My hobbies will be the ruin of me someday

I took my bunny pen to school yesterday to show the students what I bought during my vacation. Both of the team-teachers I did this with wondered why I would buy such a thing. When I mentioned that my friends and I were playing a "game" to see how many rabbits we could find in Hiroshima, they both said the exact same thing: "I didn't know Hiroshima was famous for rabbits." ^_^;

In other news, I caved and ordered an embroidery machine. (I picked the cheap one that didn't come pre-loaded with Disney or other characters.) If all goes well, it should get here within a week.

I then stopped at the bookstore today and bought a couple more books on art and sewing. The way I see it, if I'm going to be designing embroidery patterns, I need to brush up on my drawing/painting skills. Plus I'll need ideas for things to make to put the embroidery on. (It all makes sense in my head.)

I did exercise some self-control. I refrained from buying books on Japanese calligraphy and sumie (ink painting).
