You may have noticed yet another change in my blog. Thanks to the wonderful Michelle, you can now see what i'm up to. That, plus i will hold myself accountable to doing these projects, some of which that have been sitting around unloved for months now!
For instance, i love using cloth pads for my overnight needs. And for the past year, i've been relying on a mere 1 pad. So, i'm making a few. In the winter, it's easy to use just one because i can use the radiator to dry them, but in the summer, no such luck. Is this too much info? Anyway, it's wonderful to use cloth pads - for my health, the environment, and the connection to my body that i get. There are some great sites that tell you how to do it yourself here and here. I follow my own pattern, but these are helpful.
I found a great site to order those lovely Japanese craft books but they come from Korea. I think i put an order in (something happened to my computer what i was ordering. I'm crossing my fingers it worked). But, since shipping costs so much, I am determined to find me some lovely books. I read somewhere that there are supposed to be a couple of places to get them in Toronto. I went out to the boonies yesterday (i had the car so i wasn't too frustrated) and they had no books! Grr. It's a great place though, so if i want to take classes in Japanese culture like Ikebana, cooking classes, or language classes, i can.
Since i had the car, i went to a yet undiscovered (by me) Value Village thriftstore. I found some great things! Very excited, especially with the sewing box. I think i need to be more organized so that i'm inspired to do my stuff. I also picked up some musical shakers (drawing a blank on their real name, it's the morning!) that i collect for my music therapy work, some more tea cup saucers, a handmade pitcher and plate pottery set, some ceramic bowls, and a great flat bed sheet for fabric.
Have a great weekend everyone! It's sunny and warm here, a perfect day for a march.
