More stitching


I finished a couple more things this week…

This little blouse for Lindsay…I think it’s too cute! I used a pattern from one of my Japanese craft books, and made it teeny tiny for Linds. It actually wasn’t that hard to do…the hardest part was sizing it down.

I also (finally) finished this scarf that I started months ago…I wish it was cold outside so I could wear it! It’s super-soft and cozy, made of a fuzzy eyelash yarn I splurged on a while back.

Last night Lindsay and Chad joined us for dinner, and I went for an Asian-finger-food theme. I made lettuce wraps and edamame, and bought a variety of nori rolls at Whole Foods. It was yum.

I’m off to write my weekly post for Wardrobe Refashion…happy Thursday!

  3. Thanks for pointing the japanese books out to me. Are they written in english, I don’t speak japanese, but the books look great, so I am very tempted too. Your blog is great, and you Father’s day entry made me cry, I don’t have my Father anymore.

  4. Rita, they are written in Japanese, unfortunately…I don’t understand a word of it, but the photos are lovely and you can actually figure out some of the patterns and diagrams. You can check out http://www.craftlog.org/craftingjapanese/…she’s posted links to photos of many of the books as well as their ISBN numbers, which you’d use to find them through amazon japan or yesasia.

  5. Thank you for your help. I hope to find some books now on this website that you recommended. Yesasia is very difficult to navigate, I was not getting anywhere. I love your Blog, it is really very precious to me. I will
    visit everyday. Rita
