I am very nearly home from my wonderful trip to Japan. Al met me at Heathrow airport on Wednesday afternoon and we headed from there to my parent's home in Essex where we have been relaxing for a few days. (I managed to get a nasty cold which was aggravated on the flight home). Tomorrow we will return to Lincolnshire, via a stop at DS and DDiL's for a nice cup of tea. I had added photographs to the posts I wrote while I was staying at Sawa san's so please go back to them and have a look. I will try to organise the photos from the Japan Textile Study Tour (nearly 1000 of them) into some sort of logical series of subjects rather than a day by day, blow by blow account of the tour. The JTST exceeded all my expectations (and they were high). We did wonderful things, saw great things and met fantastic people. The members of the tour were all lovely.
