I've been extra happy for the past few days. Among
many reasons for that, I would like to share just two
for today. For one, I am having a blast at silk-screening,
(well, obviously.) I really enjoy printing fabric just
because this is something I'd wanted to do for the
longest time. I've been using the same stencil to
produce many sheets of fabric with different colors.
Fabric with writing is a high demand for me, so it
simply makes me happy to know that the more fabric
I print, the richer my fabric resources become.
Some people have nicely asked me if I would sell these
silk-screened fabrics. At first, I was so impressed
with your bravery. "Are you sure? You can trust my
silk-screening skills?" I was really happy that anyone
would want fabrics that was printed by me.
I wasn't sure if my fabric is something worth
being sold. But then I thought about it for a while
and came to the conclusion that I would like to humbly sell
my silk-screened fabrics. This is simply because
I love these fabrics and can think of many ways to use
them, meaning that probably there is someone out there
who might feel the same way about the fabrics.
Each sheet of fabric has at least 0.5"
borders and the printed area is approximately 8" x 10".
I have some left, and I'll print a lot more.
Please e-mail me if you are interested in
purchasing any by letting me know which
one you would want (please use letters next to each
fabric in the picture.) and how many,
and we'll go from there ;)
A set of lunch mats in progress...fun!
Another thing that made me really happy happened
yesterday. Joe suddenly came back home around 3 pm
yesterday, happy and blushed, with a little box in
his hand. I was still in pajamas; my hair totally
messed up; I was sewing up those lunch mats.
Then he came over to me and handed me the box.
"Will you marry me?"
In my hand was a shiny necklace with a little heart.
I was absolutely surprised.
I became teary in the very next moment, feeling
so warm, pleased, lucky, excited, and blessed.
Of course, I said yes and we became engaged now.
It was over 6 years ago when I met him.
We were both students at the community college.
I met him in the Japanese class where I was
volunteering as a teaching assistant.
Almost immediately after we became acquainted,
I knew for sure that he was the man for me.
Before I met him, I really didn't know what it is
like to love someone besides family. When I was
in high school, many of my girlfriends and I got
together and made a list of 'who gets married first."
Interestingly, those names listed for small numbers
did really get married before the ones listed later.
And me? I was the very last one.
My friends knew that I could be extremely careful
when it comes to making a big decision, and they
were totally right. I would've had no problem
staying single in my entire life if I had not met Joe.
Joe was an absolutely ideal one for me.
It was him who was always there to remind me
to think positively about life, myself, and everything.
It was him who understands me the most and
fully accepts me as who I am. And it was him
who encouraged me to explore in life.
I feel so, so lucky that he happens to
feel the same way as I do. I kept
asking him; "Are you sure I am the one
you want to spend your rest of life with?"
And he said "Yes, like I said a million times."
I hope your life is filled with love like mine.
Sorry, the last half of the post was totally unrelated
to sewing, but I really wanted to let you know
about this, because you've become a big part
of my life. Now, time for me to call my friend who
has been waiting to hear about this news.
I'm so excited to talk to her!!!!
Thanks for taking your time to stop by!
