Sometimes, you just have to get out and take a break
and see what there is to be seen.
My mom and I ventured out the Japanese Gardens.
The gardens have been hosting a cross cultural display
of textiles to honor Portland's sister city Sapporo, Japan.
They have juxtaposed the textiles of Northwestern Native Americans and the Ainu, an indigenous people of Japan.
The Ainu robes were wonderful!
The shapes and techniques were totally unique.
I love the curves and beauty of the appliques on this robe.
It was such a unique display!
And of course we had to stroll through the gardens.
The iris are just coming into bloom.
And the angst of the last couple of days just flowed away.....
