Sometimes I come on here to write a post and wish that I had some interesting life stories to share, rather than just posting a torrent of crazy patterns. But it's just been work work work around here, and nothing I can legally show until it's in the public domain.
I've been giving a lot of thought to what to call my Etsy shop, and a few people have reinforced the notion that it should be Kirin something, to match this blog. Kirinmade? Kirincraft? Kirin Small Goods?
Oh I do have some news - I farewelled my brother and his wife today as they're off to live in the US for the next few years. He landed himself a job at Microsoft, whilst my other brother is already over there working for Google. (So i'm nerdy and cool by association).
Anwyay they got me a webcam and a microphone as an early birthday present so we can Skype together, which is pretty cool :)
