Here is the latest Tokyo subway bad manners poster. It's been updated to show people wearing masks. One thing I find interesting is that the people with bad manners in 1 - 5, have blond or red hair (foreigners?). What do you think?

I came across a little piece of left over fabric and decided to start a new eyelet fob.
I also found this small piece of fabric with squares and decided to start a Christmas ornament with it.
I thought this would be another ornament, but now I think it might be too big. I'll have to stitch more and decide.
Another new start is this bluebell cross stitch design from this book. This might be finished as a pillow.
I started this last week at stitch group and have worked a little more on it.

Vending machine technology is keeping pace with the pandemic. Dydo vending machine company has come up with a foot operated drink machine for those who are reluctant to touch the buttons with fingers when making a purchase.
At the bottom of the machine are buttons with numbers corresponding with the drink offerings. All you have to do is touch the button with your foot. There is also a foot pedal on the right side to open the plastic door to get the drink bottle. There are cashless payment options too, so the only thing you have to touch is the bottle of the drink you are purchasing.
What do you think? Are you afraid to buy a vending machine drink during the pandemic? Would this machine make you feel safer?
