I have been thinking to make one of these since I saw mizusugi‘s ribbon ornaments. J and I had a discussion about how hers should be made and came to a conclusion that it must be made up of several small identical parts to be stringed together into a ball.
I was rather expecting something made by sort of weaving and insertion. After many messy experiments, I finally came up with a star that doesn’t look too bad. The paper strips were still from the same magazine as the crab and the basket set. I think it can make great accessories as Francesca’s.

No wonder Flickr is a place full of inspirations and I am never tired of being amazed. Here are some great projects I collected recently from Flickr.

I was in the kitchen when Mr Y came back from work yesterday evening. As Mandarin is the “official” language in our apartment, I was a little surprise to hear Mr Y’s first words were in English: “oh, crap!” I rushed out of the kitchen to see what’s wrong and soon realized what he said was “oh, crab!” because he saw the crab I made during the day occupying the place for his laptop.

Thanks to the technologies, we are able to watch TV programs that were on TV over 20 years ago. Even a show that I didn’t like so much when I was little can remind me of something fun. It’s Hana no Ko Lunlun (花の子ルンルン) what I am talking about.

I am so exhausted after a whole week going back and forth between two countries. This weekend has to be work-free! Therefore, I carried on with the project I started this week on the train. It is probably going to be my largest knitting project if I can finish it, but who knows how long it would takes. I am also not sure whether I will dare to wear it or not coz I don’t really like the color. 0.39 cent for 100g acrylic yarn is a little hard to resist.

Errata for the baby special issue of MCI came out today. Although they are not complete patterns, some people can certainly make use of them without looking at the original magazine. I got this issue on March 30 while I was waiting for my train in Metz. I finished reading it before I got to my room and became reluctant to open it again. It sort of disappointed me. I mean the cover has already been much worse than usual. The content inside doesn’t look any better than the cover, even though there are still some interesting parts. I guess I just had an extremely high expectation for MCI.

Why are you coming to France?
How long have you been in France?
Why did you choose to study here (namely France)?
Can you even understand a little bit French?

Even though it has been in the weather forecast, I still couldn’t believe my eye this morning. It is SNOWING!
And….when I arrived in France this afternoon, it’s sunny…….
