The quilt for my friend.



I completed the quilt for my friend which I was working on, the last weekend. I have just sent it out yesterday. I hope she will like it.

I was going to make a blue quilt for her before I started to make this. I can never expect what happen next during I have been collecting fabrics for it. The color combination is often changed depends on collected fabrics, this procedure is fun indeed. I have a lot of stock of fabrics in my sewing room. But still I cannot stop to buy new fabrics, and I believe this is very common among people who makes quilts. Even if you don't use the fabric soon, I am sure the time to use the fabric will come. I just don't know when it is. I have heard from many quilters, "I finally used the fabric which I bought 10 years ago!" Depends on what quilt you are going to make.

I wanted to describe Japanese taste with western fabrics. Do you feel something Japanese taste from this quilt??

The size of this quilt is almost twin, cotton 100% batting, machine quilted and hand bided. This was a lot of fun work, always happy to work for my friends :-)

Making Drapes



I started to make drapes for the window-door which is located near by the rabbit cage. I take care of 7 rabbits now. My husband put together 2 big cages for his rabbits long time ago. One is in the basement, and one (4 stories) is in the family room. When he had only 2 rabbits, they used to use the basement cage as a bed room, and the family room one is used as play-land in daytime. The family room one is near by the window-door in order to get them sunshine, but it makes them to be cold in night time, even we cover the cage with blankets.

My husband and I went to Wal-mart to buy thick drapes, but they are so expensive and we didn't see any enough thick one as we expected. Therefore, I thought I could make "quilt drapes". I completed one of them, and maybe I need to modified it a little, then I will make other one. I hope this drapes keep my rabbits warm.

New Rabbits.



I got 2 more new rabbits the last Saturday. I take care of 7 rabbits totally now.
The last Thursday, the rabbit organization telephoned my husband and asked him to take care of 2 small rabbits. They were thrown away being put in a box, and then..., a car hit the box. One of them got injured the back-bone and can't move the back legs anymore. How people can do this? Why people can't think what will happen next to this small animals after they threw away? What if people was thrown away like they did? There shouldn't be any enough reason to throw them away. It's unbelievable.

I heard, when the injured rabbit -- her name is RingRing -- was brought to a vet, most of people expected to put her euthanasia. However, her encourage for alive stopped people to think about it. She moves fast by using only front legs, come to get food by herself, she does everything by herself to alive except for elimination.

My days became very busy more since these 2 rabbits came, and I have to give up to join one of the English class. I can't leave my home many hours as well.

Animal teach me many things. They give me unconditional love, and I give them it also. This is very comfortable.
