Back from my Travels
I am back from my 2 weeks in Japan - boy, it flew past in a blur!! I will report back on the travels once I have managed to process it all in my mind. Needless to say, I had an amazing time. Japan was everything I expected and more. Highlights included visiting the Kiyomizu-dera Temple in Kyoto at night, lit for the cherry blossom season; the snow monkeys at Yudunaka and the buzz of Tokyo!
Before I left for my trip I managed to send off another little baby blankie that was part of a swap with Heidi over at Spiritual Knitter. She had requested one with a pig theme because her son Sam was born in the Year of the Pig, so I went with the Three Little Pigs. I love how it turned out. There was a little squeaker (a new addition to the baby blankies courtesy of Twist Fibre Craft) in the straw house and a little piggy hiding in the wooden house....whilst the wolf can be seen stuck in the chimney of the brick house......I think Sam likes it!
