WIP - Kazuko Aoki's design

Hi, how are you doing?
I have been feeling gloomy nowadays as the weather is also gloomy and dull...

I have finished Private Exchange for Nina, and PIF for the last participant of round 1 : Staci, and sent them out, so feel happy that I have no commitments, I have been stitching what I want!

I bought Kazuko Aoki's book and had been stitching a design for two, one is for myself, and another one is... as you probably might know, for my mum (lol)
This is very beautiful design and I fell in love, as well as my mum.

When I gathered threads, there were almost no threads in my stash, so I went out for buying threads.
Her design is very natural and so beautiful, so I like it!
I'm going to stitch other designs from her book later.

Here is a tomato diary.
The left one was taken on 28, May and the right one was taken on 5th of June!
It's so fun to observe them. There are about 5 tomatoes on the tree!
Hope they grow more and more and will turn in red!

There is still some days left for the GIVEAWAY!
I changed the deadline to 14, June (Sunday) Japanese time.

Just a gorgeous design and your stitching is, of course, just beautiful. I love pink too and roses and your stitching which is so perfect. Your tomato plant is growing beautifully and can't wait to see the new baby tomato. Love Patti xxx
