Simple Stitch Life

  Another Japanese embroidery book with lots of linen and references to France, from the tour Eiffel to phrases in French, as in the case of "La cuisine de maman" and the recipe for madeleines embroidered on a kitchen apron. A few British things, too: the Tower bridge, a London taxi and more.

I love these books; such a beautiful, simple aesthetic. And it's wonderful that you take the time to photograph them for everyone to see. Thanks!

Hi, I love this book "Simple Stitch Life". Where did you find it. I'd love a copy. I have a Fiber retail shop in Minneapolis but would want this for personal use. Thanks, Bonny
