speaking to myself now.

See you soon !
