Hi everyone. Thanks so much for wonderfully sweet
comments you guys always leave here for me.
I really love reading every one of them and appreciate
you taking time to visit my blog and leave comments/
e-mails. You always make my day!
I'm fully recovered now that it should be time
for me to get serious about studying. Having said that,
I've spent a lot of time in my crafting space this
weekend, just because I simply couldn't help it.
Balancing out the school work, my hobbies, and other things
isn't the easiest thing. But I know there are people much
busier than me but managing their time to have fun, so
I really want to learn to manage my time efficiently this semester.
My ideal week would include some sewing, relaxing,
studying (- not so much but unavoidable), and other
things -like households, babysitting, teaching
Japanese (Yes, I teach Japanese!) done efficiently.
Oh I have to start looking for internship too.
Phew! Busy Busy. But I like keeping myself busy.
I feel this great satisfaction when I know I can
get everything done.
Oops, too much blah blah blah. I have to talk about
pincushions don't I?! I've listed several more
pincushions in my etsy shop this morning.
This birdie one is already gone.
It was made for a custom order. Thanks ;) !!
This Japanese linen is another fabric I totally
forgot about. I think I bought it three years ago
in Japan. I liked it so much, but the piece of linen
became too small that it was hidden in between fabrics.
The greatest thing about making pincushions is that
I can make use of that kind of fabric - too small but too
cute to be unused. And it's such a pleasure
when you can find a use for it like that!
Lots of fun. Japanese linen fabric, American vintage fabric,
modern cotton fabric- they all get together make a harmony.
This is probably the simplest pincushion I've made.
I just love the different aqua colors together
and a little vintage flower fabric. Simply fun.
Pink x navy blue is another combo I love.
And of course, the addition of a little vintage and a
little English writing makes it perfect.
I seriously love this French newspaper looking fabric.
I think it's a blend of cotton and linen. I regret
not buying more when I found it in a small shop in Nippori.
*All pincushions are available in my shop*
Receive a small piece of Japanese fabric by
letting me know you came from here when you
purchase any items in my shop;)
Tired of looking at too many pincushions? How about this?
Bento box quilt is something I've wanted to make it for the
longest time. I am planning to make a quilt that measures
about 50" x 50", and it's going to be Joe's, so I am
restricting girlie pink fabric from the quilt.
Isn't it gorgeous? Bernie, who has been very supportive
of my craft business, was so nice to make me this kimono
coaster. What a nice surprise. I loooove it. I had to ask
her what kind of batting she used for it, because it is
made really nicely firm unlike my flimsy coasters I've made
a long time ago. She kindly told me that it is warm and
natural cotton batting. Thanks so much, Bernie.
Thanks for coming & reading!
Have a great week!
