This weekend, K and I decided to take a day-cation to Chicago. We love going there to visit H-Mart, which is this huge Korean market with additional vendors inside. It’s really something neat if you’ve never seen something like that before.
We stopped at my favorite store called Fancy Pencil Shop. It’s one of the vendors inside of H-Mart. I bought the two cute plushies you see above. They are Hamtaro (left) and Purin (right). I know, I’m a little old for soft animals, but to me they are more collector’s items than anything. I was hoping to get a Molang plushie, but they didn’t carry them 😦 I was a bit disappointed in that, but maybe one day. I did find them on Amazon, so I will be updated my Wishlist to reflect my Molang love 🙂
I also bought a Rilakkuma pencil case which I’m using to keep my crochet hooks in 😀 I mean, come on, isn’t that the cutest?
At the Japanese market, Mitsuwa, K bought some pastries from a cute little bakery called the Happy Hippo and I picked this:
I was surprised to find corn inside! haha
Crochet has been a so fun for me lately. I am just loving Amigurumi! My most recent creation is this Chocoat, who is a friend of Hello-Kitty. I wasn’t really satisfied with the pattern and it didn’t turn out to be my greatest creation, but it’s still kind of cute.
I also tried making my first mandala from a small mandala pattern I found on Ravelry.com
It turned out ok, but I kind of hate the colors I picked. I’m terrible at matching colors! I really am not good at that and this is a reflection of my poor, color-picking skill.
Anyway, that’s my life right now. I’m currently working on a VERY fun Amigurumi project and hopefully I can share it with you soon. My OCD habits have kept me from getting far with it today because I keep redoing parts of it for perfection sake.
Thanks so much for reading. Hope your weekend was great!
