I am so pleased to see more and more Japanese crafts people and artists publishing their books in English. Today Etsy Storque has a feature about Suzuko Koseki's new book Patchwork Style. There is a free pattern and tutorial.
Also by the same publisher:
Amanda Blake Soule - The Creative Family and Handmade Home
Akiko Mano - linen wool cotton
Handmade Home is exciting to see there. It's not coming out until August but it looks lovely. You can read more on Amanda's website, Soule Mama
I have the Creative Family book. It's a sweet little book with lots of cute and special ideas. I recommend it for first time parents who have an interest in unschooling or homeschooling, Waldorf parenting ideas. It's very much how I approached parenting with Biggie and what I would like to return to with Little Guy - just as soon as I finish blogging and checking my emails :)
