Stitch Ideas

Hi, I came home this afternoon to two packages from eBay sellers. I bought a bound volume of Cosmopolitan magazine from 1891-1892. It has some interesting articles on marriage in Japan during that time period and the Chicago's World Fair.

I also received the latest issue of Stitch Ideas from Japan via one of my favorite sellers of Japanese craft magazines.

I think I've found some designs that I want to start on. It has a whole section devoted to children's literature adapted for embroidery and cross-stitch. They have some lovely embroidery designs for Anne of Green Gables and my all time favorite, The Secret Garden. They also have a gorgeous design of a mermaid.

I can't wait to get started on some of these designs. I need to go by my LNS and get some linen this weekend.

Until next time ^____^
