Earlier this month I was going through one of those funky days. Funky as in bad.

Sans inspiration, sans my favourite white pen, and my throat and stomach was playing up from gastric reflux (...ew). And then the postman dropped by, what a godsend.

He handed me my own copy of Mina Perhonen Embroidery (2), and although it didn't cure my throat to this day it is a constant source of inspiration.

... now all i'll have to do is get 皆川明の旅のかけら, Particle, Textile (1), Print (3) and my collection will be complete. ;}

lilly - hehe i knew you'd love it!

maditi - what is it about birds? girls seem to love them like boys love cars! :P

stella - ooo yes i saw those! i ordered mine through kinokuniya's online sydney store, it was the only mina perhonen book in stock. they said they could order in a few other books from their japan store. for me it's hard to track down an english book site that stocks mina perhonen! good luck with finding a copy! :}
