By this time in January, the Tokyo Dome quilt show is in full swing and plenty of bloggers have been there and shared their photos.
This year I haven't seen any photos pop up yet, so I am wondering what kind souls will be posting their photos. Have you seen any pix? AHHHH!!! I'm going to die if I don't see some photos soon!!! Don't tempt me to go there myself next year!
To keep the Japanese Quilting tendencies happy, and after reading Lis' blog post over at Piece n Peace blog, I broke out my copy of Amy Katoh's book called Blue and White Japan.
I have the version that was published in 1996/1997. There are other versions that were printed more recently. It discusses why blue and white are the most perfect combination of color, and at some level I have to agree. It's clean, simple and very easy on the eye.
Lately I've been gravitating to the color combo of turquoise and olive green, but ok...it's certainly not as peaceful as blue and white.
Anyhow, if you are looking to learn about indigo or Japanese textiles, this book is awesome. I want to visit the shop in Japan someday.
In other news, I've recently become obsessed with knitting striped yarn from Twisted Limone - an indie Brit dyer. It's so wild and colorful. I cannot help but be seduced. I named my project, "She Blinded Me With Legwarmers".
