Tapestry with Japanese scene

Not only work, also sew-related it was a busy week (do you hear something different, or is every week a busy week?). Yet I don't have anything to show you! I tried to do a small design, but it turned out to be even more work than doing a big one, so there's hardly anything to show. Besides that I have been sewing and doing some applique for a friend meant to be given on Sinterklaas. Remember Sinterklaas?

Last week I received something beautiful. A friend told me she bought a tapestry and planned to use the cloth for sewing. She showed a picture and I almost fell of my chair! She couldn't seriously cut this into pieces! So I tried to convince her not to and lucky me, she listened and told me I could buy the tapestry.

Look at this:








The colours seem to be faded and I think it is made for the European market, back in the sixties perhaps? If anyone of you knows more, please tell me!
