If you look at the number of comments on these sites, they are VERY popular, unsurprising because everything is so painfully cute that I want to retire from writing to my craft career way before I turn 65. I did start a little felt owl last night that’s turning out pretty cute. Anyway, also I ordered this book, and if anyone out there reads Japanese, please be in touch, because I’m not sure what I was thinking about how I’d actually read the instructions. I just saw the patterns and had to have it.
Writing this, I think I figured it out, how to get all the writing/sewing/embroidery/collage/quilting/knitting/whatever projects done. I will quit sleeping.
