I'm Back!

It's been a tough couple of days without my computer! A pox on hackers trying to steal financial information is all I can say. DON'T FALL FOR IT PEEPS!
I haven't been doing much of anything around here, cleanup, errand running, that sort of thing, nothing blog-worthy. I did some laundry and went to take a photo of the dryer full of fluffy towels and that's when I knew I was losing it. If you wanted to see laundry you could look in your own dryers, right? (although my pretty blue polka dot towels looked mighty fine in there)
Anyhooo... I've picked up some very cute Japanese craft books lately. I don't know about you, but I love their fabrics combinations and their photography. I'll share more when the sun is out, but in the meantime.. I thought I'd share a cute little Petit Boutique number I picked up recently.
You know how I love the cherries and those little small series of books. It sadly borders on obsession! And look how cute these little appliques from Daiso are, they just seem to go with the little book, don't they?
If you think they're cute and would like a chance to win these goodies, leave a comment and I'll let Binnie pick a name this weekend! Hows that for a sweet treat?

They are adorable and to have Binnie pick a winner, what an honor! I am sorry about your computer. My laptop has been plagued with viruses trying to get at my stuff. I am glad the family computer is a Mac and I can use that in the meantime. Hope all stays well with your computer.

Pam, I just love any of the Japanese books - they do have a way of making everything look so pleasing to the eye! Now if I had my own personal translator....hmmmm! Too pad about your computer - I know mine has been doing weird things these days, but I figured it was just our goofy weather!
Cheers!

EVERYTHING you do is blog-worthy! And oh so deliciously entertaining. I was actually very disappointed you didn't show a shot of your towels in the dryer.

I'll be happy for you when your computer is tip top again. But I will miss how your emails looked coming from Bret's computer.

Love the giveaway. I have developed quite a love of Japanese fabrics in the last year or so. It all started with your blog, and that is a good thing. It was the first one I ever read. I am hooked. I read a magazine article on quilt blogs (I think it was Quilter's Newsletter). I read ever post. Thank you, you provide a lot of smiles.

This little piggy went to Auntie Pami's ....I want to see the towels. Mine are so boring (Costco specials)! That should be the next fun project how to dress those bad boys up. I love cherries too. Just look in my pantry (dried cherries, canned cherries, dark chocolate covered cherries, oops, wait a minute my dh got them!, cherries for ice cream. ok that's enough...Thank you Pam and please tell Binnie to pick me. It's a Pam thing!

I seriously think I need a Daiso run! I am in need of some sort of lavender container for a luncheon in June and they might have something I could use. Any quilt stores near the one in Milpitas? Or was it Union City?

Oh how I wish we had a Daiso near by......I am thinking about driving 9 hours to seattle just to go to one! LOL!!
Please count me in....Love your blog :)

I took a picture of the bathroom at Christmas because I thought the red towels looked so good with the red berries on the wreath I had hung above the toilet. And YOU thought you were losing it!

Love the giveaway items! Very cute.

Well, and here I thought I cornered the market on a glamorous lifestyle .... I think right now seeing your towels in your dryer might be the highlight of my week!

DUDE, MUST HAVE THOSE PIGGIES!! But those rotten hackers?!?! Argh, I've had every CC# stolen. Yeah, um, I've been shopping at "secure" sites. That is until they are not secure. Oopsie. Grrrr.

Hope I'm not too late. Sorry about your computer. My husb recently had his pc stolen and all kinds of trouble went on from there. The books are lovely and they are most definately a weakness of mine. Happy New Year.

Oh my gosh! Those pigs are adorable!!
I have finally solved a two-month long adventure with something that attacked the computer from the WWE wrestling site. No, it wasn't me! lol It was my son, who loves wrestling and does not understand about viruses, etc. Let's just say that if it didn't get solved soon, I was going to throw the dang thing away. He is no longer allowed to use the computer. Ever.
I just read the last line of your post. Oh, my! A giveaway? Count me in. :)

Hi!!! A cherrie lovin' "lurker" comin' out to say HEY! :o)

I just stopped by to say hi and boy are those cute little bags! I can commiserate on the computer too. The family pc was hijacked and is out for repairs thanks to the sophisticated surfing my 14 yo darling son does....gotta love 'em.
Have a great day!

I think Daiso designs just for you and Monica and me. Except they only do it to tease me since there isn't one here.

I'm sorry to hear your computer was hacked because that is the pits. We went through that not long ago.

Max has come up with the worst possible punishments for people who write viruses for computers and who try to take people's money through them.

You know...there seems to be a lot of people's computers getting sick here lately. Mine was, too. It's kinda weird.

I love the Japanese craft books, too. They are great for inspiration.

I hope you're computer is well now.
