Japan Goodies + more

Wow it's been a long time since I've been back, and I still haven't posted my japan goodies! (Sara, if you're reading this, some of these fabrics may make their way into your mailbox... let met know if there is one that especially catches your eye!) My cousin kindly reminded me that it's been forever since I've posted... so here we go!
Japan Fabrics 1
Some new fabrics. The green one is destined to be a Japanese bandit hankerchief for Chris. The flowered one will probably be a shirt for me, and the last two most likely will turn into a quilt someday...
Japan Fabrics 2
Cute fabrics. I've seen a lot of these on Superbuzzy. My favorite is the alligators.
Japan Fabrics 3
Chris wanted me to make a Japanese quilt, but all of my fabrics were too modern for him. He selected these ones for a more Japanese-y quilt
Japan Goodies
And here are more goodies! The dragon is the mascot for the Chunichi Dragons, who we rooted for at the baseball game in Nagoya. The deer bag and the owl coin purse we bought in Japan because I was sick of carrying a backpack around looking like a tourist... I love them both!
New Kaffe and Amy Butler Fabrics
Here are some fabrics I bought from a fabric store that is closing soon. The Kaffe Fasset one will probably become a One Block Wonder quilt. Hope it looks nice! I almost feel bad cutting up the fabric because it is so beautiful...
Learn to Embroider
And lastly, here is my completed embroidery for week 2 of Crafty Daisies' learn to embroider! Hurray!

Sounds like you had a fun/fruitful trip to Japan. OK, I'm going to go back to staring at your fabric acquistion now. *wipes drool off chin*

What great fabrics--you are going to have so much fun with them. Your embroidery project is lovely--it's so great learning/enhancing and applying new skills.

Ooooo! LOVE the fabrics! (Although I already knew you had good taste.) :)

Really dig the alligator and tree fabrics but of course you know I've always been partial to hedgehogs.

OMG. Those Japanese fabrics are *adorable*. The fabric alone is reason enough to visit Japan. I have to save up my money and go one of these days!

Oh, Eye candy!!!! Love all the fabrics! My favorite is the green leaves one.

I can't wait to see what you make with the fabric.
