Annoucing 4 lucky winners....!


Congratulations to four of you!
I'll be contacting each of you shortly,
but Marsha and Sylvia F, I don't think I have a way
to contact you, so please e-mail
me with your addy.

I want to thank all of you for taking time
from your busy days to come and say hi
for me here. I know I post very infrequently
but you guys are so nice to remember about me.

I'm sorry for most of you who are disappointed
that the random generator didn't pick you this time.
I know it makes you a little sad because I never
ever win any giveaways. haha! But please don't
be too disappointed because I'll definitely
have more giveaways here in the future.

If you happen to wish to buy the fabric instead,
I encourage you to hop over to Cotton Garden, the
Japanese online shop I snatched the fabric from.
A lot of Japanese fabric I own came from the shop
because they have the best selection of unique
fabric, especially a collection of Suzuko Koseki.
I know everything is in Japanese in the website,
which might make you feel a bit overwhelmed
but they do accept a payment by Visa credit card and
they are willing to ship internationally via
Express mail. I suggest that you e-mail the owner
directly and ask if you can buy fabric from
them without going through the shopping cart thingy.
(Their e-mail address is located at the
very bottom of the website.)

If many of you have wanted to buy something from
Japanese-only websites but have been discouraged from
the language issue, I will be happy to make a list of
translated Japanese sentences for common expressions/
sentences or give you templates here. Just let me know ;)


By the way, I have great news for those of you
who love free sewing tutorials like me.
Anna from Noodlehead started this fun
event where 10 days in a row starting May 17th,
each day a different blogger posts a sewing
tutorial that will help you spice up your kitchen.
Go take a look at many fun tutorials
that have been introduced over at Anna's blog.
It will for sure extend your to-make list :D
I'm very happy that I will be a part of this
cool event; my tutorial will show up here on
the 27th of this month and it will be on
the placemat that I truly enjoy making.
