Now I am not going to go on about the wonders of Japanese crochet books & patterns (again), but I am going to mention where I got my books from...
...in case you to want one of your own to drool over at home.
My lovely new books are from Pomadour's Craft Cafe on Etsy.
It's a great little store; Megumi Ishida (store owner) has tonnes of delicious crochet, knitting & sewing books to choose from AND she sells cute Japanese fabric!
Hmm.. as I write this I now realise I should have bought some fabric - doh!
Anyway, the payment process is easy, the shipping is cheap as chips and it takes less than a week for them to arrive.
