Snow Attack!! 白雪攻擊!!

Second, I want to share with you my love to this nature +" snow"!

I never see or touch snow in my life. It's winter again! I know probably this year I will now be able to see the snow . I felt that I have been attached by the image of snow_The fantasy of white snow world has been constructed in my mind silently. I can't help drawing them on all my sketches.

Above are my sketches of planters and iceland.

One more thing for the love of S N O W _ An Icelandic movie called
Nói albino.

I hope I make sense here with my very random thoughts
and also

Have a wonderful winter day with or without snow!


Shop update tomorrow night (2007.11.27)!!

I made some gift tags to give away! not satisfied with them, have to re print them again!


Made with 100% love

There were 3 birthday parties in 2 days, and I was non stop weaving before and between the parties. In one of party I was so worried about the other unfinished scarf... yes, I'm totally exhausted now. But nothing happier than seeing their surprising and satisfing expressions on their faces. Wishing them a "warm" winter!!

I have to clean up the mess I created over the weekend!



I have been working on sketches for prints. I had a lot of things in mind and always interrupted by some new ideas . I was doing 6 different ones at the same time. I drove myself CRAZY..... So I think maybe it's good time to focus on only one at a time.

I like fall! (It's more like fall here ) I love the air, the light in my room and those falling leaves. So Wonderful!


New things

Yes, I bought a loom!!

It was a table loom but Baba turned it into a floor loom. I also did my first project with this loom, a scarf for CL_ a belated birthday gift . I used 100% alpaca and 100%wool. I just wash it and it become so fluffy (even more soft now). The gray parts also stand out now.

mmm, What should I do for next one??

I'm totally in love with their projects now. Here is their interview with PING MAG.


Tsurukichi at tortoise!!

We saw this indigo hand die textile show in Tortoise and I bought this hand die cotton yarn. Somehow I didn't take any pictures of the show, I guess I was so amazed by what I saw there. The hand die yard look like " live creature" to me.... they look like they are part of nature.

I found some more pictures about it thru internet.

This book really makes me happy!!

The most interesting chapters are

I probably can't share the new book with you today!! We are going to meet the photographer for CL's project in Venice this morning.

I think you will enjoy the works from these two young Japanese designers, don't forget to check their illustrations.


Follow the light!

One of nicest thing to live in LA is the enormous light and airy spaces. I wish I can follow the light whole day just like cats, but I can't move my desktop computer around the house!

One more book to share tomorrow! stay tuned!!
