Last week I ventured solo to Tomato in Nippori, to find some fabric to try (heavy emphasis on TRY, because sewing garments is just not my thing) making a myself a tunic. I've been having some issues keeping me from outings, but really trying to get back into my walking habit again.
And today my friend Julie W and I went to Sakurahorikiri, a washi paper and craft shop in Asakusabashi. We drove and it was a short walk from the little parking spot. I'm in awe of my friends who drive here in Tokyo. Grateful, too.
Only after returning home, did I notice on the map that we'd been very close to a shop called Cotton Family. It might be a good resource for ordering fabric online (!) at least from within Japan.
Meanwhile, at home... in the evenings I am steadily making progress on my hand appliqué projects...
