Doing kanzashi once more.
Kusudama, peonies, peoniesreadyfortheircloseupMrDeMille, primrose, cherry blossom, narcissus, little plum blossoms.
(Hobbies=seasonal. Embroidery in winter, kanzashi until July when I start to get cosplay-angst.)
I get most of my reference pictures from Flickr, which is also where I posts more of the above if you want to see the whole lot so far (also goony shots o'me wearing them.)
Still getting the official kanzashi site (subset of Peacockalorum) allfinished, so not linking to that yet, as it's mostly empty.
I start looking at recent maiko pictures for Research and discover 10+ new kanzashi which were not in evidence before. They were all wearing silk pine leaves in January, and there is a whole new type of daffodil. Also a little ume arrangement in pink red and blue which must be replicated. Also tracked down suitable colours of shibori (NOT making my own shibori, there are not enough knots in the world) so can make a proper pinwheel. I will never be finished with this project.
At least it will give me something to do when I am 80.
