Japanese Embroidery books

I have a couple of cute Japanese embroidery books. I purchased these at YesAsia. (I'd link to it, but it's making my computer unhappy, just go to Shopping at YesAsia takes patience because their search engine doesn't navigate the language barrier very well. If you are going to search by ISBN at YesAsia, use the numbers only with no letters. Orders from YesAsia take at least a month to reach the USA, but shipping is free and I find their craft books are often cheaper than ours.

365 Emb Book

This one is super cute and is ISBN 4529042049

Look at the cute little felt clothes and little girl in her undies: ISBN 452904209 EmbClothes

Here's an adorable little tiny ant and a caterpillar: ISBN 452904209 EmbAntISBN 452904209 EmbCaterpillar

This is another book I have, ISBN 4579110129
ISBN 4579110129

This one is far less cute and I got it because "Freehand Embroidery" is not the style I am comfortable doing.

Look at this terrific spiderweb tote. You can't tell in the photo, but that spider is made from seed beads:

My children have been in school for 3 weeks now and it really got my crafting going again. I let myself purchase some adorable fat quarters at my LQS and I made some of those tissue holders people do all the time. I even made a bright red purse with a big pear applique from this book, ISBN 4834755371 isbn4834755371Japanese Felt PurseISBN4834755371 detail

Hopefully next week our computer will be repaired and I can show photos of my real finished items.
