and now the artsies.

160, one day i went to kyomizutera already finished. i am working with shifu and silk weaving chapters of sei shonagon's the pillow book. such a beautiful read and  i feel lucky to have the morris translationon this second reading i captured some nuances that had escaped me and thought it would be a good project to translate it to textiles. chose weavable chapters at random and it is  slowly, as it's been worked on the table loom, progressing.
