    As a child I remember reading the books and watching Curious George episodes with the silly monkey and the Man With The Yellow Hat on television. My brother even had a Curious George stuffed animal that 30 years later still sits his old bedroom at my parent’s house. The animation and show has completely changed [...]

    Kids are spring loaded little things. They’ll bounce up and down until they’re out of breath and ready to drop from exhaustion. Bouncing on a trampoline, bouncing on the bed, bouncing on a pogo stick, or just plain jumping up and down is delightful to them. This love of bouncing makes twirly-tailed Tigger the perfect [...]

    Stacking toys-they’re a staple toddler play thing, and for good reasons. Wonderfully simplistic, greatly entertaining, and always offering up something to learn, they just don’t get old. This is helped, in part, by the all the new twists being put on classic toys lately. Here we’re taking a look at Melissa & Doug’s Wooden Owl [...]

  • 12/02/12--20:21: JLPT Results

  • The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) was held at test centers around the world yesterday. Did you take the test? How did you do?
    The JLPT is a standard which is used by many employers who seek Japanese speaking staff.
    In the past there used to be 4 levels but in recent years they split it into 5 levels - N5, N4, N3, N2 and N1. N1 is the most difficult and N5 is the easiest.
    Did you take the JLPT this year? If so what level? How did you feel about the paper? Do you think you passed? I hear that the results should be back in about February and that you can check the results online?
    There is a poll embedded in this article.

    Many many moons ago (20 years ago!) I passed level 4 and then level 2 the following year when I was self studying Japanese. After I graduated from university studying Japanese and Korean language, my teacher said that I didn't need to take level 1 ^^;

    If you are self studying Japanese then I recommend that you take the JLPT and use that as a goal to aim towards.


    Me studying Japanese back in the UK maaaany moons ago - that broken speaker and bit of glass was my first workspace.
    In the How Discovering Japan Changed My Life post, I talk about many techniques to learn Japanese including Immersion and Self Hypnotism ^^;

    The poster of Shinjuku on the wall was my lucky talisman which I would motivate me to stay focused on learning Japanese.


    Nendoroid Mirai Suenaga - your lucky talisman to help you stay focused on learning Japanese ^o^


    I've been in the same boat as you learning Japanese and I know exactly what its like which is one of the reasons why I released the Japanese learning series starting with Moekana which teaches Hiragana - Japanese language learning just had to be more fun!
    Next up will be Moekanji which will teach Kanji.


    As for me - I cant seem to pass my SLPT - so many difficult terms like "Been Chow Chow" keep showing up...

    Needle Felted Holiday Fiber Tree
    Copyright © 2012 - All Rights Reserved - Written By Linda Walsh of Linda Walsh Originals

    During my sister's and my 2nd needle felting and roving crafting adventure she managed to get two alpaca head ornament creations completed and 1/2 of the fiber art picture she was creating done.

    I, on the other hand, only managed to get a holiday fiber tree done and which is pictured above. I had wanted to create a red/white/green traditional tree, but the green roving colors I had weren't quite right. It ended up looking like a Southwestern holiday tree instead of a traditional holiday tree.

    Oh, well. You can't always control the final look of your creations.  It stands 7 1/2" tall and is felting over a Styrofoam base.

    Here's how I made it:

    Supplies Needed

    6 1/2" by 3" Round White Foam Cone
    White Roving - I used white roving from my sister's alpaca Sunflower which can be purchased HERE.
    Roving Mixture - Light Brown, Dark Brown, Gold & Metallic Thread Mix
    Roving - Gold, Lime Green, Dark Burgundy, Moss Green
    Metallic Thread - Gold
    Thick Braided DMC Floss - Burgundy
    1" Star Cookie Cutter Mold
    Clover Felting Needle Mat Large or Colonial Needle Needle Felting Foam
    Blue Grip Single Felting Needle
    Clover Pen Style Needle Felting Tool

    Directions

    1) Spread a light layer of the white roving all along the bottom of the white foam cone and extending about 1/2" up the sides. Needle felt to hold.
    2) Take a long piece of the white roving and starting at the bottom of the cone wrap it around the cone in a counter clockwise direction needle felting it as you go along with the pen style needle felting too until you reach the top. Needle felt to the top to secure the end. Make sure the entire white foam is covered fully.
    3) Fill the 1" star cookie cutter mold with gold roving and then needle felt it with the single felting needle and the felting mat or felting foam until it measures about 1/4" thick.
    4) Position the gold star in the center of the top of the tree and needle felt it with the single felting needle to the top to hold it.
    5) Cut a 42" long piece of the roving mixture and roll it between your hands until the roving mixture is about 1/4" thick. Needle felt all along the roving with the single felting needle and foam or mat.
    6) Starting at the top of the tree next to the gold star needle felt one end of the roving mixture with the single felting needle to secure it to the top.
    7) Slowly wrap and needle felt the 1/4" thick roving mixture around the tree in a counter clockwise direction with the pen style felting tool until it is pleasing to the eye and until you reach the bottom.
    8) Needle felt the end of the roving mixture with the single felting needle to secure it around the bottom of the tree.
    9) Pull a small piece of the gold roving abut 3/4" to 1" and roll it on your hands to create a small ball then needle felt the ball with the single felting needle and foam or mat until it is about 1/3 to 1/4" round. Create 16 gold balls.
    10) Pull a small piece of the dark burgundy roving abut 3/4" to 1" and roll it on your hands to create a small ball then needle felt the ball with the single felting needle and foam or mat until it is about 1/3 to 1/4" round. Create 16 dark burgundy balls.
    11) Pull a small piece of the moss green roving abut 3/4" to 1" and roll it on your hands to create a small ball then needle felt the ball with the single felting needle and foam or mat until it is about 1/3 to 1/4" round. Create 16 moss green balls.
    12) Starting at the top of the tree and alternating the gold, dark burgundy, and moss green balls space and needle felt the balls along the bottom side of the roving mixture about 1/2" apart until you reach the bottom of the tree and end of the roving mixture with the pen style needle felting tool. Make more balls if need be.
    13) Cut a piece of the thick braided DMC burgundy floss 45" long and needle felt one end to the top of the tree with the single felting needle.
    14) Slowly wrap and needle felt the thick braided DMC burgundy floss in several places with the single felting needle around the tree in a counter clockwise direction until it is pleasing to the eye and until you reach the bottom.
    15) Needle felt the end of the thick braided DMC burgundy floss with the single felting needle to secure it around the bottom of the tree.
    16) Cut a piece of the gold metallic thread 45" long and needle felt one end to the top of the tree with the single felting needle.
    17) Slowly wrap and needle felt the gold metallic thread in several places with the single felting needle around the tree in a counter clockwise direction until it is pleasing to the eye and until you reach the bottom.
    18) Needle felt the end of the gold metallic thread with the single felting needle to secure it around the bottom of the tree.
    19) Cut 26 to 30 pieces of the lime green roving 6" long and about 1/4" wide. Slightly roll each piece between your hands to slightly felt it.
    20) Tie each of the 6" pieces into a bow.
    21) Pin the center of the bows all along the tree until they are evenly spread out and pleasing to the eye.
    22) Needle felt the centers of each of the bows with the single felting needle to secure them to the tree.

    CONGRATULATIONS! Your needle felted holiday tree is done.
