WIP

10/03/2008

There’s not much to write about, really. Except – I got finished the back of my two-coloured cardigan and started working on the first right front. I think I might frog a part of the back (again) since it seems just too wide. Now, I am too enthusiastic about how the front looks like and I want to finish that. I just must remember to start working on decreases for sleeves and neck.

And you do remember the package from Japan, don’t you? My friend sent a very cute embroidery book – in fact it is for Tamara, but since she can’t do embroidery, I’ll use it for some time ;)

I don’t know if there’s anything cuter than Japanese craftsy books, I really don’t… I was so tempted by sweet motives  but I really didn’t have a particuar idea until recently, when I decided to start writing a journal about our life. It’s a very special kind of journal – every day I wirte one sentence about something that happened that day. So, when I read it, it’s easy to remember those not so special days that make our life.

I used to write such journals (or diaries?) until just a couple of years ago and abandoned it when I started working on my ‘Sunday journal’. That didn’t really work very well, so, now I am back to condensed journal. This one will of course be filled with things Tamara did, so I decided to make an embroidered sleeve for it and use one of the cute japanese motives. The fabric is from my turkish stash, it’s linen in natural colors.
