Throwback Thursday

This is a look back on what I wrote about on March 18th since coming to Japan. (Click on the year to see more photos and the full post.)

2020 Last year I was working on the eyelet/rhodes bag.


Year two, week 45 of the temperature quilt.


Yabusame is Japanese archery while riding a horse.  I was able to see it done while visiting Odawara Castle.


T was for Temari that year.


I took Kendo classes in 2016.


On this day, I posted about finishing Queen Elizabeth I.


This was a Take A Stitch Tuesday post and that week I learned the Butterfly Chain Stitch.


I was working on my blackwork peacock and I posted some progress photos.


Masks - Yes! Back in 2012, when I was still very new to Japan, I noticed people wearing masks.  Who knew then that we would all be wearing and needing them when a pandemic struck years later?

I've had some incredible experiences in Japan and I enjoy looking back on my posts. I hope you do too!

Lovely to look back at what you were doing. Time travels so fast.

Wonderful to look back on what you have done. Before the pandemic I often saw Asian people wearing masks around Melbourne, I thought how uncomfortable it would be wearing them for a long stretch of time, now I know how it feels for myself!

I enjoy these "Throwback" posts. It is interesting to see what you have been doing over the years.

I certainly did enjoy look at your throwback Thursdays.
I, too, was amazed by the amount of people wearing mask. I had of course seen it in pictures, but when I started living here in 1980 it was overwhelming. I soon picked up the habit and since then have worn mask whenever I have had a cold.
I love your Elizabeth I.

I love your look-backs. I remember the wearing of masks puzzled and also inspired me back in 1999 or so when I visited. Great photos!

You're throwback posts are always such fun excursions to your past adventures and stitching!
