First time playing golf is first time in course!!

Basically I am loving playing golf !! I always interested in playing. I used to play billiard. Once I came to UK, started to play pool.

Don’t know about good or bad, but I enjoy playing them.

Perhaps, I love playing ball into hole?!

It was an unexpected opportunity. My son’s competition partner with adult. My hubby was planning to play, but since he is programming everyday,

his arms not great condition. so I decided to play instead of him the day before at the driving range. Hubby was looking at me

and taking video and I can check what is wrong with my shot. It is outrage to go on course without any experience.

But any  time is the first time for me. I was feeling sorry to playing awful shot to team Cave member of son! So I keep saying ‘sorry’.

Then he said ‘ Stop saying sorry all the time!’ Of course me put everybody down! End of the day, it is competition. and gentlemen and ladies sports!

Of course, result wasn’t great. I even over stretched my left thumb…. But thanks to my great ‘Jikyoujyutu’ exercise. Almost cleared after few days of


Now I can not wait my son’s lesson….

I am deferentially into this sports now….

Bridal headpiece

I was making bridal headpiece for a customer.

I made this by using quality  embroidered lace provided by local boutique who does wonderful work.

I have been asked to make a “Great Gatsby”-like head dress.

Pearl, Diamante, lace, blue…..

Wedding can be stressful, but we had hand made wedding when we just started settling in London.

We didn’t have enough budget to put into.

We got lot of help from work mates and friends and family and Great Boss!!

I can not say enough thank you to all who helped us to put them together.

I made my wedding dress myself which is kimono like dress.


And my Great boss in London kindly to lend me 35000 pounds worth Wedding Kimono from Japan.

I didn’t know it was bad luck to make the wedding dress by myself….Somehow keeping on for 15 long years together…Thanks to great boss!!

So I was wearing Kimono, my hubby was wearing Kilt. Of course middle in London’s register office had never seen such a wedding before.

Unique wedding is great. Even I had money I wouldn’t go for traditional wedding.

I highly recommend for people who are going to marry, just design own wedding for big event for your life!

Commission work

Tartan hand made corsage

Tartan hand made corsage


When I went to show my new products to my client. I was asked to make a rossette

using the same tartan material, while my client was serving his customer. I was thinking to make a rose with tartan, just I was talking with my client.

I have stiffened the tartan, and ironed each petal to make a rose. I really enjoyed making this.

My client was happy with the result, and said I had done a great job!





This Summer’s Edinburgh Fringe festival has finished and Military Tattoo was a fantastic display!
