New books

Kinokuniya Bookshop in Sydney is, in my opinion, one of the best sources of books in the city. Plus they have a wicked Japanese section which appeals to the craft, quilting and Blythe parts of my soul.

On Saturday, your correspondent went a little crazy.

This book is all bags, and written in Japanese. Don't worry - there are some good diagrams so you don't get completely lost, plus photographic "step-by-step" guides for making two of the more complex bags. It seems a few people are blogging about making the bags from this book as well. The best bags aren't on the front cover!

This book has been a favourite of a lot of Blythe lovers for some time. I think it might be Christina's fault, as she makes the most amazing little animals by hand, amongst other things.

And finally, a purchase I had resisted for some time, only for the reason that I thought it was more for beginning quilters. Once I had the book in my hands though, I saw this was not so. I'm still reading it, but it has some theories about design that I like. People are blogging about making quilts in this book as well, it seems.
