The ocean on a table

Finally! I have the ocean in our living room table. My mom is delighted to see her living room getting more color (besides my niece's toys that seem to claim every corner in the household). My father-in-law gave me some flat white stones when I visited them several weeks back. I've always been in love with crochet and the ocean too so crochet stones are just perfect because I can have both my loves together in one place.

I used to not like blue so much but unexpectedly I seeing more of it. Even the lamp I recently bought is blue when I could have chosen for black. If I couldn't have a hut by the ocean now, why not bring the ocean to my home?

Granny squares and that Muji notebook

I think I do best by getting personal with my crafts and taking photos of them. I was kind of lost and wasn't sure I wanted to keep the blog title. I'll decide about the blog URL later. Good thing is that I never stopped crafting. So here I am finally really talking about crafts again.

At my mom's home I found my old stash of yarns. Though I could not think of a project for every kind of yarn I found, it made sense to create granny squares from all the leftover acrylic yarns. The shades of blues and neutrals seem to work well together.

Meanwhile, I crocheted several small purses as tokens to some friends. On this special one I decided to create a big one to fit a personalized Muji notebook. The Muji store always intimidated me until my Singaporean friend and I decided to spend my last night in Singapore in the Japanese store. So that night I stamped away. Much later, I decided to add more scribbles. I mean, how could I not?
