If you are wondering why the title of this blog entry is “the second bunch”, you must have missed/forgotten the first bunch that I posted a few while ago. The last bunch is from cardboards. This time, the coasters are made from pages of the campus magazine I have been using for my weaving projects quite a few times. I might try some other material to make the third bunch in the future. It is always nice quick projects to make coasters. I’ve already got all types/sizes of coasters all over my place, causing a little mess. Maybe a coaster holder is more urgent than the third bunch. The good thing is I can find a coaster whenever and wherever I am putting a cup down.

How my desk looks like always reflects how my life is going on. The picture on the left shows a small part of my desk roughly 10 days ago. It simply became worse and worse until I started packing up for the trip. My desk at home is empty right now, while I am creating another mess on the desk in the hotel room in a small old town north to Berlin. I am sure I will clean up before we leave….hopefully….:)

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.

I had been collecting the same type of lids for a few months last year since I started to consider a board game project. Although there are so many choices, I ended up with the simplest one. *blush* Here comes a brief tutorial for how to make and play the game. There are various online version of this game (Hatch and Match). Continue Reading Matching Memory Game…

I had several deadlines, several new tasks and several meetings in two cities this week. It’s great this busy week is going to the “end”. And, it’s great I can finally talk about my crafts.
Some were wondering how I can put my yarns into a bottle, while some even thought I bought such a bottle of yarn as a whole. Well, I wish there would be such things available here, but the truth is it’s something everyone can make. Continue Reading Drinking and Knitting…
