Hi girls.
Long time no writing on LJ.
Thanks for your e-mails worrying about me.
Those warm e-mails made me smile! :D

Sorry if you still didn't know
that I moved to http://jade-of-kamakura.blogspot.com/

I'm so happy now as one of pal just e-mailed me
that my etsy shop is ranked as top 26!
Okay, see you at my other blog!

what I've made for the month - no.2 Oct. 18th, 2005 @ 01:28 pm

The next one is a tote for kids.
When we went to a nice zakka shop here in Tokyo,
my daughter really liked a certain bag.
That one was too big for her as she's only 2 yrs old!!
So I changed the measurement to be fit for smaller kids.
Now she takes this bag with her to anywhere she goes!

But you know what?
I also use the bag!!
I put my cell phone, my small wallet and my car key in it to go out.
Very practical, eh?

what I've made for the month - no.1 Oct. 18th, 2005 @ 01:26 pm

These two bags are for three-year-old birthday present
to my friend's son, Ocean.
The bigger bag is for his library books.
I got the fabric from the big island of Hawaii.
Very bright and beautiful fabric and it's one of my favorite!

what we found on walking Oct. 13th, 2005 @ 12:26 pm

The other day, we spent time together at my mom's house on weekends.
There's a big city park on the back side of her house,
so it's our walking spot in the morning with two doggies.

This time, we found small "autumn" stuffs to take home.
I stored small pine cones in a glass jar in our bathroom,
and Jade uses acorns for her playing house.

Goodies from the nature!!

my bread Oct. 12th, 2005 @ 10:01 am
I start baking for our breakfast again.
During the summer, I stopped it as it was so hard to control fermentation
due to the high temperature and humidity.
Now it's autumn and my husband and daughter were pushing me to start again.

We had a three-day-weekends as Monday was a national holiday,
and here's the photo from Monday's breakfast.

We all love rolls with wheat germ.
I cooked red apples with butter, sugar and cinnamon to go with rolls.
And I served fresh grapes, too.

I bake with my gas-oven and Kitchen Aid.
Both are good partners to enjoy baking!
Without them, I have to manage lots of works...

» kawaii things from Japan
The other day, one of my co-workers brought this sweets to our office.
They were so cute!

She and her boyfriend bought these "omanjyu" in Tochigi Pref.
There's a special training school for motorcycle policemen there,
and that's why a motorcycle policeman was drawn on omanjyu.

Here's another one.
Expo 2005 in Aichi has ended the other day.
This was the trademark of it,
Morizo & Kikkoro.

But a friend of mine showed me the other one.

Can you see the difference?
We all laughed so hard!
So cute and funny!!
» another stitch work
I stitched my initial 'K' onto a pure linen napkin.
Doesn't it looks so nice with beautiful designed letter?
I got this pattern from a friend of mine who loves cross stitching.
Just love it!

» framed cross-stitching work
This was a request from a friend of mine as a baby shower gift.
The left one is her order, and the right one is for myself.
Both are 'K', but looks totally different!

» my Japanese pottery work

After working 2 years in Europe, I returned to Japan in April 1999.
Right after that, I got hooked in pottery making.
Those Japanese traditional pottery is so beautiful.
Very simple design but lots of beauty inside.
And I wanted to try to make them by myself.

I joined 3-day pottery-making camping in the famous pottery town of Mashiko, Tochigi.
There each person created his/her own work using pottery's wheel.

All of my works are designed to use for our everyday life.
Not just for special occasions.
So I made it very simple way.
We eat rice, miso-soup, salad, curry-rice and so on with my bowls and plates at home.
The touching feeling is really nice,
you feel 'earth' with it.

I'd love to join another camping lesson
one day with my child...
Kids can create better than we adults do as their ideas are so fresh and flexible, I guess.
» what I wanna buy now ....
That's another new digital camera.
Now I have Konica-Minolta DiMAGE X 20.
I bought this about 2 yrs ago because I liked the color, Snow White.
And this camera was really small and light.

But now I want something different!
Now I'm thinking of this one, EOS Kiss by Canon.
It looks so cool with professional features!

What kinds of digital camera do you have at the moment?
And do you wanna get new one, and which one you want??
