Just a process of embroidery work.
It's the Sun.
A long time ago, an asteroid explorer launched from Japan ran into trouble on the way and was considerably delayed from its
scheduled return. After that, due to the ingenuity and enthusiasm of the engineers, "he" survived to the earth's atmosphere, and after that, he left useful materials in the pod and burned
"He" accomplished his mission and burned out in a flash of light. It might be a little too sentimental to see humanity in the
spacecraft. However, I hear that everyone who has traveled to space wants to return to Earth. I made a study of the image of his hometown that "he" saw during his lonely time in space. After
thinking about the image many times, I would like to refine it and make it a little bigger work.

I often think of my parents these days. They gave me so much love. My father gave me strength, courage, and the joy of living, and my mother gave me
kindness, rigor, and perseverance. Each of them also has parents, and they must have many good and bad memories. They are all still in my heart.
I believe they are in heaven now watching over me warmly and tenderly. It's very difficult to express my heart, and I think my current abilities are still
immature, but I created this piece while thinking that the wishes and thoughts of the two are inside me.

Trough embroidery and craft every day for me is not only learning and discovering new things but also having happy and fun time.
I try various things every day and choose the most comfortable one at that time and make it the next task.
I believe that if I continue to do this for decades, the closet in my heart will have many drawers and my heart will be enriched.
These embroidery works are work in my practice.
When your heart is filled with sadness, when you are troubled,
take a needle and thread with you. Even if it is poorly done, when you embroider a flower with a color and express a landscape in your mind with stitches, you will surely feel lighter if you
concentrate on something. Let's enjoy handcraft together.
I had bought some old cotton printed fabrics at an antique shop in a rural town in the United States, but they weren't very large, so I couldn't use them.
One day, I came up with the idea of a mat that would be a small cushion between the ceramic cups. There are fine stitches along the shape, but they are not visible because they are turned inside
I like the small items that I create in a relaxed atmosphere between neat works.
Sewing gives me a lot of peace of mind.
One day, I got some beautiful white vintage beads.
The beads were used in a dress, but the dress was dismantled by a collector and the beads were sent across the sea to Japan.
I made a bangle using this bead.
Sewing the small beads one by one was a job that required a lot of patience,
but I remember working wholeheartedly because I had a stronger desire to see the beauty in my hands.
When I think about what a woman in a dress was like in the past, her radiant figure transcends time and touches my heart.
