I don’t know about the others, but it’s generally more challenging and more time-consuming to prepare handmade gifts for those who do crafting themselves than for the others as the standard and the expectation are always much higher. I would rather withdraw the craft project if it is not going to the right direction. This happened now and then and it’s why my good crafting friends are not getting gifts so often.

On the other hand, if I am lucky to crack the challenge, some pieces would come out really great. I’ll consider this macramé owl one of them. Except for the bittersweet frustration due to this project, I probably made a good bet on this one since Bec, the current owner, seems to like it. 🙂

when Mr Y and I was waiting at the clinic this morning, I had my favorite Ai Akikusa(秋草愛)‘s book with me.

The little bookmark was soon revealed and then the following conversation started:

Y> Ah, it’s a moo card!
T> Hmm…, that’s my handmade bookmark.
Y> Yeah, but you’ve got “Moo” on the card.
T> Oh, yes, that’s cow “moo”.
Y> And, it’s almost the same size as your moo cards.
T> Oh, yeah…..but…..
Y> Maybe a little longer….did you get inspiration from those moo cards?
T> I don’t think so. It was way back before our first move, more than 3 years ago. It should be older than…..
Y> So, did you dream about it? Like Allison in Medium?
T> ………

It’s nice to take a look at some old projects, but I really didn’t expect the conversation going this way. Now I am totally aware that there is a so-called “TV-kid” close by. 😛

Here’s the picture of the scrunchie I finished …… hmm …… in July. It could be a bad sigh that I am getting lazier and lazier and I barely have new things to show, but it could also be a good sign of a possible return. We’ll see.

p.s. I have got my first moo mini-cards and I love them. 🙂
