Hot from Japan!

My son and his girlfriend have been in Tokyo on holiday for the past fortnight, and despite possibly having been inadvertantly married (just don't ask!), they had a great time. He did, however, fail in his mission to bring me back some different and exciting yarn....not that he didn't try, but just didn't find any. It was a long shot anyway!

He did bring me back the above felt mascot book and fabric, as well as some proper green tea, which I am well pleased with.
This is the page that sold the book to him and funnily enough, the Pony Express penguin with his little raggedy rabbit are my favourites too - can't wait to have a go at making them!
These are cute, but I really don't know what anyone would do with some felty leeks.......
And because I just can't leave things alone, even when I am on my knees with exhaustion, I started to make the little felt cafe last night and carried on until past midnight...

Japanese craft books - so utterly bonkers at times and so utterly gorgeous! There is nothing quite like them. Hope the thoughtful book pressie almost made up for the getting hitched! :-/

There is nothing on paper, so I think the ceremony they unwittingly took part in at some shrine doesn't mean much - gave us a good laugh anyway!

What a cute book and thoughtful present. I can't wait to see what you make.

Congrats to your son and his girlfriend!
What lovely little veggies and cars and things, could you make them so small that they could be strung on a necklace? or would that be too silly perhaps!
P.x
