I did today’s post at work, very slow day. I learned some very simple origami folds and made a box, a bird, a coat, and a pinwheel.
We worked on this for a half hour tonight, but now it is bed time. Hopefully we’ll finish tomorrow.
Today’s TAD is to begin a die-cut paper project that I bought years ago at Heavenly Soles (R.I.P.) Iti s completly cheesy and fun. It is the Mexican Peck box crank toy. Mike and I worked on it for half-an-hour
This is an UnFinished Object from last year. Two-color, felt coasters in two flower patterns with contrasting color stitching. I got the pattern from the great Zakka Sewing book. It is one of my favorite DIY books.
for today’s Thing-A-Day I finished the brioche in a loaf. It might be a little ugly, but it is sweet, butter, eggy bread goodness and I am very happy. It made breakfast yummier.
This is one of our favorite ways to make chicken soup taste a little like spring. We put sliced cherry tomatoes, spinach and peas at the bottom of the bowl, then
I am ending on a beginning. While in Kyoto this winter I went to a monthly flea market at the Toji temple where I found some amazing silk pieces to turn into a skirt. I bought 2 orange and 2
Wow! Another day is done. I made a word wall in the classroom today. I made refried beans and an enchilada bake tonight, and I worked on the sleeve in between. I often feel like I don’t get much done
Another day is done and so are some of the things I wanted to do. I made another batch of banana nut crumb muffins. This time I froze half of them. They turned out scrumptious. I also finished the bread
Another day of making finished! I took my bike in for a tune-up, got a helmet, lights, and oiled things up. The bike was a gift from a friend who was leaving. It rides well, but is a bit rusty
Still feeling the effects of this cold, but I was able to finish embroidering the design today. It took three tries until I got the stitch I wanted. I tried a stem stitch, a split stitch, and settled on a
It was a busy day today. I worked on the top half of the Veda robot and made a friend muffins for their birthday. Now I’m off to bed. See ya tomorrow!
Oh I had the nastiest sinus thing yesterday. I came home early, ate ramen and napped. Unfortunately Mike had to work the full day and had school functions after work, so I was on my own. After a good nap I
We had a friend over for dinner today, made rissotto with mushrooms. I pretty much just added on to the rye starter and finished the loaf I began yesterday. I would feel guilty, but it was great to spend that
I’ve been studying Korean for about a year now. Last year we were getting ready to move here and I was learning the alphabet, now I am learning to read and write sentences with Kumon books. I decided to
Things were so crazy here the last few days that I didn’t post so I could spend more time making and keeping it together. At school I was preparing from-scratch materials for “winter camp.” I switched that out on working
I worked on the vd present at work today, then went to a teacher dinner after work so I only got to work on this for an hour today. I like hand sewing, but I think I could have accomplished
personality I am zonked. I had to wake up at work time today and my schedule is off. Desk warming has resumed. While desk warming I worked on a vd present for my nampeyong, but I won’t say what for
Today was a busy day. We began the day by turning day two’s small loaf of bread into french toast. The eggs in Korea have bright orange yolks and very tight whites. They make excellent custard. We don’t have treats
I’m almost finished with the bunny. Today I finished putting his body together and began his ears. I will still need to stuff and seam him, attach the ears, and design his face. He is super cute. I did today’s
It is almost time for the sweet potatoe’s birthday. I’m sad I can’t be there for the event but I hope to help make it as joyful as possible. Today I made a paper chain for her to count down
Day two is coming to an end in South Korea. Today I made bread and “double-stitched” the front panel of the bunny. I worked in restaurants for 11 years, but that ended in 2000. I’ve only baked bread professionally, with professional
