KG at Orange County

KG is on extended business trip to the U.S.
So I visited him.
This was the first time for me to visit the West Coast.
The people there are friendly. So different from the NY.

nasudake01 nasudake02
Nasu-dake was at the height of the fall foliage.
We are impressed by the color of mountain surface.


At night, we stayed at a lodge near the peak.
Then I was petrified with horror because of the dream.
Sooo scared...

Umeboshi, done well!


This was the first time for me to pickle Ume, but it seems to go well thanks to my mother in law.

How to pickle Ume:
1. Soak Ume in salt water for 1 week.
2. Dry Ume in the sun for 3 straight days.
3. Soak Ume in vineger and liquor, and add crystal sugar.
4. Dry Ume in the sun for 3 straight days again.

Well done!

Necklaces of Beads.

I made them by myself.
The hardest step is deciding the combination of every parts-- beads, colors, ...
Don't you think they can be sold at a good price...?

Umeboshi--pickled plums


I've just started to pickle Ume.

My mother in low gave me 3kg of Ume last week.
Ume is..."Japanese apricots", maybe. I'm not sure what Ume is called in English.

It would take about 1 month to pickle Ume perfectly.
I hope it goes well.

Cushions, again.


This time, I sewed these two cushion covers for my mother.
She chose two kinds of textiles and asked me to make them.
I hope she'll like them.
