Tanya was troubled. She wrote of having kimono scraps and not knowing what to to do with them. This struck me as a pretty good problem to have. I wrote and told her that if she wanted to trade scraps to let me know what she would like in exchange. Saturday's mail brought a wonderful squishie from Japan. Inside were this splendid assortment of kimono scraps with a note of apology: "They are not all cotton." As if that mattered!

I know what to do with these scraps: For a start, fondle them for a good long time! Thank you, dear Tanya!
