I have my friend Ling's bright red wool jacket from
Beijing hanging in my closet. On the chest area it has
an embroidered yellow and gold sunflower with some
brown and black threads in it. The sleeves and neck
are lined with a silky material patterned with a
design similar to the Buddhist endless knot. And, the
jacket is so warm! I am going to sew new sturdier button
loops on it for her--with red thread, of course.
I painted this picture of Ling's jacket last night before bed.
