A rare thing indeed, Daddy-ebi took Ebi-kun out for the day so I was left to my own devices. I
wanted needed to get out of the house for a bit, I quite fancied going down to Shimokitazawa for a wander around the shops, I love that place but it is quite a trek from here plus is was so hot yesterday so I opted for Parco instead. Nowhere near as inspiring but I got to sit in Starbucks and read a book I will be reviewing for you next week and pick up some crafty supplies that I needed from Yuzayawa.
Last time I bought sewing needles for my machine I opted for the cheaper ones, big mistake, they have been breaking left, right and centre, this time I went back to my trusted Organ needles, sometimes it is better to pay the extra!
Obon starts on Thursday so if you are thinking of ordering anything from the shop, get in quick and I will mail it off as soon as possible, if not the next mailing date will be the 16th.
I have something big planned for you for September, I have been gathering friends and bloggers whose work I love, for a festival. I have a couple of spots free, if you blog and like writing tutorials for your specialty craft and would like some free advertising spots to the run up to Christmas, drop me a line and I will fill you in with what is going on. Any craft or skill is welcome!
