Hi Cristine, interesting list!

Just seen your comment on my blog, so glad to got to see some Japanese embroidery in person. It's quite wonderful in real life isn't it. I tracked down the website for the fair and saw that Shizuka Kusano was one of the exibitors - I have a couple of her books and the work is just wonderful. You are very lucky to have seen her work up close.

By the way, I'm with you and Margaret on the live in housekeeper.
