My Final Six Letters

I have completed the letters and intend to bind them into a little book.  Here are the last six.  I was  a bit liberal where there is no Japanese equivalent:  for "V" I used an item beginning with "B" which is usual for foreign words in Japanese, and for "X" I used one beginning with K which has a similar sound.

A round paper fan with a wooden handle
An umbrella made of bamboo and oiled paper
Japanese style confectionery
A helmet worn by samurai
A snow viewing stone lantern
A cowl or hood

Thank you Fiona for hosting this blog.  It's been interesting, informative and impressive to see the variety of techniques and concepts which people have come up with, so thanks to everyone for sharing your work.
