I am a handcraft maniac. I am felling in love with needle felting, beading, photography, drawing, clay pastries and miniature making.

Latte the sheep


Winter is coming. The Hong Kong Observatory predicts this winter in Hong Kong will be a long and cold one. It's bad news. We don't have heater at homes, in offices nor in public transportation. We wear thick layers of clothes even indoors. The scarf is an indispensable thing for me in winter, keeping my neck warm makes me feel so much better. This "warming the neck" thing inspired me to creat Latte the sheep. Latte is like a projection of me in winter - thick layers of fibers covering my body especially around the neck. Creating Latte or simply watching it makes me feel warm already.








Latte charms and pins are now available in my etsy shop

Amy, there is 1 more thing inspired me, subconsciously inspired me. I did not realize it until my cousin reminded me. The inspiration is my 3 month old baby niece. My cousin saw Latte and he said 'it looks exactly like Nicole, it is inspired by Nicole' Then I showed Latte to Nicole's mom, she said 'it really resembles my fat daughter'
