Today is a pizza day.

It’s raining and I’m tired. Time to call Pizza Hut.

I learned today that the traditional kanzashi for August is pampas grass. I guess I shouldn’t be making things like this. Heh- heh.:

It’s the first kanzashi that I’ve made with silk. I love how it turned out, but goodness was it hard to work with. It didn’t seem to want to keep its shape. I think I’ll have to invest in some potato or rice starch for these fabrics.

I actually used muslin for the extra petals and the tiny flower on the end. I liked how it looks, very natural. I’ve learned that it mustn’t be handled too much or you’ll get little tiny “hairs.”

Aaaand I finally get to use up those funky little pearls that I’ve kept all these years.

I really like my take on kanzashi. So far people have loved them in my neighborhood. Oh! And I’ve actually sold a pair to someone in France! My work is international now. ^_^ hee-hee!

    Heh, I’ve gotten carried away with the sushi fabric. Now I’m making two bags (messenger bag and tote) and may make something else small.
