I missed a day yesterday because Tetsu and I went out to Mashiko, the pottery town again. We weren't really planning to go that way but that was the direction we were heading and we ended up wandering around the town again. (And bought NOTHING.)
Lots of pretty buildings. Lots of pretty pottery, some quite expensive. This lovely cherry blossom dish was priced at $500. Hmm, I don't think so. It doesn't go with the rest of the decor in my house which is modern cat.
But look at this neat dish, also too pricey. I think this person has studied making quilting feathers with Tazzie or Elaine.
Just walking up and down the streets made me smile. This was just a little house on the main street with a very round cat sitting on the front step enjoying sites of passersby. This is pretty typical around my area. Gravel driveways, boxes and other things that don't fit in the house "decorating" the outside. Laundry hanging in view of everyone, a pot or two of flowers to brighten the place up a bit.
I came home to knit. Yes knit! This has been an ongoing project since January when I decided to rip apart one of Tetsu's old sweaters and use up some left over skeins of yarn. Tetsu kept asking me "What are you making? It looks like a donut." I started from the neck down so it was a bit of a strange construction. I finished last night. Ta-Da!
Just in time to put away until next winter....
