I am spending New years holidays lazily now, but I was very very busy to make `Kadomatsu` (New year`s decorative pine branches) the end of year.
I made small type like this picture. But that was a troublesome job.
I worked hard without holiday for a month.
In evening after work,I started to make Kadomatsu.
At first, I cleaned rice straw and bind them a handful size.
And then, I cut banboo like this picture and bind them three by three.
I worked late up to 2am or 3am having cup noodle and some beer.
The red of nandina looks beatiful.
I made 10 and delivered them to our customer. They were really pleased to get my Kadomatsu.
I worked up to 4am last 3 night and very sleepy and tired, but I was happy to see that.
