We’re here! It took a six-hour drive to Chicago, 12-hour flight to Tokyo, 90-minute bus ride from the airport, ten-minute walk to the hotel, and a 14-hour jump ahead into tomorrow, but we made it.

Thunder Bay is out there somewhere

Many of those hours on the plane were passed by making progress on another of our homework assignments, a stitched shibori linen piece that feels like it will take a lifetime to complete.

It will all be worth it once we are immersed in stitching and dyeing.  But first, a day to take in as much of Tokyo as we can.
