More Japanese craft goodnes...

I have received some wonderful mail this week...made all the more special due to the fact that I am slammed at work and am preparing for a 2 1/2 day trial which starts on the 14th. I spent most of today working on preparing exhibits for the trial.

I have a wonderful new friend named Dawn that I met through Moki's initial swap and when she found out I am starting to collect Japanese craft books she offered to get me one anytime when she is in Seattle...this delicious book arrived from her yesterday - the picture is not too clear but it is Heart Warming Life Series ISBN 4-529-04018-6. I borrowed this book from Moki over the summer and fell in love with it - thank you Dawn!! And the check is in the mail:):):)


The next piece of goodness arrived today from Michelle in Texas who was my partner for the Swap-bot Wish List swap I participated in. I was so touched that she chose this book for me and ordered it...what an awesome gift. It is entitled Linen Handiworks for Everyday Use and the ISBN is 4-8347-2403-4. It is filled with tons of beautiful projects!! Thank you so much Michelle.

I am happy to report that my collection is now up to 5 books:):):) With a wishlist about a mile long...

So jealous! I love the simplicity of those books. I've yet to find one. One of these days.

Oh ah! I haven't seen either of those two yet. I am so envious of those that live near a store that sells them. It is so hard to pick off the net, but then again I would probably be lost in the store for days looking at all the book!
