lovely surprises

I am a firm believer in the goodness and the kindness of people. Somehow I have been lucky enough to make connections with some of the most good and the most kind.

This week I had two lovely surprises in my mailbox: a Japanese sewing book from Tara-Lynn (my favourite beret and cowl knitter & charming vintage seller at Darling Brigade), and a piece of barkcloth from Claire, who read about how I would like to acquire barkcloth, remembered, and sent it to me.

And look! The fabric and the book go together so well that I am starting to believe more & more in that magic I keep talking about.

  2. Have you been to the Japanese library? There's a magazine there that I think you would enjoy. It's very crafty, and if I remember correctly there are sewing patterns and such. When I was there, they had a stack of back issues.
