Hari-kuyo is a Japanese event held every February 8th. Its purpose is to thank all the needles and pins that have broken over the past year. They're brought to the local Buddhist temple, placed in a giant block of tofu (or other soft food), and purified.
It's this day that I took my blog title from. There's something very respectful about the act of thanking a broken needle for what its done for you.
Over the coming months, and hopefully years, I'll be posting about my current projects, tutorials, and random babbling about my crafty world in general. Please to enjoy.
