Postcard Swap - Use a Photo.

Our Aus-NZ art textile group's latest swap, is to make 4 postcards using a photo.
I bought the fabric in a little quilt shop in Tokyo that we found in the subway under out hotel.
The pre-cut fabrics (Japan's version of a fat quarter 30cm x 112cm)
were 200Yen and 170Yen = $2.10 and $1.80 AUD.
Practiced some sashiko stitching, not an easy task, getting the right amount of stitches.

 Photos - O-torii Gate at Miyajima off the coast of Hiroshima.
(O-torii means Grand)
 Photo - Kaisekito Pagoda on the edge of Hisagoike Pond 
in the Kenrokuen Gardens in Kanazawa.
Photo - Memorial Lantern in the garden of a home in Takayama.
