today was a happy mail day! i got my order from superbuzzy. i really just wanted the cotton time mag, but since i was ordering i figured i might as well get some yummy fabric too. i was good tho and only bought two half yards. i cant wait to use it, its too darn cute. oh, the issue is may 2009, in case you want to buy it. it has some really adorable projects.
i am planning on fussy cutting into the little word squares. but i dont have a particular project in mind yet. that kitchen print just makes me want to squeal.

i have been on a pincushion binge, as i needed to make one for a co-worker to give to her mom, and a few others for swaps, so i figured as long as i am making them i might as well make a bunch. the top left one i used vintage upholstery velvet for the flower.....i think i really like the look. the fabric is sherry berry christmas. i think its the bees knees, dont you? vintage buttons too, of course!
oh i almost forgot!! do you like the new header???

Mitsuwa how i love thee, let me count the ways

today was a happy day. why, you ask?? because i got to go to mitsuwa!!!

mitsuwa is a mall of sorts, it has a food court, a grocery, a travel agent, and a yummy bakery, but best of all it has a bookstore!!! ack!! i lurve this place. i spent almost two hours browsing thru the craft titles and came away with three delicious selections. i dont want to bore everyone by showing you all three here, so i will show you just one, with a few peeks inside. if you want to see more, i will gladly do it in the next couple days. just let me know

i think i might recreate this as a possibly dqs7 or a swap with a certain blogger friend, who shall remain nameless.....

love the wee pincushion, needlebook and geez i guess everything!! there is a lot of wee going on in this pic!

i need to make a new pair of slippers (or as they so sweetly call them in japan, house shoes)

you know how things dont always translate well from one language to another?? what comes to mind is packages of things from china. well this is not one of those things! when i first saw these i thought, wow! really???? fruit salad on bread???? but oh yummmmmmmmm. and i dont even know what have of the fruit is!! its kind of suspended in a whipped creamy thing, on white bread with the crusts taken off, thank you very much. funny thing is, they have potato salad on bread too....i have NOT been brave enough to try that one tho. i guess they figure if its salad it is meant to go on bread, you know, like egg salad......;O/

a new blog!

ok, so i havent been posting in ages....the truth? i got sick of how my blog looked. i had such a hard time putting in buttons and then they werent even buttons. just words. not good. not happy. so i jumped ship to blogger. i am hoping this will be much easier! now i just need to go find all the buttons to all the swaps and groups and things im in!

i hope you all find me, because i really am too cheap to pay typepad for a month just to put a blurb that i am no longer there.
see that cookie up there?? they are delish. they are called italian lemon drops. if you ever get a chance to nibble one...go for it. you wont be sorry. promise
