Now I am back from the trip ...

I am back from the trip to Europe. After being away nearly a month, it's good to be home again. We visited London, Paris, Vienna, and Salzburg and had expected Salzburg the coldest but strangely it turned out it was Paris that gave us the most freezing experience. Actually there was virtually no snow in Vienna and Salzburg although we brought our snow boots with us even though they took a lot of space in our suitcases.

We enjoyed the operas, operettas, symphony orchestra, and Cirque du Soleil and bought some interesting and useful things and some not so interesting and not so useful things. One of the useful things we bought was a mug; a tall white mug with pink roses. A pale pink rose on the front and another rose in deep pink on the back and a small bud on inside and a much smaller bud on the handle and bottom respectively. We found it in Salzburg but it is an English bone chine, well, who cares what you buy in where, they are all European Union, right? Anyway it's a really beautiful mug; I fell in love in its shape firstly and roses design secondly.
I have a lot to tell you about and please come back soon. Thank you.

First Post in 2009

Traditionally, the first sewing has been making thimbles in Japan although there are few people nowadays who observe such tradition. Since I am on holiday in Europe and I haven't brought my sewing basket with me, there is no way I can make my own thimble here. So this is the one I created before our departure to Europe.

Thank you for reading my blog and I wish you all a happy and prosperous new year.
