This is a pattern by Nancy Hieronymus Barrett called Gentle as Peach Blossoms. It's a pattern I've had a few years and just got around to making. Called Peach Blossom after the Peach Blossom Festival held in Japan on March 3 each year to honour small girls.
They are dressed in their finest kimono's and attend tea parties in their friends homes.
This is the third stray we have had hanging around our property in the last few months. He's been gradually getting closer to the house. I still can't get to close, but at least now he doesn't run to far when I go out to feed him. I'm hoping we can trap him and hopefully rehome him. The other two were very friendly once they were caught. Why do people just abandon their pets like that?? Now I managed to get a picture of him I'll put it up at the local post office. You never know! Somebody may want him.
That my grandmother made. This photo of my mothers best friend's sister wearing one of the many jackets she made. I still have the jacket made for my mother when she arrived in Cranberry portage Manitoba as a war bride.
