Summer bag

I sewed a summerly bag with 50 cm of embroidery fabric. and the bamboo handle.


There is a person who makes the bamboo handle in Japan, so every stores of handicrafts are sold. The handle can't be broken easily.

I cut the bottom roundly first. 丸く切るのに持ち手を利用、、

And how to make was written here in the pic. 
It clouds today, and a picture has become dark….

one pocket with a lining. The easy make :)

もうすぐ夏ですね!  Let's enjoy summer !

Double jacket

Hello dear knitters :)
I wish that you enjoying beautiful spring or autumn !

I received this Australian yarn timberandtwine on the day when it snowed.


The outside was cold,  I wanted to knit something warm.


First I draw a design, but that's a rough image.  Most makes alterations while knitting.
10 centimeters of buttonband starts from the collar on the design.
But when trying it on, it was cold..  so I changed it to up.

Back of jacket.

why the cat backed with me together...


I chose leather buttons, those match well.
and make a hole after knitting…. I don't know an English name of this buttonhole method.
beautiful hole doesn't open, but this is convenient.

My cat grew big like shoat.

Tokyo is warm already. 
I'm pleasant for autumn and winter coming after the hot summer !

Pottery market in Mashiko

We are in holiday of about 10 days, and went to a pottery market of Mashiko 益子 in Tochigi 栃木.

There is a lot of pottery kind in Japan.

Mashiko is  125 km on the Joban highway from Tokyo.
The market held consecutive holidays in May is very big, and it takes 1 day to see.


I forgot to take a picture of market …

The shade which repeated color many times is the feature for Mashiko pottery .


I bought….
Rice bowl. 500yen

Small vase ( H 10cm and 5cm) 400yen

Flowerpot 600yen


Mashiko pottery can be broken easily, so it's necessary to be careful.
Even if it doesn't go well for your dish, flowerpot or vase would be a fun gift for you :)

主人が真剣に花瓶を選んでいるのが意外でした。私は、植木鉢を見るのが楽しかったです。 機会があったら行ってみて下さいね
