Hi guys! Sorry for not posting in so long!
Simply one word to excuse: Busy.
I haven't had much time to get crafty for quite a while,
but I wanted to show my new Japanese fabric stash
little quick before I fly over to Yakima in Washington.
I bought some Japanese fabric online and my friend brought
it with her when she came over here in San Jose from Japan.
This is what I got from Japanese Yahoo auction.
A set of white and orange with the same pattern.
When I saw this entry, I knew there would be no way
whatsoever to let it go. Then I happened to win it ;)
This is by a fabric designer Kumiko Fujita who's
written AWESOME patchwork books including this.
I love this design too. Can you believe this was on sale?
Plastic bag dispenser? Oven mitt? Place mat?
Anything would be cute.....
This is a very nice one by Yuwa.
I wanted to show you all the fabric, but not all
pictures turned out great, so let me stop at this moment.
Some Good News... ;)
1) I'm having fun with my friend from Japan!
I took her to Anthropologie in San Jose yesterday.
It's one of my favorite shops in America (although it does
not mean I can afford lots of things sadly, haha.)
My friend loving the cute collection of oven mitts and aprons.
Every time I come here, I get inspired so much that I always
feel like going home asap to have a go at sewing!
For whoever designs for this shop, I give a huge credit
and many thanks for the inspiration.
2) Some of my tutorials will be introduced in
2010 calenders published by Accord Publishing!
I'm sure you've seen this type of calenders if you live
in the states. There will be "sewing" version coming up and
three tutorials of mine which I've introduced in this blog will be
on the 2010 calender! Super Excited. Super!!!
3) I bought a new camera: Nikon D40!
I was ready to move onto a new camera a year and a half ago
when I dropped my old one on concrete and its display light
stopped working. So glad now that I got a new one which is
a million times better in quality of pictures. (Can you tell
from these pictures on this entry? ;) )
4) My fall semester will be over in just 3 weeks!!
Can't wait to put away all the textbooks and enjoy sewing
without "guilt". Yes! I have to finish up the penguin quilt!!
Sure I do have links to cool baskets as usual!
