modern, japanese, fabric = etsy

As I was saying yesterday, I was so inspired by window shopping about japanese fabric, books and magazines that I found my self cruising around etsy and here are some of the awesome things I found.
First, I found sewdeerlyloved
Kerri has a really inspiring blog and makes super duper cute projects. After seeing bee inspired and all the Munki Munki sites, I decided to buy a piece of Heather Ross's Munki Munki fabric with gnomes on it. In addition, she had Monaluna and an aqua/red designer print bundle that I couldn't live without!

My friend Carol clued me into this book. She had seen it on PamKittyMornings blog awhile back. Pam being super cool helped Carol find it on ebay. Once Carol sent me a picture I searched and searched for it. And low and behold....I found it on etsy.


This etsy seller is in Japan, so I haven't received my items yet...so here are the pictures.
have you seen this? deco tape...I have no idea what to do with it..but it's pink with matryoshka dolls....so I HAD to have it!
plus this lovely little book...
Patchwork Hexagon Book


hmm...I see a project for my aqua and red fabrics.
well that's all for today...stay tuned tomorrow...as I will addressing -- commitment.
