A package from Japan




I received a package from Japan which was sent by my friend. She sometimes send me many Japanese goods, foods, snacks and so on. I appreciate her very much. This time, she enclosed the 2 Japanese quilting books, a magazine, and Japanese fabric! She also likes to do some handmade work, so she said she enjoyed the books before sending me.

The last time I send her something in return, I enclosed a drawstrings bag. She was happy about it, and told me she loves handmade things. So I decided to make a quilt for her. I hope she will like it. The quilt is the largest size for me to make, it's just a twin size though.

This morning (>_<)




This morning, I noticed I could not connect to the Internet when I was checking my e-mail. I thought it must be from browser problem first, but it clicked right away. The first thing I do every morning is to open the door of the rabbit cage. I have the keeping of 2 rabbits. One goes to everywhere, nothing can stop him! and other one bite anything! I call them "DESTROYERS". The picture shows the telephone code that was bitten by him (His name is Jeb), and other picture shows the 2 rabbits. The front one is Jeb, the back one is Susie. She is a large size of rabbit.
I fixed the telephone code for temporaly. I was wondering if it works or not, but I can buy new one if it didn't work. Anyway, it's working as I am using Internet now. I have to ask my husband to fix it perfectly. He would mad at me :-(


This quilt is "Monster quilt"(44"-62"). The monsters are my original. I listed it up on my Esty shop and then my friend found it, and bought it! I was surprised and appreciate at the same time.
A while later, I received one message from someone who liked the monster quilt. The message suggested me to make a twin size quilt with this design. Although, I can not make the same one because I don't have the same fabric, but I can make similar one. I hope someone again like the twin size quilt which I started to make.

Oh, I make quilts in my sewing room that my rabbits can never come. I mention this just in case.

Lap Rabbit



This is one of my rabbit "SOU". I have 5 rabbits, 3 are my (my husband) own, and other 2 are rescued. One of 2 rescued rabbit was left in front of a vet, and other one was found in a field. My husband was asked by one rabbit organization to take care of them temporaly. I guess temporaly could be forever. They are so.... active as I can understand why the last owner gave up to take care of them :-( They are becoming part of my family though.

When SOU came to my home an year and 4 months ago, he was very agressive and trying to be in charge among other rabbits. His personarily was changed since he got neuterd.

Most of male rabbits are so agressive as they fight with other male terribly as it's hard to believe that this cute animal make such a terrible fight. And they spray pee to show other rabbits "This is my property! Here is my territory!", yes..., for marking.

I love to let them run in the family room and play with them. They use litter box to eliminate like a cat does. I always want to touch and to hold, to kiss, to pet them. But unfortunately most of rabbits don't like to get done. Especially they hate to get hold. It's probabry because rabbits are located in the bottom of food chain. To be held means to be eaten to them.


SOU is turning to be a " lap rabbit" which the one always want to be held, want to be touched. When I pet his head, he closes his eyes, doesn't move and push his head toward me to get pet more. He looks so comfortable. And when I hold him, he even licks me. So adorable! He bit my quilt though(>_<)!!


(-->) This is the oldest rabbit "Simone". She loves to get pet, but hate to get hold :-(

I really wish other 3 rabbits could become like SOU. Other 3 always try to run away from me when they thought I am trying to catch them :-(

I have 2 cats in Japan. My mother takes care of them. I thought I am a cat person, but rabbits are also enough adorable to live together. I have to be more carefully to take care of them though..., and there is not a good doctor for rabbits around here (probabry anywhere). This is very serious problem for rabit owners.
