  • What amazing photos…so much inspiration! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  • The clothes hanging on electrical wiring is hilarious. I also like all the patchwork they have on their buildings.
    I know what you mean about finding time to sew again. My classes are taking all the joy from me. 🙂
    you should definitely get a few cute Japanese prints. Etsy is the best place to get them since you can get fat quarters. I want to make a little hexagon quilt with mine but lost my hexagon maker tool so haven’t been able to. I think it got packed away…..

  • I see a lot of creative use and re-use everywhere in those pictures! It’s inspiring just to look at them.

  • Looks like you had a wonderful trip. Such an inspiring and colorful culture….

  • Can’t wait to see your quilt from that door photo! Looks like you had a wonderful time.
