i me mine

I love japanese craft magazines. they have inspiring photography and nice ideas for simple projects. this is 'i me mine' (the first volume 2008) and there are many others you should look out for. my favourites are 'come home!' and 'arne'. just flicking through makes me want to start sewing!
