I first started cross stitching when I was in 6th grade when my mom brought a bunch of patterns and thread.
Not too long ago, I found boxes of thread that my mom had neatly organized. I thought we'd lost them after several moves, but there they were, waiting for a comeback.
I went to different libraries and Barnes & Noble to find some patterns and I cannot keep my hands off them since.
It hurts my wrist, neck, and shoulders but I just can't get over the feeling of getting lost in them.
Recently. I've been also teaching myself how to do embroidery.
I've got to frame a few of the finished ones but I am not sure where to hang them... That's another project in itself.
Anyhow, I'm working on potted plants these days and can't wait to finish them!

Cray-pas! The symbol of Asian childhood. I got these last year when I went to Korea.
When I opened the box, the smell made me immediately plunge into the nostalgia of my childhood. They are kind of like oil pastels but much cheaper and less gritty.
I played around with the cray-pas a bit and it was just like I remembered.

It's been 6 years since Milou came into my life.
Sometimes, I just feel the happiest laying next to her facing each other and staring into her doggy eyes.
And other times, I realize how much white hair she has around her face. At those times, I want to ignore the fact that she's getting older. But I know she'll always be my little baby.

Couple days ago, I got to see lunar eclipse. This one was particularly cool since the moon was tinted in red -- not that special or rare, according to NASA.
I got to use telefoto lens to shoot this but the weather wasn't too forgiving as clouds kept covering the moon.
Supposedly, there is another one in 6 month so I will keep my fingers crossed for clear sky.
Universe is awesome.
