Of Punch Bowls and Sheep...

Hope you had a good weekend, our was great. Managed to get quite a bit in without running round like headless chickens, which is always a plus. So Saturday we did our weekly shop. A new supermarket opened recently and their range of fruit and veg is much better than our usual store. We are still being careful about buying from the affected areas so it is great to have a bit more choice.

Daddy Ebi had bought tickets for him and Ebi-kun to go and see the football, so I went into town with them, had a lovely lunch together and then I went a did a bit of shopping. I was looking for face paint when I came across this great punch bowl set. I think it was old stock they were trying to get of since they had marked all the pieces individually and everything was reduced. The whole lot cost me less than ¥1000 and this was in Loft! (those is Japan will know that Loft isn't cheap!) 
Ebi-kun just keeps saying "I can't believe you found something so cool"


I got home and had intended to just do some sewing but I got side-tracked and ended up on Skype, helping a friend with her website and then I got some sewing done. This little fella popped into my head the other day and I have been itching to make him. I am pretty much in love with him but his ears need working on, not quite right.


Actually, I'm not sure if it is a girl or a boy and I haven't come up with a name yet. What would you call him/her?

  1. I've never really been into the whole skulls and skeletons thing, but I must admit, that punch bowl is pretty darn cool.
    The sheep is gorgeous. Sorry, I can't think of a clever name for him (he's definitely a him, that much I know). I might ask my nine-year-old - she has a knack for naming her soft toys.
