As you know I’ve just gotten back from a great 4 days with Al. She took me to a lot of her crafty haunts. The button store, the ribbon store, the fabric stores AND Kinokuniya where I indulged myself.
I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking. On the left the softest cotten striped fabric. In the middle and on the right a metre each of some Marimekko prints. The one on the right is going to become a wall hanging.
A couple of screen printed tea towels. I think it’ll be too painful to use them. I may end up sewing with them? Or is that worse? Cutting them up and sewing as opposed to using them? I’m not sure yet. The apples/pear one is by a company called Anty Matter in Torquay in Melbourne Victoria and the cupcake one is by Rokoco. They also do napkins, table runners and aprons (yes they have a cupcake apron, but I don’t think it’s as cute as the tea towel).
And the world’s most stunning button, it’s about an inch in diametre.
I’m too lazy to grab the covers of the books I bought at Kinokuniya, but here are some ISBN’s:
There’s also some yarn and some more fabric, but I reckon that’s enough gloating for the moment!
