Evening Bags

In addition to the stunning kimonos and obi worn by the Japanese ladies, several beautiful hand embroidered bags were in evidence at the Get Together Party, some of them stitched by their owners.

I love this beaded bag.



This beautiful bag was stitched by Sachiko-san who sat beside me throughout the meal and did an excellent job of translating between Huyome-san (spelling?) who spoke little English and the English ladies who spoke no Japanese at all. Thank you, Sachiko-san.
