A Block Printing Apron

Can you sense that we are in a dog phase right now?
More than two and a half years ago, we introduced two kittens to our family. This cat-owner journey's been bitter sweet. Soon after that, C was diagnosed with asthma and the test result showed that she's allergic to cats (!). As it turned out, that it's not very easy to rehome a cat. Till this day, we still cautiously live with one cat. And because of the allergy, C's not allowed to go too close to the cat, and the cat has no access to our bedrooms whatsoever. We're not a proud cat family if you'd ask me. The most asked question these days is "Can I get a dog?" I took her to the lab and did a blood test last week, not because we're getting a dog any time soon, but I simply want to make sure this time around that she's OK with dogs, if we ever get one in the far future. After the result showing negative on dogs and still positive on cats, that question has evolved to "When can I get a dog?"

Basic Tee with Japanese Linen Pants

Lately, my days start with discomfort triggered grumble produced by C, totally unrelated to the school day early morning routine. She stretches and twists her arms and pulls the tee shirts down as far as she can. It's the inevitable side effect of wearing clothes that are too small for you. Yep, she's outgrown hundreds of tee shirts I made for her last year, except for this very recent one made out of a bigger size.

Zipper Pouches with Sashiko Stitching and Blockprinting Experiment

I have a confession to make...
I might have picked up a new hobby, or two...
And like always, they are time consuming ones.
I'm fallen in love with Sashiko Stitching. I could do it all day long, if I was allowed. It's more theraputic than washing dishes.

A School Holiday Survivor

As a proud school holiday survivor mom, I feel I need to report to my very neglected online space. It has reminded me of my school years when I dreaded writing that holiday news just before the start of a new term. It's a compulsory habit, you see?
