Cheese Coaster day!

It's so nice to have sunshine in my kitchen particularly when I'm working on felting. You need to stand there for a while so that the sunshine would help me not to think I'm stuck in somewhere doing hard works and missing out beautiful Autumn day out there.

I like working on my ironing board for cutting and sawing other than ironing, yes, it is not big and wide but that's the point I like about because it stops me to spread all bits and pieces unnecessarily, I'm a pretty much "spreader".... I will finish making 38 cheese coasters today, Hurray!

Japanese Gravity Marimba Plays Bach In An Ancient Forest

via Make: Online by Sean Michael Ragan on 11/04/11

This remarkably beautiful video, uploaded to YouTube one day before the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, turns out to be an ad for Sharp’s SH-08C handset. It is, nonetheless, something you shouldn’t miss: in a tranquil forest, a single wooden ball rolls down a stepped wooden ramp, continuously, for two minutes. At each step, it falls and strikes a wooden bar tuned to play a single note of the 10th movement of Bach’s Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben, BWV 147, commonly known by its English title, Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring. Wait ’till you see how they handle the sustained notes. [Thanks, Rachel!]
