Thank you so much for your continuous congrats
for my engagement and great advice for wedding
planning. I've received really nice things from
many of people I love to celebrate us. Among them,
an engagement ring and a wedding ring from
my mother-in-law-to-be are so special that,
when I held them for the first time, my heart
was pounding and my hands were literally shaking.
It was not until a few moments later when the fact
hit me that something so precious for so many
people I love have just passed onto me.
These beautiful rings used to belong to Joe's great
grandmother Mitha who Joe's mom describes as someone
who resembles me in a lot of ways. She was a quiet
and cheerful person who was into all sorts of craft.
These rings must be such treasure for Joe's family.
I wasn't sure for a while whether I deserve to
own such precious treature, but I decided to trust
Joe's family's nice judgment.
These are now belonged to me.
When I told about the rings to my Mom in Japan
over the phone, I could tell she was a little in tears.
My parents think I am the luckiest girl and I agree.
Let's now get back to crafty talk ;)
I worked on lots of lots of logcabin patterns
so you may feel either bored or dizzy,
but please bare with me because I think
they turned out so much fun.
I know I've made so many things with this theme.
I have a largest selection of pink fabric, so
I get thrilled to make things that allow me to
use lots of pink fabrics.
I've noticed the other day that the most items I've
created for custom-orders involved logcabin,
so I started to believe that my niche might be
logcabin. Or could it simply be that it's so plausible
I enjoy working on logcabin that folks have been nice
and supportive to let me work on it???
I don't know.. The only thing I know
is that I truly enjoy teeny tiny logcabin!
Along with the pink potholder, these 6
coasters will travel to Venezuela. None of
my items have made it to the country before,
so I am really excited.
Thinking about my handmade items being used
and loved by someone in different countries that
I've never been to makes me delighted.
It's like parts of me traveling on my behalf.
My pieces of craft have made to lots of
places in America, Japan, most European
countries, and some Asian counties including
Singapore and Australia.
Every time I write down the address on the package
that I would love to visit, I get a little jealous
of my items being able to travel there.
One day, I want to travel to all over the world.
And since it will take me a while to be able to
do that, I hope that parts of me, my handmade
pieces will travel to many countries for me until then.
Thank you for taking your time to stop by
to read such a long post!
Have a great rest of Sunday!
