Fabric Friday

In between eating, visiting relatives, seeing sights, and chaperoning students, I did a bit of shopping too while in Taiwan. One of my favorite new things is this fabric tissue box cover...green velveteen flowers on light green linen...

Pretty tissue dispenser

I spied a small sewing section at a department store near Taipei 101 and picked up some fat quarters...the Japanese book on small felt creations is from Eslite, a huge bookstore that is open 24 hours. Their magazine section is incredible.

And I got a cute compact umbrella...I love the cheery print!
