What's the only way to make a hot sticky Chicago summer weekend bearable? A trip to Mitsuwa for some Japanese goodness. I found this very cool book on embroidery.. Point (ISBN4277311482)

I'm always in a mad rush at Mitsuwa to look through things because Oscar is running around violently deshelving every book he can get his hands on. So although I LOVE this book I think it was a bit of a impulse buy. I'm not really any good at embroidery. I'm thinking I should pass this book on to someone who could really use it.
So if anyone is interested and wants to paypal me the $15 plus shipping to them let me know.
These goodies from the dollar store I'm keeping and are more in my budget - 3 new crochet hooks and a tiny little basket bag (!) that I can send out with swap treats in it.
