Mandalas

Thanks to all who have been purchasing from my shop. Every sale brings a smile to my face. πŸ™‚

I’ve listed all of my washi tape in my shop, until the next batch comes in. The cute strawberry tape that I mentioned in a previous post has already been sold out, but there are plenty of other cute styles still available.

Currently I’m focusing on uploading more vintage fabric. I absolutely love this cat fabric. I’m guessing it might be from the early 80s.

I took a small break from my granny square blanket to pick out all of my yarn scraps and finally make some mandalas.

They are super easy to make. I used Lucy’s pattern for these ones, and I plan on trying out the other patterns she listed as well.

Just wanted to end this post with something I’ve been excited about. I pre-ordered this phone case from Jlist.com back in late December/early January. It wasn’t released until April, and just a few days ago I finally received it after it had traveled all the way from Japan. I just love the design and the color combos. It matches my pink iPhone 5c quite well, too! πŸ™‚

 

Rainbows

My granny stripe blanket is finished!Β  Once the weather is better (not that I’m complaining about the rain… I love it), I will take some pictures in the natural light. I just love the way it looks on my couch… I could stare at it for hours! 8D

I’ve already started on another blanket. This time I’ve decided to do a giant granny square with a rainbow color scheme. I love how quickly this pattern works up.

I’m using some of the brightest Stylecraft DK colors I have. It’s definitely going to make a statement, ha ha! I am using lipstick, matador, sunshine, citron, bright green, green, cloud blue, aster, grape, and fiesta. Some of the colors did not come out right on my camera (the bright green, for example, looks like spring green!).

This past week I’ve been busy listing bunches of more fabric in my shop, a lot of it vintage, like this 70s fabric in the picture above. I have much more to list, including some cute stationery items in the next week or so, and I’m very excited. πŸ™‚

I’ve also created a Facebook page. I’ll be posting some coupon codes for my shop pretty soon! x

Updates

More rain is heading our way this week and I am nice and cozy with my rainbow granny stripe blanket and a cup of warm green tea as I type out this blog post.

I am very much a collector of many different types of fabric. It’s hard to resist the urge to buy cute prints and bright colors and dream about all of the different types of projects I could make with it.

The pictures above are some of my favorites that I just listed on Etsy. I absolutely love this fabric… it reminds me of walking by all of the pretty yukata shops in the spring/summer when I lived in Tokyo.

I still have bunches of paper ephemera to list, and in the next few weeks I’ll have more stationery, including stickers and washi tape.

Isn’t this just the cutest card? It’s from the 1940s-50s, I believe. I want to frame it and hang it up in my office. x
