2 years ago, 11th March.

I am sorry that I have been away for a while.
Time goes by so quickly.

Life of many in Tohoku Japan changed 2 years ago, on 11th of March.
Many are still looking to find out what had happened to their loved ones.
Many are still living in a temporary housing.
Many still need time to overcome what their lives had become.
Sometime, only time can heal.

2 years is maybe a life time for some, 2 years is maybe too short for others.

We may be just human beings, so powerless against the power of the nature,
but let's not forget what happened and let's not forget we can have hope.

Our support maybe small but we hope that we can make a small difference to the lives of people in Tohoku.

The Stockbridge Market

It was a lovely day. Blue sky and Christmas decorations everywhere.
Trees are on sale and they will be the centre of attentions at each house where they are adopted for the duration of festivities filled with shiny bits and bobs.
Crisp coldness in the air, colourful hats and scarves on the people walking by, somehow faster than they did in the last month, gave me the sense that the Christmas day is just an around the corner .

On this day, 5 amigurumi found their new homes.

Thank you so much for your continuous support.


P.S amigurumi will be at the market again next Sunday, please come along if you are around in Edinburgh.
