A dozen green apples

My favorite fabric market never ceases to provide me with fun fabrics that are begging to be turned into something. So what did I do with this hot glue gun and green apple extravaganza?

Why I made a bag for my yoga mat. That's what.

It even has a little cinch at the top to hold my pretty pink mat in there tight.

(Of course that is my ultimate fabric find in the background.)

Making things is my ultimate stress release. I get so focused I can't think about anything else. Korea has given me an endless plethora of crafting options, and I've gotten elbows deep into it. It's amazing.

Currently listening to: Hills and Valleys, The Rocket Summer.

I need these for the opera house.

We went there this weekend to see the Choi Trio (three amazing, young, talented ladies who can play the piano, violin, and cello like nobody's business). We sat in the nosebleed seats and I would have rocked the house with old school opera glasses. I wonder where in Korea I can find them...

The summer is quickly coming to an end and there is still so much to do! Sorry to those I've been missing on Skype so much lately. Once the weather turns, I'll be home on the weekends more :) (maybe).

Currently listening to: Cello Suite No. 1, Bach.

Look Dad!

After a scavenger hunt for the ingredients, I attempted my Dad's famous no bake cookies. While I didn't achieve quite the perfection, they are awfully close. I'm quite pleased.

Currently listening to: Waltz (Better than Fine), Fiona Apple.

Warm sand on my toes.

The South Pacific is an amazing place in the world.

Quiet. Mostly untouched. Glorious. And I barely scratched the surface. There are a hundred other islands waiting for me.

Currently listening to: First Train Home; Imogen Heap.
