I have been shocked and saddened by the events that have unfolded in Japan in the last week with the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami.  I had the opportunity to travel through parts of Japan last year in winter.  Very cold but very beautiful.

I have updated my blog to have an oriental garden appearance in honour of this wonderful country and have included a handful of my favourite photos from this trip.  I am sure that, in time, this country will recover and rebuild and my thoughts are with the people of Japan

The last photo, which I love with the blossom, is my profile photo.

It is international hermit and stitch weekend this weekend.  I intend to work on Baroque and 3 french hens and hope to get a reasonable amount of stitching done.  If interested go to Random Ramblings and join in the fun.  Here is to a weekend of happy stitching.

Wendy, I echo your thoughts and hopes. It's heartbreaking watching the news and seeing their struggles and not being able to do anything about it. It's super sweet of you to change the background on your blog. I love it!!

Happy Stitching this weekend. Looking forward to your post on Monday. :D
