Tenugui mumbling Vol.88 – Happy Easter Tenugui mouse pad

Friday, April 1st, 2011

bunny tenugui as a mouse pad, and mameshibori as an arm rest, and a chick tape measure as a company

I spend most of my day on my computer 7-days a week, 365-days a year.?Did you know that Tenugui can be used as a mouse pad and an arm rest as well?

Here is my Easter theme mouth pad and an arm rest. My bunny tenugui is 9-years old, and mame-shibori (doted print) is 15-years old. Wow,? I realized now he (mame-shibori tenugui)?is very old!!!! Somehow I called my bunny tenugui as HER, and mame-shibori as HIM. strange? I purchased a chick tape measure in my favorite store Papar Presenation, in Chelsea recently. They are perfect together, and help my work!

Sometimes I’ll get tired even when working on?things that I’m devoted to… but Tenugui always?gives me nice warm cheers and comfort. Let’s have a cup of tea, and get back to my project!!!!!

And… I can’t wait to tell you about my new projetct to support Japan very very soon!!!!!!!

Tenugui mumbling Vol.62 – Your own Vintage Tenugui

Friday, March 19th, 2010
As you washed your tenugui, the edges will be naturlly ragged.

As you wash your tenugui, the shorter edges will ruffle, like cut off jeans.

The beauty of tenugui… As you continue to wash your tenugui, they will fade?gradually while maintaining their beauty. The two short edges may ruffle slightly, as with cut off jeans.?These are my Maiko tenugui, and I have been using it more than four years. Can you tell which one is mine?

This is a new Maiko Tenugui

This is a brandnew Maiko Tenugui

My Maiko tenugui, she is 4-years old!

My Maiko tenugui, she is 4-years old!

I wish I can let you feel how soft my 4-years old tenugui is, just like a blankey (baby blanket) my own,
my dear Maiko tenugui… she is a part of my life!
I am sure that you have Tenugui just like mine, please enjoy the beauty of Tenugui your own!

Happy Spring Tenugui fans!!!!!
