IKURA&NAGAIMO .......In autumn

One of the pleasure of the autumn is harvest.
The salmon fishing receives the season near the town where I live.
Salmon is called AKIAJI here.     AKI means autumn and AJI means the taste.
The salmon is exactly a taste of autumn.
Do you eat IKURA?
I heard that there were a lot of countries where it did not eat IKURA.
IKURA which put topping to steaming rice is like the ruby.

I purchase IKURA, and I make soy sauce pickles every week in this season.

This is NAGAIMO field.

This scenery reminds me of the scene of the maze of the hedge of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire of the movie.

I started the production of the ornament at Christmas.
I have made this design with present use to friends before.
This time, I want to make it from primitive feeling.

Easy recipe....Pocket tissue cover

Very easily, a pocket tissue cover can be made.
I'm not good at English, so I explain with a picture.

The cloth is prepared.

I have added the cloth which did a cross stitch. 
Of course all the same cloth is OK.

Cloths sew and match it. In addition, the fold mark is put with the iron.
It folds according to the fold mark.

This is the state seen from the side.

Between 2 folds and 5 folds,  careful not to be a gap 

sew up the sides.

It's turned over.


There is also a pocket in the back.

The one of the stripe of the first photograph added the lace tape .
I think that you can make various covers with your idea.

Thank you for visiting my  blog ! (o'∀'o) 
Have a happy day!

Pincushions of wooden cups

They are  cover of  legs of the old sewing machine.
About this container, I wrote it at the last post.
I made pincushions with those.

The pattern was made by myself.
I didn't have the software to make the pattern, so Excel was used.

Sunset was very beautiful today. 
Have a wonderful tomorrow.

Wooden pot

In this shop, I bought the wooden pot introduced in the last post.
Externals of this shop are like the warehouse.
However, The inside of a store comes for me to want to stay even how long.


This is a cover of  legs of the old sewing machine.

In Japan the life using the tatami mat was ever most.
The furniture with the leg attached a leg cover to protect a tatami mat.
Can you see that the part of the edge of this pot becomes dented two places?
This is to stop the caster. 
I think I'll make a pincushion using this. A bottom part is stable, so it's because it seems  easy to use.

They are  Tsumami-zaiku (KANZASHI) that my daughter produced. 
These are a suitable sizes for use as scissor fob.  

Thank you for visiting my small blog.

Have a happy day!

The other day I went to secondhand store.
