It was just incredible today to walk into Libro Shibuya, Sanseido Shimokitazawa and Shimokitazawa Village Vanguard and see our new wrapping book sitting next to another book I'm on the cover of! This book was on the shelves too! It was such an honour, too, to be on the same shelves as my lovely and amazingly talented friends Udagawa-san, Killigraph-san and Yuzuko-san! You will love Yuzuko-san's new embroidery book too! It's the one on the right with the little smiley face. It's amazing!

    Hello Japan Australia! Ohisashiburi desu! Thank you very much for your comment. Always a pleasure to hear from you. When are you going to come back to Japan? Soon I hope! It was so strange and thrilling - to see myself in the section I always turn to for inspiration! Words can not explain. I wonder when my luck will end!

    Hello Memtree - thank you so much! Village Vanguard is a lot of fun. Although I always seem to get lost in there even after 1 1/2 years of living here! ha!

    Hello Irene, waou thank you so much! I hope you will have a fantastic time! Will you be coming to Tokyo? If you can, I hope I can meet you at my workshop on November 17th!

    Hello Odessa - oh thank you! you're so sweet! Kanpai to you too!
