I finished making 2 new pouches~!
when I was making a gama pouch, I was very nervous because it was the last gama frame that I bought in Japan. Of course, I am planning to purchase some later, but it will be difficult since the shop doesn’t accept credit cards from abroad..???
I thought that the pouch looked perfect~... until I found scratches on the frame~! Ooooh, no--. I put fabric around the frame when I pinched it, but the fabric might have been too too thin for it. Mmmm, I will still add this pouch to my shop because it is very pretty, and all parts of this pouch were hand sewn. I hope that somebody will like it~.
Another pouch is made from USA vintage fabric for the most part. It looks very Spring-like, and a red bear girl & her REAL bear friend are so cute together. On the back side, you will see them together too, but in a matryoshka form. This pouch also will be in my shop tomorrow.
I’ve been watching Japan TV since the terrible earthquake hit Japan. I am so proud of the Japanese people who are enduring there.
When I was a child, I learned about earthquakes in school, and was trained for possible disaster. And when I was living there, I experienced many quakes. But this earthquake (M 8.8) is unimaginable... I have been feeling helpless in front of the TV set. Every time I hear the earthquake emergency alert (it is still happening very often) from the TV, I pray. I recalled my teacher’s voice, “Huge earthquakes will come, it is 100% certain. But we don’t know when.”
I called my mother yesterday morning when I found the news on the internet. My mother was fine, a little bit shaky because her area also shook very hard. I was worried about her because she is in a wheelchair, and she can only travel between her bed to her wheelchair, or to the toilet. For her, it is a tough thing to do. So, I just hoped that she didn’t have bad timing, and the earthquake came as just as she stood up. I want to call her again, but I learned that we all have to hold our calls if it isn’t an emergency.
I hope that we can at least understand the whole situation very soon... No more big ones, please...
