Here's my mini for November - another collage quilt inspired by boro. I finished it yesterday and I'm calling it "Love Thy Neighbor."
It's about 12"x18" finished.
Neighborhoods in Tokyo are dense, dense, dense, and very very quiet. And, even in such a densely populated city, COVID is pretty much under control. Wearing masks is a given, and people generally do what is best for the common good. I call that loving your neighbor. Love Thy Neighbor has also been on my mind this year as I've done a lot of reading and discussing about anti-racism. Trying hard to "do the work."
There's no Thanksgiving holiday here in Tokyo. And of course I missed all my kids so much.
David and I went to a classic tonkatsu place for dinner. Pork cutlet, with cabbage, rice, soup, and pickles. A choice of savory and savory/sweet sauces.
But the real nice semi-Thanksgiving flavors were found on Wednesday night at Shake Shack, which is walking distance from our apartment. They have a holiday chicken sandwich that it outstanding, with kale, cranberry relish, pickled onions, gruyere cheese. It was so good!
And, ZERO dishes to clean up. Trying to see the silver lining here!
