QUILT/STASH PROJECT-2020--DETERMINED QUILTER
Wednesday, December 9, 2009...Week 18--Blog 28--Day 118 of 4,014
Report: Quilt/Stash Project-2020
One week since last Blog---or quilting time-progress..*&^%$#%$%
..the ordinary, mundane, boring chores of life keep demanding and taking time and attention.
However,..small mission accomplished this morning: the orange-purple flowered fabric purchased last week for the backing of the Pink Fan/Stars Japanese quilt just did NOT work.
So,,new fabric had to be purchased....found at Ben Franklin...deep purple with gold leaves...I hope this is right.
REPORT: TRAVELING TOGETHER-JAPAN TOUR--NOVEMBER 6-15, 2009
Day 5-Tuesday, November 10: Train to Takayama-Rain-Hot Springs-Hot Tub- Roykan-Japanese Dinner
Train---Kyoto to Nagoya, then NOT TO BE MISSED...Train--- Nagoya to Takayama:
TWO hours of absolutely spectular mountains/river continually Blooming!! Blooming!! Blooming!!with seemingly every gorgeous flowering/color changing tree native to Japan (except Cherry Blossoms?). RAIN in the hot springs town of Yakahama which did not stop all my tour colleagues from energetically- with focused purpose- exploring the town, the local outdoor markets and merchants; I stayed snug at the Roykan and and indulged myself in bubbling, steaming hot tubs--soothing my deprived, sibaretic soul. EIGHT course traditional Japanese dinner and tatami mats for sleeping made for a perfect Japanese experience.
Day 6-Wednesday, November 12: Morning rain did not deter my enthsiastic and determined colleagues from "buying out" the kimono goodies of a small village shop. They hit (figuratively, of course) the $100,000 jack-pots kimonos..kimonos..kimonos all compelling and wonderful
Then: Afternoon TRAIN to Tokyo with two hours of glorious mountain foliage again.
The Buddha was smiling on us.
Happy Quilting--Determined Quilter
