Ay, caramba! It has been a long while since I have posted! I’ve been so busy packing up orders that I really haven’t done any crafting or anything else remotely interesting to share with you. The other day, though, I had to help my mother with some errands, which proved rather fruitful for me, cuz I got to have tasty udon and snatch some Japanese craft books.

And here are my noodles. It’s gobo ten, which is burdock root tempura with udon.
I didn’t purchase any sewing books, but I did pick up a couple books on handwork. I’m not sure why I got these, since I never do any handwork and know very little about it, but maybe I can learn!

I also got a sampler book of embroidery stitches:
