My friend Tomoka recently returned to her hometown of Nagoya, Japan from Buffalo. We spent 3 lovely, ice-cream filled years together here as grad students, and I am really sad that she's gone. Once she got back, Tomoka sent us a package filled with information about visiting her in Japan, which we intend to do soon. She also enclosed two Hello Kitty buttons in the package. I decided to use them as adornments on the potholders I made for her as a housewarming gift since she just moved into a new apartment. So these particular Hello Kitties came from Japan, spent about 3 weeks in the U.S., and are now on their return flight.
I don't know what's prompting it but I find I've been sewing a lot lately. My newest obsession is making knitting needle/crochet hook holders. I'm sure I'll post about those in the coming days.
