My gifts for Corrina

My friends' favour are always inspirations for my works. My good friend Corrina
adores chicken. She loves my felted boxes. I promised to do something with it. I made a needle felted hen, 7 eggs and 2 mushrooms. Without reveal what it looks, I mailed it over to England. Corrina just received the felted box and the holder of hen. She said they're nice and loves them very much, though I found the holder of hen looks odd. My friends are very supportive to my crafts and encourage me to do something on it. I'm going to offer a needle class for the "Dreamed Land". This is mine, wandering sheep, mushrooms and a small house.

New member of the family

All to my surprise, my daughter Jasmine bought a Chinchilla kitten without letting me know beforehand. She called him Mogi, now 2 months old. We’ve already a 3-year BTS Tiger, he’s a gorgeous and naughty boy. We adore him very much. He’s the king of the family. I told Jasmine we already have Tiger, he brings us laugh and fun. It’s no good to have one more pet. I asked Jasmine if she still love Tiger. She said she wanted to have Mogi it doesn’t mean she didn’t love Tiger anymore. Just like parents already have a son they want to have another baby doesn’t mean they don’t love the first one any more.

Well, last Fri, she brought Mogi home. We put him temporarily in Tiger’s cage for separation. Tiger’s angry, hostile and stares at Mogi. We dare not let them closer and have to see how it goes on.

Mogi is adorable, curious and wants to play whenever he’s allowed to run around. We love both Tiger and Mogi.


知道會有第二隻寵物時 ,我問Jasmine是否不愛家中已3歲的英短Tiger,Tiger實在已很可愛,每日帶給我們歡樂,我不想分薄他的愛。Jasmine說不是那回事,她仍是很疼Tiger的。正如父母生下第一個孩子,他很快樂的成長,父母決定要第二名孩子,那並不表示父母不愛第一個孩子。 前天Mogi進駐了Tiger的家,Tiger第一眼已經很敵對,籠子、玩具被佔用了,有點兒失落,我們安撫Tiger並不時分隔他們,幾天後待他們融和才讓他們接近。Mogi很活潑,實在又很可愛,我們會對他及Tiger一樣疼愛。

Wool felted book cover

The other day my colleague Wendy asked me to show her how to make a wet felted wool picture. The reason was her teenage daughter Winkie has a school project to do a book cover with fabric materials. Popped up her mind was to make it with wool. Without hesitation I took a lunch break in the office demonstrated to Wendy the process, so that she could give Winkei the ideas and let her do it by herself. All finished in a weekend . See how it looks like. The book is very impressive and the teacher gave Winkie the highest full mark 10. I’m really delighted Wendy is so clever to pick up felt making which is new to her and Winkie is so talented and made it such creatively. See how pretty it is - "Cats looking forward to ....... " Each page with Bible verses and pictures show how it’s made. Love to share with you all…. What I want to do is also to spread the arts/craft of felt making – such a versatile medium. Wool ! Cool.…. I love you !!

Teacher's remarks "Unbelievable" Full score 10 !

同事Wendy的女兒 Winkie學校老師指定一研習項目,要學生各人做一本以布料為封面的本子,Wendy想起我會做羊毛氈畫,於是我用了一個午膳時間,很快的教曉Wendy如何制作,她回家把過程示範一次並以Winkie 自己的點子創意做了這本子,看,好漂亮啊!"草原上一對貓貓等待著 ...... " 每頁以圖片介紹制作過程並附以聖經金句,老師很欣賞Winkie的創意並給予最高的評分 - 十分。高興之餘,我很希望宣揚這可塑性甚高的羊毛工藝啊!

Each page with photo shows how the book was made

Wool felt workshops

Ran a few felt making workshops these days. It's really enjoyable to share with people who're also interested in this kind of craft. See how they're doing it.

Amy's doing the laying. After an hour, wondering sheep coming out.

They're making flower brooches.

Hey, see the finished brooch. It goes well.
