Progress on the Japan SAL

I am enjoying this project and after a diversion with the DBEM's knitting got back into it tonight.  Some more cherry blossom, a rising sun and part of The Mountain.   I think the blue beside the red Torii Gate is supposed to be a snow crystal. 
Currently I am timetabling my days so as to ensure I don't waste time so will do another hour or two on this tomorrow. 
The DBEM and I are planning an adventure to the shops to cross off some items on our list. Cleaning fluid for our spectacles is high on the list!    We both have only sufficient for a few days.   I have a list for the only local handwork supplies shop so hope I can get all I need (a must have is DMC156!!)and can then start on another sewing project.   I have promised a warm gilet for my Great-Nephew and want to get onto it asap.   He's an active outdoors little one-year-old and an extra layer would certainly help his parents to keep him warm.
Another progress report in a few days.


  1. I know I'm dim Margaret and I really ought to know, but what is a SAL? (Sorry!)

  2. Lots of nice detail in this design Margaret.

  3. This is looking beautiful. DJ does a lot of Tempting Tangles, do you follow her blog?

  4. Hi Margaret,
    I love your blog. I have been following for quite some time and enjoy your cheerful, gentle and interesting commentary on your life in beautiful New Zealand. I am an Aussie who would love to live permanently in NZ and your blog lets me experience NZ vicariously. Thank you and stay safe.

  5. Great progress, I love the colours in this SAL. Hope you got your 156!
