Japanese Craft Book

I found an amazing new source for Japanese Craft Books at very reasonable prices,
and she'll even take special orders/requests!
It's Saucy Louise.

I just received this out-of-print book that I've been coveting for a long time.
She was somehow able to find me a copy.
It's absolutely drool-worthy.

I wanted the book specifically for this bag (I had seen the book posted previously on Crafting Japanese)

Look at these cute patchwork curtains, still sheer enough to let the light in (this would be perfect in a quilter's home)

Beautiful ideas! Ilove the way a lot of Japanese books like "paper and cotton" use colour in such subtle ways which really make you look at the object and craft work.

Those cats are so funny. Yes so Salvador Dali with that moustache.

Beaches from childhoods are such special places that become so difficult to see as adults as our perceptions have changed so much. We've been taught how to think and how to place value on things. It's so hard to think "little" again and see the wonder in the colours of seaweed, the microcosm of a rockpool etc. It's such a rare gift that some children's writers have managed to retain and describe that "magic" and wonder.

Stephanie, there's a post to Saucy Louise in this post (any highlighted text is a link). That's an online store. Or if you're lucky enough to have a Japanese bookstore in your city, they have them too. Ebay also has some.
