The violets from my last post are now at home on a tiny crocheted basket, complete with a crocheted mini beaded egg. I did this little ensemble quickly, and it’s not without flaws, but the concept is promising. I might try another idea like this, and plan the details a lot more carefully. I used Daiso #20 crochet thread, some glass seed beads (not the Miyuki beads – those will appear in another project), and a bit of stuffing for the egg.
I have really enjoyed making tiny stuff lately! You may see more miniatures coming from me in future posts. I hope to share some how-to’s, as well, when I make time to focus on that.
Since I work from home these days, I’ve been able to lavish extra time on my dear dog, Bodhi. I worry that he will be disappointed when things return to normal, and I go back to a regular teaching schedule. For now, he is overjoyed to have me around. We’re out in the forest a lot, these days. I’ve attached a video sample of yesterday’s outing:
Crafting is going well, but slower as I prepare my student’s upcoming mid-term exams. In my next post, I’ll share the current status of the Spice Market mandala, a scarf, and another new project I just started.
I also pulled out a favorite article I made last year, the Summer Diamonds kimono, and wore it on our walk. I love the freedom of short-sleeve weather! I’d really like to make another one of these this year. What color do you think would be a nice one? Bright pink? White? It’s a free pattern at One Dog Woof, and so easy to make, as it is one piece and has no buttons – you can see it up-close, below:
So glad you stopped by! I’ll leave you with a view of a typical Korean lunch: bibimbap and several side dishes (called “banchan”). See you again soon!

Ahh that tiny little basket is so cute. And I’m sure all of our pets are enjoying the extra time with their humans. Hope you’re staying safe!
