Chasing winter blues...

keeping busy with some craft work.



While back at the thrift store I came upon this set labelled "Japanese Tenugui" and, I bought it because I liked the cotton material.  Once home, I googled to find out what "Tenugui" meant, and found out that they are a type of  Japanese hand towels.
You can read more about http://japan-magazine.jnto.go.jp/en/1310_tenugui.html here.

The set contained, three printed cotton pieces in different sizes. I used the material to sew this bag.


I added a lining, hand sewed the details around the patterns to add texture, then used the machine to sew the two panels together.

Day one ..of ..January...

Watering can pincushion...

A small craft project done during the holidays;
What you think of this watering can make-over? I got the tin can for 0.99 cents from the thrift store.
I filled it almost to the top with rice first, so it will be sturdy and, then added polyfil stuffed body.


It is sitting next to the wheelbarrow, I made few months ago. May be I will find other garden tools to make a whole collection :)


Thank you for stopping over ...hope you are having a wonderful day,


everything stops for a sweet cup of tea !!



till next time,
