Japan book

Yesterday, I got wonderful magazines Keito Dama, my friend Marina bought it in YesAsia.com for me. Old issue of Keito Dama cost $18.99 and last issue cost $20.49. Keito Dama is one of the most popular knitting/crocheting magazines in Japan.


Also I received knitting book "New Style of Heirloom Knitting" by Shimada Toshiyuki (ISBN: 4-529-03992-7). The book and designs are very beautiful, photography is very artistic.

I'm very happy!

Leave, unfortunately, has ended...

Annual leave, unfortunately, has ended...

One and a half weeks we had spend with my husband at summer cottage of my daddy in Voronezh. At last I have brought the flash card that I has forgotten earlier with photos of cultivated flowers.

Next I, my husband and nephew traveled to a small hotel on Black sea. We rested in Kabardinka, in small village on the sea coast, very much it was pleasant to us. The truth was very hot weather, the sea was very pure and very warm +26С degree.
