Hello everyone! I am back from my trip and would like to thank you all for entering the giveaway. I was so pleased that so many of you were enthusiastic about the Japanese pattern books I keep talking about! If you are interested in purchasing them yourself, I usually buy them from Pomadour's Craft Cafe on Etsy. She has a vast selection and the books always arrive fairly quickly. She was very helpful once when I asked if she could track down the Lacey Clothes Book for me.
Now for a winner: congratulations, Bridget! I will contact you for your details. I hope you will enjoy your new book.
I have a few vacation photos to share with you. I am not a very good traveler, and I always forget to take pictures. Can you guess where I was? One of my favourite things about traveling is how the air smells differently in different parts of the world. Here it smelled like cedar and rosemary, like sugar and anise. Food tasted better, too, I thought. These things can't be captured in a photograph.
