Last April we were in Tokyo & Kyoto for 10 days. Sushi, the Tokyo Tower, udon noodles, the fish market, heated toilet seats, japanese baths, baseball games with girls sells beer with kegs on their backs, super fans at the baseball games, riding bikes around Kyoto from temple to temple, geisha girls, experiencing the end of cherry blossom season... What an amazing trip!
Less than a year later, disaster in Japan. The quilting community has really stepped it up with donations to help out. Like Oh, Fransson... she is giving away her Tokyo Subway Quilt for those that donate to the Red Cross between now and March 23rd! What an amazing gift. Check out her blog post and donate today!
