I am Tokyo-bound and to get in the mood we had lunch at the Japanese Food Stall on Brick Lane .. delicious. I am spending the next eight days sampling fabric, haberdashery, silk threads and cord, investigating costume houses, armouries and hardware stores in Tokyo and Kyoto.
Almost exactly the holiday I would custom design for myself if I could do anything at all, and they call it work! I am thrilled.
I anticipate collecting an enormous amount of blog-able items.
