umm ... one year later ... And tomato

After a year of not blogging, I thought I might try. It took me about half an hour to get the right email address, and another half an hour to work out the password =/ but anyway I managed to log on, and I am guessing that my aunt is going to be very shocked.

Last month my Dad went to Tokyo, Japan. And I got him to go to tomato for me. tomato is an amazing fabric shop with 6 levels!!!! this is someones blog about her going to tomato . anyway I got my Dad to buy me some fabric =] the fabric is quite big and I'm planning on making a patchwork dog, with some help from my amazing aunt in the summer. At the moment I'm thinking of making an Amy Butler bag with the fabric, like this, from her 'in stiches' book

this is the 'tomato' bag, proof that he did go. and got all of these amazing fabrics from Tokyo.
this piece is amazing. My Dad said this is very Japanese, with the red and gold and the pattern
i love this one.
this one has little tomatoes on!
these are little birds with a music note and a little red flower
I love this fabric because it has little mice and cheese, it's so cute
this is a pack with ten pieces of fabric in, they have all types of flowers over.
I love the reds and shapes in this pack of ten
this pack has lots of little flowers all over the ten pieces.


I love all of the these, they are all amazing!!! I can't wait to start using them!

hope you had a good last year =]

I don't know about my aunt being shocked - I am. I can't go out for an evening and leave you home alone if you can hack into by account!!

Dad did do well but I think we have to thank Hideo Nakanishi for helping him.

Now off to change my password!

Mum xxx LOL!

Hi Em - those fabrics are great! But I'm mega fed up that you have some of the mouse fabric I've been wanting for ages!!! Can't wait for you to come and play in my sewing room! Lily xxx

Wow - absolutely wonderful Japanese fabrics there. Surely you won't need all that lot for a simple bag?! Looking forward to seeing the pictures of your finished item(s). :)
