Oh it was so lovely while it lasted. I ate real food (two main courses at the restaurant!!), I drank a hot drink (haven't been able to handle anything hot for months), I ate cake and I slept better. Lovely.
But short lived. Never mind hey. I'm sure it will happen again.
However, due to the return to regular scheduling I wasn't quite as productive today, but I did manage to finish some hand sewing as well as catching up on some reading. Do you know that I discovered a Japanese book today that I bought in NYC that I hadn't even opened yet?!! (I can hear my mother tutting very loudly whilst saying "well that was a waste of money then wasn't it?").
So I thought I'd share some pretty pics from that with you today as I have no actual crafting to show you and I'm attempting to blog more than once a week (mainly because my own mother keeps bitching to me about how there are no new posts! And you wonder why I haven't made her a pin cushion yet?!)
I have one of these sewing machine tables sitting in my parents garage and would love to find the space to have it in my studio - but I guess that since space is about to become a real issue around here that isn't going to happen any time soon!
I really want that little wooden till for Bella - isn't it the cutest?
And how about this row of little houses? I would have flipped over those when I was younger.
The book is actually about wooden zakka rather than fabric, but it's full of the most beautiful photo's of peoples homes. The Japanese are the best at combining utilitarian furniture with simple beauty.
I love having a lot of print and pattern around me, but everytime I see homes that are as simple and as beautiful as the ones in this magazine, I wonder if I should start all over again!
Ahhh, sickness my old friend, there you are.....
