I don’t cycle much around here. I wish I still have the mamachari I had when I was in Japan. But the truth is, there isn’t much of a need to cycle right now. I’ll confess that I don’t know very much about bicycles too, apart from being about to tell pretty bicycles from the boring ones. Skirt guards? Dress guards? What?! I’ve never bothered much about these. Until now.

So, I’ve been sewing quite a bit lately and I’m happy that it’s so. It’s something that I take delight in, especially when seeing the final product and having the satisfaction that I made it with my own hands! Lately, I noticed that sewing allows me to think about things. The same way runners think when they go on a run (I get that sometimes when I run. That is if I’m not busy thinking about how tired I am and how much more to cover).
I’m working towards listing something on my little shop at least once a month :).

I am in love and in awe of the work of Max Wanger. Especially those images which demonstrate excellent framing and clever use of empty space, such as these below. They inspire one to greater creativity.

Lately, I’ve been curious as to what folks use to dry their dishes? I’ve been seeing lots of beautiful tea towels online and even got 2 for my friends last Christmas. But I’ll find it hard to use these beautiful pieces for actual drying and cleaning though. My most recent tea towel crush are these two from The Hungry Girls:
Aren't they fun?

So, it’s the lunar new year tomorrow! If you’re celebrating it, I’m sure you’re caught up in the festivities by now. I’ll keep this post short with this beautiful felt MRKT red packets available at Rockstar. You know it’s going to stand out amongst the many other freely given away ones with names of sponsors printed all over.
Okie dokie, back to snacking on new year goodies (or supposedly cleaning the house). Happy lunar new year, folks! Have a successful year of the rabbit!
