Konichiwa...that's hello in Japanese for all the people that didn't complete year 8 Japanese in high school. It's finally going to be useful, unlike year 12 algebra.
Anyway the point....
I really should be in bed but I have just come across the most amazing pattern books - the only problem.....they are in JAPANESE!!! Wait until I crawl into bed at midnight and have to explain to my husband what I've been looking at. He'll think I have gone mad.
Mum, I know you were excited about 'Ottobre' - but Finland has nothing on the style of the Japanese. Click on the link to this site and you will see what I mean. http://www.tessuti-shop.com/collections/pattern-books
From what they are telling me, the diagrams are so well drawn, you don't need written explanations on how to sew, just follow the pictures. Should I take a chance?
