My friend Shane(the embroidery master), showed me these Japanese embroidery/ cross stitch magazines that she got from the Japanese book store in Japan town, and I instantly fell in love! I can't believe they are called magazines because each issue is as big as a craft book and is chalked full of inspiration and beautiful pictures, its kind of amazing. I hope to someday have all of the issues!
I got issue 11 for Christmas(eeeeeeeek!)
This is such a cute heart sampler, I think you pass it around to your friends and each one stitches on a heart <3
Each issue is just as lovely as the next:
This dala horse tin is calling me!
I really want issue 12 now!
I want an embroidered box to keep all of my stitchy stuff in!
This belongs in every cute crafty room:
I keep looking through the issue that I have and it just makes me so happy! I want to craft all day everyday and I want my house to look like all of the stitchy magic that's inside the magazine, someday! :)
If you haven't seen these magazines, you have to get one, you too will fall in LOVE.
