Monday Ritual

Hope you guys had a good start of the week. Mine was busy. It was the first day of Spring Break. And the boy is sick at home. And grumpy. You know what I mean.

after running errands, i sat down and had to do my monday ritual. felt centered again...

Sew & Tell - Cherie's Nani Iro Top

It's been a while since my last post all together, not to mention Sew & Tell. But, here it is. The very first one this year. I meant to post this sew-along thing called Project Run & Play after learning from Cherie earlier this year. She participated it and actually won a prize for the boy outfit. How exciting is that? I didn't know she was such a tailor. I knew she makes rather simpler dresses and skirts for her little girl, Yuki, but she even makes detailed jackets and pants. Very impressive! She continued to sew something special for Yuki after the sew-along, and this Nani Iro top is my favorite. This material keeps amazing me. And you. It is lovely. Thanks Cherie for sharing.

Well, hello March. My cover photo was ready to be uploaded this morning, but I was having a tech problem and waiting for my tech guys to fix this. Well, maybe by tomorrow morning, maybe, maybe...

So March has started with a bit of rain in the city, and it was pretty nice besides the fact that it was freezing cold. A perfect day to stay in and relax at home for lucky people, not me :-( Do you enjoy incense? I do. On my day offs, I usually fire it up after cleaning the house and sit down with my tea. Enjoying both the clean home and mellow fragrance in the air. I'm not a big fan of perfumes in general (especially cheesy ones), but nature-inspired fragrances are something that relaxes me.

here is something new in the shop. incense from japan! these have clean, light, and classy fragrances that I love.
