Another package from Japan!

  My Secret Pal is the best. My Saturday got lost in a series of small chores and by late afternoon I was bummed out that I hadn't had a real day off and I didn't know why. Couple of emails to clients, an invoice here, another little thing there, laundry, errands and it was 5:30pm. Then I convinced Ben to take a break from programming and we went for a short walk. The neighborhood is lovely in the evenings, not so hot, and all the plants in bloom. Among the bouganvilles on hormones we saw a beautiful doe grazing a neighbor's garden. By the time we got back home, the day was finally starting to look up. Then I checked the mailbox and there it was: a big yellow padded envelope from my SP in Japan.

And inside all these cool things! My SP had told me to watch the mailbox, but this was another stressful week and I had forgotten. I certainly didn't expect so much. *Four* books and booklets, funny stickers, an adorable card and felting wool.

I love this card; something about the pose and expression of the amigurumi makes it really sweet.

The highlight of the package is the book Simple zakka and bag of felt book. I had put it on my list at Amazon Japan after seeing just two photos and now I am so glad I did. It's a lovely book with some adorable felted projects. I am scanning several pages and I'll make an entry just for this book tomorrow.

These booklets are also about handmade felt.

The kittens and the sleeping puppies are too cute.

And not only the books, but also two bags of 100% merino wool so I can get started with some felting right away. Is that sweet or what?

Who's got the best secret pal?

Grazie SP!


Can i buy the book?
The cats il beautiful!
