As in umi no hi (Ocean Day).
A national holiday which brought us to the shore. It was really hot and we had a bit of wind.
The night before today I had, following a sudden inspiration, finished some cut out and half sewn owls that had been put away for around two years, I guess.
Gosh, I checked it, three and a half years! Time flies.
Should give us all hope that those UFOs we are hoarding might actually get finished one day :)
Hope you had/ are having a beautiful day!
PS: A pattern for the owls will be ready soon and I will publish it during this week.
It was only in late summer, months after we had moved here, that I noticed there is a spot not far from our home where one can see Mount Fuji from. On very clear days, which are not so often during the warmer seasons.
The reflection in the window could include Mount Fuji, yet today clouds were hiding the mountain.
Anyway, there's today's number seven.
Today went just the usual not as I planned and I did nothing else but packing. Craft books, knitting magazines. Sewing, too. Oh, those definitely did slow down the process of getting everything into the boxes... but I realized it would be better to hurry up and use the won time for knitting once I'm done. So I kept a few knitting magazines and also yarn which was packed today as well and hope I will find time for a new project in two weeks or so.
When we went to kindergarten this morning (without my camera) I noticed a little, very yellow primrose in a aluminum foil wrapped pot, oddly placed on the stairs in front of a house, looking somehow forlorn and kind of Japanese in its randomness. Loved it. Returned with my camera but by then it was gone.
But many other yellow things were discovered on my quick walk around the neighbourhood.
Since my days here around seem to be counted I feel I should get out more often again and look what's to be seen.
Today was sunny but cold due to strong spring winds which are typical for this time and really quite strong. Something most of the people here might have mentioned at least once today. I did, too, for the third time now.
In a front yard, but I am sure it just is what it is: two cups and a carpet. No one is supposed to sit down and have coffee here. Or tea.
I hope you have as much fun with these simple book covers as I have.
They are quick and easy to make and once you finished the first you wonder if there are more naked books that could use a nice dress...
