Throwback Thursday - May 20th

The rainy season has come to my area of Japan - about three weeks earlier than last year! Walking to work in the rain is no fun. 

On to my look back on what I posted about on May 20th the last nine years, which is kind of fun for me.  (click on the year to see the full post)


Was a WIPWednesday, and one of the things I was working on was the rhodes stitch bag.


I was starting a new temperature year and posted this block.


I went to Guam over Golden Week that year and this was a post about the fishing culture there.


The stitch group was making beaded earrings.


This was a post about Japan's changing population - fewer children, more elderly.


In 2015 I wrote about the Quilt Week classes I attended with my friend Vicky.


In 2014, I was participating in Take a Stitch Tuesday (TAST) and that week the stitch was the zig zag coral stitch.


I attended the Hokkaido Quilt Show and posted some photos of quilts, the classes I took, and flowers in Sapporo that year.


I wrote about my first time eating at a conveyor belt sushi restaurant. I've missed doing this the last year.

It's good to look back from time to time and reflect on how good my time in Japan is and has been.

A blog is a great diary! I wonder what the post will be next year?

Occasionally I feel like giving up blogging, but it is so good to have these records of what we've done, where we've been, what was going on.

Always great to look back on your blog and see what has happened and what you have made.

Gosh, I can't remember the last time I had conveyor belt sushi!

My first visit here and I enjoyed it, found interesting details of Japan and what you have done over the years. The ageing population, less children sounds troublesome.
