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. 🙂

I have to say the summer in this city is the best time of the year although it is usually short. Mr. Y and I had a conversation about favorite seasons. Then, I realize my favorite is 1/2 summer + 1/2 fall. That is the end of summer and the beginning of fall. The beginning of summer is nice as well, but I don’t like spring so much.

This is a delayed entry again. There is a conflict between my camera and the latest fedora kernel so I have to switch to Windows to import my pictures. That’s just not something I want to do after 6 hours of classes in some freezing cold classrooms (8+ hours at school) everyday. The professor managed to find us some new rooms for the classes. However, the new ones are still too cold. The whole building is like a fridge. We have to wear our coats during the classes.
