If I have a chance to travel, I want to go to local market first and eat as much street food as possible. I stopped this little farm store and felt like I was somewhere in Europe or Mediterranean. I know it sounds silly. As I have only known Vons, Albertsons or Costco and a couple of farmers markets, this little store was a wonderland to me. It was a brief getaway and I really enjoyed this colorful inspirations.      I wanted to draw these olive jars and price tag for my next stamp set. “Isn’t it beautiful?” A lady works hereRead More →

It rained today. My 10 year Chloe said “it rains cat and dogs.” then my 6 year Claire asked “where’s cats and dogs?” As a Korean, this expression doesn’t make sense to me for I see many cats and dogs play like besties. It rained like two dogs on the street. “I will save you!” Claire said.   A happy mail from Ministry of Fabric came along with rain.   They are Sevenberry fabrics, Cotton and Steel and Dear Stella. It always surprise me when someone selected fabrics just like I picked them. I remember many gifts I didn’t really like; plates, clothes, homeRead More →

I got a happy mail from F+W Media a few days ago. Mini Patchwork Projects is a light book which includes 6 projects.(48pages) Most of them are simple yet fun projects you can finish in one day.   I decided to make a Reversible Trinket Bowl from the book. In the book, you need only two cotton prints for inside and outside of the bowl but I wanted to give my own twist, my signature Sewing Illustration!   First, I copied the template and cut  light weight fusible interfacing, roughly bigger than the template And placed my Sewing Illustration piece with cute fabric scraps fromRead More →

7 o’clock in the morning my Chloe’s friend knocked the door to go to school together. They sat on the dining table and chatted about the school, teachers, bugging boys and sort of 10 year old stuff. “My first grade teacher hated me. She didn’t even let me go pee.” “My first grade teacher liked me and my second grade teacher loved me and……” They were cute and I got to know that she was loved by all the teachers in her 6 years of school life.   Then I had an idea to show my gratitude for her teacher; making one of kind bookmarks!Read More →

My dear friend, Suhobi‘s book “Suhobi’s Polymer Clay” has published in Korea. After long waiting and excitement, I finally met the book today. She generously included her precious time and effort together. Her signature Polymer Clay buttons!!   Unfortunately, this book isn’t available on Amazon.  And she doesn’t sell her buttons. If you are looking for polymer clay buttons, check out The Button Company.       I have been so fortunate to use her buttons on my projects that gives extra shine. And I am very grateful of knowing her and calling each other a friend.   Thank you, my friend for visiting. Minki  Read More →

  I found these pictures in my old photo file today. These are my very first attempt to make tiny pincushions almost 3 years ago. I guess my skill hasn’t changed much. I remember that I was so excited of this ‘Sewing Illustration’ adventure; finding new technique and it seemed like I always don’t have enough time to draw so many ideas in my mind. After three years, I am suffering lack of ideas and I feel I am suck where I am now. Hubby advices me to take a break and slow down. Well, I think I really have to listen to him andRead More →

Quilt Festival; Quilt Scene magazine is now on newsstands and my Knit Pouch is featured.   An awesome editor Vivica sent me this beautiful Heather Ross collection from Spring Quilt market and I was able to finish this knit pouch. There’s a few things you hardly learn or keep forgetting. Knitting and Crochet are one of them. Every winter season, I search up YouTube channels and blog step photos to get to know the basic of knitting, and by the time spring comes or while enjoying summer, I totally forget what I have learned. So sadly, I am always a beginner in knitting world. Now youRead More →
