Eyes eyes baby

Today I met my uncle at Kamppi shopping mall. He wanted to give me some money for my birthday, though my birthday was over a month ago. I guess it's better late than never. Anyway. I don't go to Helsinki often. There is no reason. We have everything here at Leppävaara... expect a store selling safety eyes. Since I already had one reason to go to Helsinki, I asked J.R. if he wanted to come along. So we could go to Hobby Point and buy some safety eyes for our amigurumis.

We got home with six pairs of small black eyes, one pair of brown eyes, two pairs of big black eyes and two pairs of green lizard eyes. Now we're not running out of safety eyes soon. We mostly use small black eyes, but I wanted to buy some bigger ones too. Just in case. I also wanted to buy green lizard eyes, simply because they were so pretty. The big eyes cost 0,60€ per pair and small eyes 0.50€ at HobbyPoint.

J.R. is crocheting Queen Anne's lace in the background.

I also bought black watercolor pen by Derwent. I got Derwent Watercolor Pen Set of 36 when I was a kid. I'm still using the very same set because I don't draw often. But years ago my sister used to draw... and she used my black color. It didn't really bother me until I tried to color Tux from J.R's birthday card. A penguin can't be gray! So to make sure that next year J.R's Tux is nothing but black, I bought a new black watercolor pen.

Guess which one is the new pen =)
