In need of a little relaxation the other day, I went to Mitsuwa to check out the new bookstore and the mayonnaise aisle. I spent way too much on craft books:
The first one is all sorts of patchwork projects, and I was inspired to try my hand at a little log cabin block. I think I will make it into a small bag. The middle book is crocheted animals. I wish I could crochet. I’ve tried a few times to teach myself, but it just feels awkward. A friend and expert crocheter is going to give me personalized lessons, so there is still some hope. Mostly I just want to be able to make those little birds (if you look closely, you can see one on the book cover). The third book is lots of tiny embroidered projects, many of them on my favorite-natural linen! Lots of inspiration for me :o)
I also picked up a treat for my little sister:
I know it’s not Argentinian mayonnaise, but it’s Food for ages 0-100! It’s QP Mayonnaise! And it’s squeezable! I hope she likes it.
Once again, I used up my weekly exclamation point allotment in one entry.
