I am not talking about anything religious or anything entertaining like the song Pocketful of Sunshine although the song is the first thing I would think of when I saw the title myself. It is just that I have been feeling like hiding myself in the shadow of some mysterious material for a long time and I am not sure if I want to run away from it or not. Maybe some light might help. Or more shadow…..

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.

Actually, this woven E doesn’t really mean END. It’s someone’s alias. 😀
I got the initial weaving idea when we were in Wandlitz and made a prototype with scrap paper immediately. The surface of scrap paper was not appealing so I tried several materials and the recycled ribbon turns out to be the best among what I can get. Although it is still a little too shiny, it works o.k. with the bracelet from my college roommate. This bracelet is really not my type. I would prefer something with leather cord. Anyway, I am still looking for more suitable material for this.

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 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.

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.
