Santa Claus has come to town.Ted volunteered to be Santa Claus and pass out presents at a nearby Kindgergarten. (I guess that makes me Mrs. Claus). In Japan, Santa doesn’t have a moustache and he doesn’t say “Ho Ho Ho”, he rings hand bells. Some of the children were excited and some frightened. The children all said thank you, some in English and some in Japanese.
In the evening we went to a Christmas concert at the University, put on by the second year music students. It was very entertaining. The students wore Christmas decorations and played Christmas songs, singing in Japanese. I knew what the words were in English and it was odd to hear Japanese words in their place.
Ice Candles completedThe ice candles turned out very nice.
I finished the Caterina de’Medici project.
I see a couple of mistakes, but that’s okay. I wanted to try this, but it’s probably not a technique that I’ll be doing more of. The thread is thick and the fabric is coarse. It’s so nice to finish a project!
