Same ol', same ol'

Still no computer (thank God for libraries), but I had to tell ya'll about my recent trip to the Japanese store. I swear, even mentioning about it now just makes me stop breathing. Anytime I question whether I've lost my passion for life, all I have to do is realize there really are still some things that just send me over the edge. I just wanted to browse. I actually managed not to buy the lovely washcloths I would like to make a softie with (I'll end up getting those eventually), or the adorable mini clothesline for portable drying of laundry (good for trips, etc), or the soaps in all the cute animal-shaped bottles...

But then I went into the bookstore.

Oh.My.God. I mean, I couldn't have been more thrilled with a new puppy or a diamond. I took my package to my car, delicately lifted my precious book out of its bag (yes, I managed to only buy one), and out loud actually gasped. It is just too wonderful. I'll post pics as soon as my computer is up and running again.

In the meantime I've finally been productive (hmmm, coincidence that summer has begun? I think not). I'm making a small organza quilt, having tons of fun with a vinyl quilt, and am maybe going to have an apron done for this month.

So in other words....
I'll be back.

You have me intrigued! Having been to Japan (many years ago) and always loved everything Japanese, I can relate to your enthusiasm. Whatever this book is - I'm looking forward to seeing it here! There a few shops around Melbourne that specialise in things Japanese; I should visit them more often, but for the sake of my bank account, it is probably best that I don't!
