And by funny I mean “WOW…huh”? I bought this apron book I have been wanting.


Japanese publication.  Please, I am a pretty good seamstress, I can figure it out. Seems harmless enough


Until I unfolded it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The look on Hannah’s face says it all!

I have tons of Japanese craft books and I love them.  But WOW.  Where to start?  I think I will be better off to just look at the pictures and freehand the patterns!!! But I have not given up.  I am taking the book with me today and while I am waiting for Husband to see his doctor and I am going to study it.  Because surely in 2 hours or so I can teach myself Japanese, right?

Do you think it is actually a map?

Oh well…I will keep you posted on  my progress!

Yeah, I thought so to.  But I can’t announce the date just yet.  I have this tote started..as in cut out…and I want to have it at least semi finished before I formally announce the dates and how you can win it.  But here is a little picture to whet your appetite.

I picked a lovely blue and natural toile from my endless stack of fabric remnants and a blue and cream floral for the lining.  Lovely huh?  If it is soooo lovely why dont I keep it for myself??? Well because I have between 12 and 973 totes.  I have 10 that I keep in the vehicle now for impromptu grocery shopping.  And more than impromptu,  I couldnt tell you how many times I have gone off and left them so now I unpack them and put them back for next trip.

This is a preview of what the tote will look like.  What I would kinda like to suggest is if you happen to win it and really dont “need” it, then maybe you could re-gift it to someone you would like to see do a little something greener like carry a tote instead of using another disposable grocery bag. Or maybe if you have someone in mind who needs it you might enter on their behalf…and please pass the info along once I get it posted.

I will say I am going to do my best to finish it this next week because Husband comes home the next Thursday and I won’t be doing much crafting for a few days.  So…stay tuned.  I might even get real industrious and throw in some reusable produce bags…how does that sound???
