Shopping and crafting

Yep, that's what I spent all weekend doing! Saturday, I had the day free so I went down to Nippori again, this time I didn't get lost and had a large coffee before tackling Tomato. I also knew which floors I was interested in, last time I did a lot of wandering, this is what I picked up for the shop, mostly cotton but some is linen/cotton blend. I have to resize the pictures and work out shipping costs so it will be a couple of days before they make it to the shop.
And, this is for me, I saw it last time and loved but didn't buy it but then kicked myself all the way home. I haven't decided what to do with it yet, trousers or maybe a long top to wear over trousers (I don't do skirts and dresses!)

Then yesterday we just stayed home and had a lazy day, it is the first time we have done this for such a long time, the boys spent all morning making origami animals and the such like whilst I made this dolls quilt for my niece for Christmas and a chefs apron for her big brother (aged 5) I want to make him a hat too but I haven't quite worked out how yet, might do a test run today. I also made a test book cover for hubby and did some painting on my box, a lovely day.  What did you do?
