I ordered this book sight unseen for two reasons: 1) it's an Ondori publication, and I've never seen an Ondori publication that I didn't like, and 2) the cover is blue, and blue is my favorite color! With these strict standards in mind, I took the plunge and spent the money! I have no regrets... the book is beautiful!
Although the text is in Japanese, there are beautiful pictures and very clear diagrams. What do you get for you money? Rose garden doily, Fairy doily, Duchess doily and coaster, Water lily beaded doily, Rosette tatted pieces on Dresden Plate quilt block, Tie (women's not men's), Cathedral window wine glass cover, Summer time pin cushion/hat/barrette, Dream floral hair pieces, Angel necklace, Rainbow (3 hanky edgings), Nostalgia small garment bags, Clover edging on linen circle, Maypole edging on linen circle, Victorian Poesy two small bags, Floral box (one round, one square), Pot-pourri sachet (2), Shoes and pouch, Tatting bag, and Tea time (3 pincushions, 1 needle holder, 1 tape measure).
The dark green piece on my previous post is part of one of the sachets. Tell me now... are you inspired?
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
