Japanese Craft Book and Sept. 2010 Cotton Time Magazine

I think the craft books I purchased in Oregon are both in Japanese- but since I don't read any Asian language I can only suppose.  They do have some inspirational photos and most of the patterns are full sized with step by step pictures.

The first book has the English subtitle "My Quilt Days" under the heading.  It is a book that uses quilting and embroidery in purse making. 


The new Cotton Time Magazine had several good ideas. 


I liked the yo-yo lamp and the felt bear (notice the ripples in the tub water- so cute!). 

The fabric to make the small pink purse was included with the magazine...


I may never actually create one of these projects but I enjoy looking at them and thinking about the possibilities.  That is one reason why I enjoy the blogs in blog land.  I am just amazed at the creative projects that women come up with!
